Elias Toufexis has confirmed – on his FB account – that he will play Andriy Kobin in the upcoming Splinter Cell game, Blacklist. Andriy Kobin is a character we also met in Conviction, who was Sam’s contractor, a drug runner who was responsible for Sarah’s death. Andriy Kobin was working for third Echelon so it will be interesting to see his role into this.
According to the game’s description, Sam is building a whole new Echelon unit; his team, his way. Anna “Grim” Grimsdottir is his technical operations manager, CIA operative Isaac Briggs brings additional firepower, and resident hacker Charlie Cole rounds out his support crew. 4th Echelon is a fully mobile ops unit with unlimited resources and cutting edge technology aboard the repurposed stealth airliner, the Paladin.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is planned for an August 20th release on PC, X360 and PS3.
We’ve included below a scene from Conviction in which you can enjoy Toufexis’ acting!
