I'd say Ron Perlman possibly nicks this due to his VOICE being used in almost every game currently released. Granted, you rarely actually see him, but one sniff of that voice and you KNOW it's Ronnie.

No 'cheating' at all, there, big Johnny M. is also quite a prolific movie/TV director in his days away from the iron grid, a bit of a renaissance man. Looks a bit different to how I remember him, mind, must be the botox:

Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker - think about it, they were in all six films so they're also in the games based on episodes I - III.

I remember Arnie saying how awesome the T3: Rise of the Machines game was on some DVD or other game extras.

For me, it has to be Arnie, his image/likeness has been used in so many of his film licensed games over the years.

The Terminator series has had tons of direct film licences and spinoffs on many formats, Predator 1 and 2 has games, True Lies, Last Action Hero, Total Recall.

In the same sense as Vinnie Jones, is it perhaps a bit of a cheat to include The Rock for all the wrestling games he's been in? Or would he only count if they turned his movies into games?

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the omnipresence that is Cam Clarke. The voice of "Akira"'s Kaneda,"TMNT"'s Leonardo, as well as many, many characters in games.

About bloody time somebody mentioned him! Failing that Crispin Freeman has cropped up in quite a few games!
