Despite rumours to the contrary, Hollywood heavyweight Willem Dafoe will not star in Quantic Dream’s upcoming Beyond. Cornered by Joystiq after a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con overnight, director David Cage denied the actor’s involvement with a swift shake of the head.

One person who is definitely linked with the project, however, is Kadeem Hardison. The actor, who’s best known for his role as Dwayne Wayne in A Different World, will play a paranormal investigator who “raises” protagonist Jodie Holmes.

During the panel, Quantic Dream also revealed a few behind the scenes videos of another performer, Eric Winters, whose character’s identity has yet to be revealed. Apparently, there are over 160 actors in total connected to the project.
