Video games have come a long way from the beeps, boinks and generic voices of yesteryear. Today, they’re immersive stories, with cut scenes, fleshed-out characters and the occasional celebrity cameo or two. While most games rely on a stable of voice over actors that seldom step in front of a camera, some games bring in a ringer or two to jazz up an experience and get a true thespian performance going. Sometimes, it’s a franchise character we’ve seen before, where their look is set. Other times, not only did the celebrity provide a voice, but also the motion capture and physical model for the character, to bring them to life.
