10 Celebrities Making Appearances Video Games

It’s always fun to see something out of the ordinary when you’re playing a video game.    Most times it comes in the forms of funny songs or a game glitch you didn’t expect.   And sometimes the game will toss in a celebrity which might throw you off (meaning a good thing).

But here I wanted to focus on celebrities who appeared in games that weren’t so obvious.  Games that didn’t really have a celebrity focus yet a celebrity appeared in that seemed almost random.

Here are 10 that I enjoyed the most….

Snoop Dogg

Appears in True Crime Streets in LA and Def Jam:  Fight for NY.  How this guy isn’t in Grand Theft Auto is beyond me.   Yes it’s a gangster stereotype but come on.   Don’t you think at some point he should have been sitting smoking a J on a corner somewhere?

Ozzy Osbourne

Appears in Brutal Legends and Guitar Hero: World Tour.  I think it’s safe to say I like Ozzy in just about anything let alone a video game.

Sonja Kinski

Appears in Left 4 Dead. Sonja’s not a mega celebrity but she’s extremely gorgeous.  So it’s nice to see her in a real game that has nothing to do with celebrities or being gorgeous.

Vin Diesel

Appears in Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, and Wheelman.  See?  At least it’s not just Riddick.  He made it to another game.   I’m surprised they haven’t made an XXX game yet.

Gary Coleman

Appears in Postal 2.   It’s a shame that Coleman has passed away because I would have loved seeing him in more game.

  1. So, focusing on celebrities that appear in games where it isn’t obvious they’d appear, you picked Vin Diesel, who was Riddick in the movies and Bruce Lee appearing in two games named after him. Wouldn’t it be more surprising if those celebrities weren’t in those games?

  2. @SilentJee I second that motion

    It was cool to see Jean Reno in Onimusha 3…though I don’t know if that was for marketing purposes or just to allow him to be a bad-ass in a virtual world. Still awesome.

  3. I guess everyone here forgot “Armageddon” with Bruce Willis. 1998-ish, Playstation. You played the game AS BRUCE WILLIS. Not as John Mclane, AS BRUCE WILLIS!! YIPPIE-KI-YAY MOTHAFUCKAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!

  4. one that the original list missed: Sam Witwer of Being Human(US), Battlestar Galactica, and Dark Angel.
    He is the face and voice of Starkiller from Force Unleashed.

  5. I absolutely agree Alex. Burt Reynolds in Saints Row 3 is the best celebrity cameo I’ve seen in any medium, let alone games, followed closely by his cameo in Archer. Now, I don’t have a man-crush on Burt, I’ve never even seen any of the movies he’s been in, but both of those cameos were completely out of left field and absolutely f*cking amazing. He has solidified his crown as biggest BAMF out there.

  6. Bruce Lee IS in every matial arts video game in existence. Just under pseudonyms like Marshall/Forest Law, Fei Long, Jann Lee, Maxi, etc.
