View Full Version : Shaun Hastings/Danny Wallace

Hastings physical shape is obviously modelled very closely on the actor playing his voice, Danny Wallace, as are several other characters.
However, as Wallace isn't very well known outside the UK, is this changed in editions sold in other countries? Does the French editions Hastings look and sound like Dany Boon (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0200702/) for example?

Is Danny Wallace well known in Holland, Dynamite? I always kind of assumed he was an entirely British celebrity... and to be honest, he's not THAT well known here. At least, not compared to his regular collaborator, Dave Gorman (http://www.davegorman.com/) .

Dany Boon in a video game?! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif
He's a comedian, originally. Not an actor.
He's very "goofy", the French would probably not like to see him in a video game as they wouldn't take him seriously.

And Hastings looks the same in every game, no matter what country you are in.
Adapting the characters to the celebrities of the respective countries the game is sold in sounds like a lot of work for something most people will not care about. And Hastings is supposed to come across like "the arrogant Brit" anyway. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif

(Mind you, I'm not saying the British are arrogant. Just that Hastings is.)

He's not arrogant! He's funny. I like him.
Okay maybe he is a bit arrogant. But he's funny. I like him.
