That being said, Henriksen is always a welcome face in the Alien franchise. After making a name for himself in 1986's Aliens as the android Bishop, Henriksen's appearance in Alien 3 felt like a real treat (at the end of a movie that needs way more treats, if you ask me), and he added a bit of gravitas to the junk food actioner AVP: Alien Vs. Predator.
Sega and Rebellion, the makers of the new Aliens Vs. Predator first-person shooter, recognize Henriksen as probably the only actor next to Sigourney Weaver whose likeness has become synonymous with the Alien series -- they're adding Henriksen to the 2010 video game.
Henriksen gushes, "This is the first time I've been fully represented in a game, with my voice and how I look, and the Rebellion guys have done a great job. I might score from this game!" Bad puns aside, every bit of news about this game is making me more and more excited. Henriksen will be playing Karl Bishop Weylund, a descendant of the character he played in the AVP film. Aliens Vs. Predator, coming to PC, X-Box 360, and PS3, should hit stores in February.
