There have been a three new interviews with the Kane's Wrath actors Joe Kucan, Kane, and Carl Lumbly, Brother Marcius. While not surprising that two of the interviews were with "Kane" himself, all three seemed to be an intriguing read.

Over at VideoGamer.com, Kucan revealed that he does not play video games and that he "was
bored of Halo in the first 15 minutes". Yet he and his friends were captivated by Wii "tennis for literally six hours".

GameInformer contains the remaining two articles one of Kucan and one of Lumbly. While Kucan's interview did not appear to have anything breathtaking such as him being bored with Halo or enjoying the Wii, it was a good read. On the other hand, Lumbly's interview was quite interesting. As GameInformer states "Between his roles on Alias, Justice League, Battlestar Galactica, M.A.N.T.I.S. and more, actor Carl Lumbly is practically a walking sci-fi convention." And now, of course, Kane's Wrath.

This is the part I enjoyed the most, it details his encounter with the Command and Conquer Series and his family's reaction.

I was approached about the role in the conventional way—it was brought to my attention by my agent. I didn’t really know anything about the game or anything, and I said it would probably be fine, but give me a day to think about it, which is always what I do if I need to weasel. [laughs] I came home and mentioned the game at the dinner table, and my son—who is quite a gamer—was very impressed and proceeded to reel off some of the history of it. He was especially impressed because he said it was live action and that it had kind of gone away for a while and that this was a big deal. He’s 19 now, but at the time he was 18. As a father, any time I have a chance, I want to impress him—or at least not be lame—so I jumped on it. Then I had a lot of fun.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed these three articles. While I could not glean any information regarding another sequel in these interviews, there could be a good chance for a second expansion.
