I just relized this... the guy who does the voice of boston in the dig, also does it for the bad robot in T2(terminator 2). If you talk to him about brink in the library, he'll say "have you seen this boy?"(the T2 bad guy's line when he's trying to find the boy). I thought this was funny.

That's been known for a while (since the game was announced actually :)), but it's pretty cool, eh?

Not really a "cameo", more of an in-joke.

On the cover of my version of the Dig, it pretty much states that (it says the actors name followed by something like "from T2 Judgment day", I'd get the box, but we're moving soon and it's been packed away) and since it almost definately wasn't arnie, I assumed it must have been the T-1000.

So no, not that much of a secret, but pretty cool anyway. i'm guessing if they actually had gone ahead and made a movie of it, he would have been cast as Boston Low. That would be cool.

The actor is Robert Patrick (http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0001598/).

If you check out MobyGames (http://pc.mobygames.com/game/versions/gameId,354/)' trivia you'll also read about the PenUltimate PDA being the "T-1000 model".

Hmm, never actually thought about that, i just always thought the voice sounded right, but you'r right, he doesn't look the part.
