10 Celebrities Pointlessly Cast In Video Games

Sometimes your reputation can precede you, and not in a good way.

Much like film and television cameos, it's always fun to rack your brains at "who the famous person is".

Hearing a familiar voice can always bolster your enthusiasm for a game, as well as draw in more potential players if there's a famous name attached. But what if it's a bit, well, naff?

What if the star appeal is a bit of a damp squib, giving performances that your average high school drama production could beat? Mortal Kombat 11 may be a corker of a game, but star draw Ronda Rousey's flat performance hasn't wowed fans with her turn at voice acting.

You'd think that having Jean Luc Picard, Oskar Schindler and Chandler Bing on your role call would be an amazing event too, or recruiting some top models and rock n' roll stars would do the trick.

Sadly, not all that glitters is gold, as some of these performances went on to show. Having the budget to hire big names doesn't always mean you'll get big talent.

So brace yourself, as we look at some of gaming's most pointlessly cast celebrities.
