Our affection for Nolan North is no secret. The man of a thousand voices is already scheduled to appear in Naughty Dog's Uncharted 3 and Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed: Revelations. Now, it appears that we can add another blockbuster role to North's resume, as he has been cast to voice The Penguin in Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham City.

If you were secretly hoping for Danny DeVito to reprise his role from Tim Burton's film, you're out of luck. The ubiquitous voice actor will give Oswald Cobblepot a cockney accent, according to Rocksteady's Dax Ginn. We can expect to see North add another notch to his vocal-range bedpost this year.

Batman: Arkham City swoops into stores nationwide on October 21, 2011.
