The gaming industry has evolved so much since it was first introduced, to the point that there are many video games with qualified cinematic experience for the players nowadays. There are a lot of famous voice actors and actresses in the gaming industry, but game developers still want more.
That is why we have seen so many famous celebs in other fields being invited to join as voice actors and actresses in AAA titles. While some say that those celebs are actually not good enough to be a voice actor for video games, there are still successful cases. That is why today we have gathered ten most successful celebs that have joined in a video game project. Without keeping you waiting any longer, right below is our list.
Perhaps a lot of you do not know about this African American actor, but this man has a huge experience at doing voices for video games. That is why he is the first celeb in this list of ours. Keith David has been Admiral David Anderson in Mass Effect series, the Nick Fury in Marvel Heroes, as well as many more roles in big video game title.
The most special video game project Keith David has worked with is Saints Row IV. In this title, he voiced character Julius Little, as well as featuring himself in the game. This is not the only time a celeb featuring himself in a video game, but featuring himself and another character is something memorable.
Emma Stone is a AAA star of Hollywood, no doubt about that. She has been the smart and beautiful Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield, and she has also won an Oscar for herself after La La Land.
But she has been in a video game too. She was Amanda Cartwright, the lover of the main character Wei Shen. Sleeping Dogs is an action game about gangster life in Hong Kong.
Another lovely AAA actress from Hollywood. Kristen Bell has always been known for her loveliness, and for her role of Anna in Frozen. After having been so successful in Anna in Frozen, she keeps voicing for this character in video games like Disney Infinity series or Kingdom Hearts III.
But she also features another character in video games, and that is Lucy Stillman in the famous Assassin’s Creed game series of Ubisoft
This man is a talented Hollywood actor of the previous movie era. Burt Reynolds is often known for his movies from the 1970s to the 1990s. But this man has also featured in the famous title Grand Theft Auto: Vice City of Rockstar Games. He is also the second celeb in our list to feature himself in a game. In Saints Row: The Third, he played himself, and he was the mayor of Steelport city.
This actress used to work with the original animated movies of Disney, but not much anymore. Hayden Panettiere now focuses more on the TV series. However, she has had the chance to feature herself as character Samantha in Until Dawn – the extremely successful horror game in 2015.
She has not shown up at the other Until Dawn games, or the newest game of Supermassive Game developer, but we all hope that she will, someday.
Ellen Page has always been a familiar face in Hollywood. She has not had many chances to prove herself with big roles in AAA movies, but then her acting skills are undeniable.
Although she has not had a main role in a successful movie, she has been the Jodie Holmes in Beyond: Two Souls game. For anyone who has ever tried this title, they all admit that Ellen Page is the true soul of this game. No other actress can feature Jodie Holmes as well as Ellen Page. Although this actress has not joined any other video game project, we hope that she will change her mind in the future.
This is another legendary actor of the previous movie era. Martin Sheen has been in many AAA movies from the 1970s to the 1990s. He was also the unfortunate Uncle Ben in The Amazing Spider-Man with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone.
Although we do not know much about his movies in recent year, the fans of Mass Effect game series know him well. He was the voice of Illusive Man in Mass Effect 2 and Mass Effect 3.
We all know about this handsome UK actor as Jon Snow from Game of Thrones series. But little do we know that he was the Salen Kotch – the villain of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Although Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare was not a successful game in general, we still hope that Kit Harington will join the Game of Thrones game projects in the future.
If we do not have this iconic actor in this list of ours, it will truly be a sin. Starting from the legendary Luke Skywalker in all the Star Wars movies up to this moment, Mark Hamill has also secured the role of Joker for himself in many animated movies, TV series, and video games as well. Mark Hamill was the Joker of all Batman: Arkham titles, as well as many other DC titles.
There have been some rumors saying that Mark Hamill is the voice of Don Corneo in Final Fantasy VII remake. Although there has been no confirmation from Square Enix, the new Don Corneo does sound like Mark Hamill.
Last but not least, Keanu Reeves is the name to finish our list today. After his success in The Matrix trilogy, he featured Neo in Enter The Matrix, all we all thought that was the only time Keanu Reeves joining a video game project, until Cyberpunk 2077.
Although we have not known for sure what is the main mission of Johnny Silverhand in Cyberpunk 2077, we still can be sure that this title has been in the center of the attention since we knew we would have Keanu Reeves in the game.
