The third volume of Netflix’s Love, Death, and Robots drops tomorrow, and today we’re learning voice actor Troy Baker will star in David Fincher’s animation directorial debut.
Baker will star in the episode “Bad Travelling”, which is based on a short story by Neal Asher. Here’s the official description for the episode:
“A jable shark-hunting sailing vessel is attacked by a giant crustacean whose size and intelligence is matched only by its appetite. Mutiny, betrayal and ventriloquism with a corpse… welcome aboard the animation directing debut of David Fincher.”

Fincher is the producer of Love, Death, and Robots, but this is his first time in the director’s chair for an episode. The filmmaker is known for directing movies like Seven, Fight Club, The Social Network, and more.
Baker, meanwhile, is very much known for his voice acting work in video games. He is the voice of The Last of Us’ Joel, Uncharted 4’s Sam Drake, and BioShock Infinite’s Booker DeWitt, among others. In animation, he has worked on shows including Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, One Piece, and Naruto.
Love, Death, and Robots is an adult animated show on Netflix. Each episode of the series is a standalone story produced by a unique creative team. As the title suggests, each episode handles the subjects of love, death, and robots in various ways.
