#Blizzard finally dropped the newest character in “#Overwatch” named Doomfist, the 25th hero in the game. So far, players love everything about him, most especially his skills. Unfortunately, actor Terry Crews will not be voicing him, contrary to what the community expected.

According to PVP Live, the actor responsible for voicing Doomfist [VIDEO] in “Overwatch” is none other than Sahr Ngaujah. He may not be as popular as Crews, but Ngaujah has enough film experiences to take the role of the new character. Here is everything about him in a nutshell.

Who is Sahr Ngaujah

Ngaujah has a few films to his name, such as “The Signal,” “How I Spent My Summer,” “Stomp the Yard” and “Blood Done Sign My Name,” among others.

He also took the role of General Yaabari in the second season of “The Blacklist,” while the “Last Resort” appears to be his latest onscreen job. This guy definitely has the resume to back him up,

Interestingly, the voice actor [VIDEO] of Doomfist in “Overwatch” is far better known as a musical actor. In fact, most people know him for his role in the musical titled “Fela! The Musical,” which features the life and inspiration of a Nigerian composer Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Ngaujah even received a Tony Award nomination and a Laurence Olivier Award nomination for his work in the said musical. Since Doomfist hails from Nigeria, it is clear why Blizzard chose Ngaujah than Crews. The studio basically wanted an authentic approach and, obviously, Ngaujah can better do it because of his race.

What to expect from Doomfist

At the time of this writing, Doomfist is already live on the “OverwatchPublic Tester Server [VIDEO].

His official release on the game remains to be unseen, but this should be announced in the next few days or so. As for his skills, they make him a highly-mobile character and a good frontline fighter. He is able to slam and knock enemies off with his fists, while his Rocket Punch allows him to charge opponents into a wall. His ultimate, which is called Meteor Strike, breaks any advancing team apart.

Since Doomfist is still in the testing phase in “Overwatch,” it is expected from him to undergo a series of changes. Perhaps some of his skills will be toned down in terms of damage and effects. Blizzard might also resort to removing and/or replacing one of this skills. Clearly, anything can happen on the test server. As far as his skins, emotes and highlights are concerned, these are yet to be available in-game.
