The Five Celebrities Id Like To See Appear In Video Games

It's no secret that everyone likes to keep up to speed and enjoys seeing celebrities in video games. The entertainment this alone provides is enough when they appear on television shows or in some cases movies. However, there have been instances where celebrities have appeared in video games be in voice-overs or direct appearances like Snopp Dog in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and voice acting in GTA V for example. Currently, some celebrities are on many tv shows and movies but have not yet appeared in video games which should rightfully do so. Here is my top ten list of Celebrities which I think should be in a video game.

Billie Piper

When you go and look into Billie Pipers accomplishments and look at the tv shows, movies she has done you will also see that Billie has gained a very impressive set of accomplishments in the tv industry, movie industry, and pop industry. She was in fact quite popular during her days in the pop industry and managed to secure 5 awards 4 within the same year. Adding to this if you look at what she has accomplished in the film and tv industry she has won and been nominated for a total of 70 recognized awards. The recent charity work she has actually done and previous work in the past has not been matched by any individual to date and shows that Billie should indeed be included in a video game as a voice actor at the very least..She has earned two Laurence Olivier Award nominations, winning one for her performance in Yerma. She is the only female actor to have won all six of the currently available UK Theatre Best Actress awards for a single performance. It is for these reasons that I feel BIllie should be included as a voice actor for a few video games as she is well deserving of this opportunity.

David Tennant

Anyone who is familiar with David Tennant should no doubt agree that he is by far one of the best actors and greatest people to of ever played the doctor on Dr Who alone. Adding to all of this he has done so much work outside of Dr who and accomplished a lot to numerous to actually list. Davids acting has earned him a tremendous fan base and he has made even the biggest skeptics acknowledge him to be gifted. David I feel would be worthy of being in a few video games as a voice actor and perhaps a dr who video game would be a great way to utilize his talents.

Ali G

Anyone who has watched this celebrity will know just how funny and entertaining he is. ALi G has done a tremendous amount for the comedy he has done and one of his movies was actually quite successful. He had a show on channel 4 UK that had a good run and did not disappoint. The fact Ali G has a big enough fanbase supporting him would be enough to qualify him to appear as a voice actor in any video game.

Joe Pesci and Robert Deniro

These two celebrities together in any Mafia video game or video game based on movies these two have done together would immediately ensure a guaranteed hit video game. If you look into there movie accomplishments together these alone justify them being in any video game as voice actors. Goodfellas or Casino could be made into new video games and with these two included you know fans of those movies and their fanbase would buy the video game. When you have two highly talented movie actors in one video game combined with how well these two gifted actors work well together you know it would be one epic game to have. Considering the next generation of gaming systems is here it wouldn't be to hard to get some great games made with these two involved. I'm sure these two would be happy to do voice acting especially in a video game industry that is a multi-billion dollar/pound industry and is a guaranteed money maker. Also, other movies could be made into games after the success of games involving these two actors.

Many more celebrities should appear as voice actors in video games but are to numerous to list and with the above list you can at least agree that these five should at least be in a video game by now.

There have been Doctor Who games featuring Tennant and Piper (or at least their roles, I forget if they actually did any voice work for them).

Ali G isn't an actor.

Reads like a spammy post for hits on youtube videos

Any post which praises Billie Piper i just cant take seriously. Surely no normal person here was a fan of her pop career ?

I'd love Alex Jones to be the voice of the Doom Guy. The youtube vids of this people have made are pretty funny.

Decent voice actors are always welcome. Off the top of my head Paul Darrow, Tom Baker, Bruce Campbell, Jon Pertwee, Tony Robinson and Eric Idle have all done voice acting for videogames. It really does make a difference; the new Monkey Island games put me off for the voice acting.

Eric Idle was Rincewind in Discworld and there was also another celebrity who did the voice of the beggar on the streets as well that kept saying arms for the poor which was Tony Robinson. Great game that Discworld though PS1 classic for sure.

Didnt think id get a few comments on this thread but meh nice to see a few responces.
