He’s no Augustus “Cole Train” Cole, but Commander Jaxon in Crackdown 3 is voiced and modeled by video game fan and hobbyist Terry Crews. Although he did some voice work in Saints Row IV as Benjamin King, it was originally Michael Clarke Duncan’s character, which had to be recast after Duncan’s death in 2012. Here, finally, is Crews in all his mighty glory! How we’ve gotten this far without Terry Crews’ bombastic persona and snarling face in a game is a mystery, but Microsoft is at last rectifying the issue. Commander Jaxon is the super powered version of Crews that most people associate with the real-life person anyway.
We almost got a Terry Crews version of Doomfist in Overwatch, but according to Crews’ account of his visit with Blizzard, he just wasn’t right for the part. This, despite his famous mock audition video.
