Deus Ex & Star Trek actor, Elias Toufexis, joins the crew of The Captain is Dead

Professional sci-fi cannon fodder, and peerless vocal artiste, lends his talents to upcoming, indie sci-fi survival strategy.

Fresh from starring in Immortals - Fenyx Rising for Ubisoft, and Blood of Zeus on Netflix, prodigious actor, Elias Toufexis, joins the crew of The Captain is Dead for some over-the-top, sci-fi survival strategy.

If you’ve played a videogame in the last 10 years, you will undoubtably have heard Elias’ gravelly voice in titles like Splinter Cell Blacklist, Far Cry Primal, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and, of course, Deus Ex, in which Toufexis played the bionically enhanced detective, Adam Jensen… before cyberpunk was cool.

Few actors can claim a showreel as impressive, but two things make Elias the perfect casting for the eminently expendable Crewman, who is, strategically speaking, a walking death sponge.

First of all, Elias has been needlessly brutalized on a number of TV shows, including moody sci-fi drama, The Expanse, and, more appropriately, Star Trek Discovery, in which he was given a particularly nasty Suus Mahna smack down, making him uniquely qualified to fill the role of space-faring cannon fodder.

Secondly, despite having a voice that’s more macho than a Chuck Norris cameo in a Fast and Furious movie, Elias is an adorable Star Trek geek with a crazy-good sense of humor, bringing authentic hilarity to death and destruction in the merciless depths of space. Be sure to watch this Crewman teaser to the end for some chuckle-worthy out-takes!

Elias joins Kevan Brighting (The Stanley Parable, Portal) to complete a cast of amazing actors all eager to avoid a horrible, tentacle-induced death as they follow your strategy for survival, repair the ship and, hopefully, hyperspace the heck out of trouble!

The Captain is Dead will be dropping out of warp on Steam, iOS and Android on February the 1st...  and you can wishlist it on Steam today!
