Who Is The Longest Recurring Actor In Any Video Game Franchise?
Answer: Joseph Kucan
Although born Joseph Kucan and sporting a long list of acting accomplishments, millions of gamers across the world simply know him as Kane—the messianic prophet and uber-villain from the long-running Command & Conquer video game series.
Kucan was hired by Westwood Studios in 1992 and served as their Director of Dramatic Assets for the next ten years. In addition to directing countless game cut scenes, including all the cut scenes for the Command & Conquer games, Kucan appeared as Kane in every Command & Conquer game except Red Alert 2 and Yuri’s Revenge (his absence in both was a result of the absence of Kane, not another actor playing the role).
In addition to his role as Kane, Joseph Kucan has also appeared in other games including The Legend of Kyrandia – Book One, Blade Runner, and A Few Best Men.
