Video games have certainly come a long way since The Legend of Zelda or Super Mario Bros., where the story could only be told through text boxes and in instruction booklets.

With these higher production values mirroring Hollywood productions, it was only a matter of time before famous Hollywood talents became involved with video game development. Some, like horror legend John Carpenter and British actor Andy Serkis, have helped in the development of the story and the plot of their games, while others like Steven Spielberg, have worked on the creative process of a video game from concept to completion.

There has definitely been a rise in the market and opportunity for famous Hollywood actors to lend their voice talents to big budget video game projects. Gary Oldman, Ed Harris, and Sam Worthington, for example, have acted in Call of Duty: Black Ops game, while Ellen Page lent her voice and visage to David Cage’s Beyond: Two Souls. These are only two examples in a list that is dozens of entries long.

Let’s take a look at some big name actors who will lend their talents to upcoming video games.
