Fry Confirms V For Vendetta Casting

Empire Online talked to Stephen Fry, who is the voice of The Guide in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and the actor confirmed rumors that he is starring in Warner Bros.’ V For Vendetta.

“I’m playing the character of Gordon Deitrich, who’s a chat show host who questions the authority of the people who run Britain in this post-viral facist state, as it were,” says Fry.

Fry also revealed more casting that hasn’t been announced yet, saying that John Hurt, Tim Pigott-Smith and Sinead Cusack are part of the cast. They join the previously-announced Natalie Portman, James Purefoy and Stephen Rea.

The action-thriller, directed by James McTeigue and written by the Wachowski brothers, hits theaters on November 4.
