Top 5 Celebrities in Video Games

It’s no surprise that video games attract the attention of all people and that includes celebrities. Celebrities have actually been in games for years including the Call of Duty franchise and even the GTA series. Some actors have even lent their bodies and faces to a game while other just voice act for them. I am going to show you the top 5 celebrities that have spent their time contributing to video games.

#5: Kiefer Sutherland (Known for the hit TV show “24”)

Kiefer actually voice acted in “Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain” and actually won BTVA’s Video Game Voice Acting Award for Best Lead Vocal Vocal performance in a video game. Sutherland also voice acted in “Call of Duty: World at War” as Sergeant Roebuck.

 

#4: Liam Neeson (Taken, Batman Begins, and Star Wars: The Phantom Menace)

Neeson plays Father in “Fallout 3.” Now I don’t know about you guys but it was pretty cool to be the son of Liam Neeson (well his voice) in this game. Although his time was short in the game the fact that you could have dialogue and interaction with Neeson as your dad could not be any cooler.

 

#3: Robin Lord Taylor (Penguin on “Gotham“)

Taylor voice acted for The Outsider in Dishonored 2. This was his first video game appearance but hopefully not the last. He plays the Outsider in this video game and does a fantastic job being creepy and mysterious as you play through the game. Hopefully this isn’t the last Dishonored game we get because I personally want more especially if Robin Lord Taylor is involved.

 

#2: Kevin Spacey (Superman Returns, Horrible Bosses, and House of Cards)

Kevin played and voice acted for “Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.” He plays his usual business tycoon self for this video game and it looked like he had a lot of fun doing it. He plays the main villain in this game and his role in the game is down-right amazing. If you haven’t seen his performance for this series you really need to check it out.

 

#1: Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker in the Star Wars movies and as the voice actor for the Joker in Batman: The Animated Series)

Mark comes in as number 1 because of his voice acting in “Batman: Arkham Knight.” Replaying his role as Joker in the Batman animated series, Mark kills it in this video game. He IS the voice of the Joker in my opinion, and hearing him and trying to take him down in this Batman game is ridiculously fun.
