Freddie Prinze Jr. to voice Mass Effect 3's James Vega

We've already heard about James Vega, one of the new companions for Commander Shepard in Mass Effect 3, and now we know that when you hear him it'll be Sarah Michelle Gellar's husband talking. Freddie Prinze, Jr. has signed on as the voice for the rambunctious soldier companion, and talks about his role in this official video from BioWare, which you can watch below.

He also waxes poetic about the characters in the series overall, saying that "sometimes you want to be evil. Sometimes you want to punch somebody instead of saying, 'You should have been there.'" Hey, Cole Ortiz -- remember in day eight when you messed up and lost both Jack Bauer and the nuclear rods to the terrorists? Yeah, about that. You should have been there.
