We all love seeing celebs in places we wouldn't expect and many actors like to bring a new challenge to themselves by lending their voices to our favorite video game characters. Here are some stars who have contributed their signature voices to the gaming industry:
Emma Stone lent her signature voice to minor character Amanda Cartwright in Sleeping Dogs in 2012. Lucy Liu was also in the game, voicing Vivienne Lu.
Ellen Page was the voice and rather impressive motion capture actress for lead character Jodie in BEYOND: Two Souls in 2013. Page co-starred in the game with Willem Defoe.
Kristen Bell looked strikingly similar to her character Lucy in the first two installments of the Assassin's Creed franchise.
Mark Hamill brought a new side to The Joker with his iconic take on the character. He's been doing it for many years and fans were thrilled to see him return for Batman: Arkham City in 2011.
The Grand Theft Auto franchise is notoriously full of celebrity voices. Ray Liotta was perhaps the most prominent, voicing lead character Tommy Vercetti in Vice City. He was joined by William Fichtner, Dennis Hopper, Burt Reynolds, Danny Trejo and Garey Busey in the game. Nickelodeon star Danny Tamberelli (remember him?) voiced everyone's least favorite character, James "Jimmy" De Santa in GTA V.
Haley Joel Osment
Haley Joel Osment lent his voice to the widely popular video game series, Kingdom Hearts, as the main protagonist Sora. Mandy Moore and Hayden Panettiere also provided voices in the game.
Aside from a busy acting career, Elijah Wood has been lending his voice to video games for years including Happy Feet, Lord of the Rings, and our favorite purple dragon Spyro.
Thank goodness his glorious voice was not wasted. Liam Neeson lent his talents to lead character James in Fallout 3 back in 2008.
Here’s one to really look forward to: Kevin Spacey will not only provide his voice, but his likeness to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
this coming fall.
