Famous Hollywood Actors In Video Games

Written by Alexis

Cinematography and video game industry have been cooperating for decades. And if the cooperation in the early 80s was limited to the release of arcades and video games based on popular movies (such as Tron by Walt Disney or Steven Spielberg’s Alien), then later actors began to appear in specially filmed FMV-videos (say, in Command & Conquer or Wing Commander) and voice characters. Developers were also often inspired by the looks of famous people to create playable and AI-driven characters.

Over time, motion capture (Yabl) technology has made it possible to literally digitize acting. Modern computer graphics can transmit gestures, movements and facial expressions to a real person.

All of this has led to the fact that now you can see more and more Hollywood stars in games. The capitalization of gaming companies continues to rise, and big budgets allow for familiar faces to be brought in for even bigger profits.

Because of this, almost all popular casinos like casino Grand Rush can’t pass up the chance to introduce such video games among their range of entertainment. They even present entire sections of such “star” games that deserve the attention of their users. 

We offer you the most popular video games, where the prototypes are your favorite Hollywood stars.

Although there is no Hollywood actor involved, the main character of the game is the world famous American rapper 50 Cent. It is worth paying attention to the interesting plot of the game and trying it out.

The Wheelman

The prototype of the game was the famous American actor Vin Diesel. This game has everything you need – a lot of action, racing, gangster action and unbelievable adventures.

Rock Band

This is a famous series of games with musical themes. It has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. The video game features 45 songs and the legendary Beatles. 

Sleeping Dogs

Though she is not heavily involved in the game’s plot, you can find the much-loved actress Emma Watson here. The game is also special because this is the unique time when the actress takes part in the adaptation of the video game.

New Vegas

Matthew Perry is the well-known actor from “Friends” who lent his voice and part of his appearance to the game’s character, The Courier. You can also hear the characters voiced by Ron Perlman (the narrator, saying the iconic “War never changes”), Zachary Levi and Danny Trejo in New Vegas.

Call of Duty

It’s hugely popular among players all over the world. Since 2003, Activision has released a new part of this linear shooter almost every year.

In 2014, the eleventh game of the series Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare was released, the action of which unfolds in the near future – the middle of the XXI century. This time, we play under an ordinary private American army, and the world’s evil is represented by the American Jonathan Irons, the owner of a private military company. His role was played by Kevin Spacey, a two-time Oscar winner. At the time, the actor had not yet been accused of sexual harassment and his career was once again rapidly going up after the Netflix series “House of Cards.”


Halo is a shooter game series for Xbox consoles from Microsoft and Windows. The first game in the series came out in 2001 and became a “driving force” for a new player in the console market, Microsoft. In nearly 20 years, the game has grown into a huge media franchise that includes games, anime, short films and books. It is based on a future conflict between humans and the Covenant, a union of alien forces.

You can read about serial actor Nathan Fillion at and he first appeared in the 2009 Halo 3: ODST series. He voiced sergeant Edward Buck. By this time, he was already known to geeks from the cult sci-fi series “Firefly.” The actor had also played in “Buff,” “Castle” and other popular series. In 2016, Nathan returned to the role of Edward Buck in Halo 5, already fully endowing the character with his voice and movements.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater

The first part of the game saw the world in 1999 (in 2015, the last series of the game was released). Now gamers can test 10 main parts of the sequel. In addition to the main character, skateboarder Hawk, players have the opportunity to try on the images of famous personalities such as Rodney Mullen or Tony Alva.

Beyond: Two Souls

Already mentioned “motion catching” technology is ideal for creating games similar to an interactive movie. Max Bet makes reviews of the best slots with such visual content. The French studio Quantic Dream and its head David De Gruttolya, better known under the pseudonym David Cage, reign supreme in this field.

Cyberpunk 2077

A favorite of the Internet, the meme Keanu Reeves, became famous in the late 80s thanks to teen comedies about the adventures of Bill and Ted, and finally became a star thanks to the cyberpunk trilogy “The Matrix”. After that, the actor did not return to science fiction, but he did not disappear from the radar altogether.

In June 2019, the actor unexpectedly appeared on stage at the E3 game show and announced that Polish studio CD Projekt RED had brought him to work on the game Cyberpunk 2077. Keanu played Johnny Silverhand, one of the non-player characters, the leader of the rock band Samurai. 

Cyberpunk 2077 is a cross-platform game based on the board game Cyberpunk 2020. The developers promise an open game world and a non-linear story.
