The "Too important for this game" club

#1 Edited by President_Barackbar (3440 posts) -

In the tradition of snagging a famous actor to do a totally one-off character to be dispatched by the end of the intro,  started in Oblivion with Patrick Stewart and continued in FO3 With Liam Neeson, who do you think will be the next actor to join this club?
 
EDIT: In case this was not clear in the OP, I am referring to Skyrim.

I love how you just altered the role of Mr. Goldblum to fit the now correct topic. After doing some thinking, I think it should be John Rhys-Davies doing his Gimli voice.

Liam Neeson's character was featured pretty heavily in Fallout 3, actually.

My almanac tells me it's going to be Max von Sydow. Plus I thought it was pretty clear after the teaser trailer.

Heh, That would be pretty funny, would make me lose any respect for the game from the get go though.

I wouldn't exactly call him a big star to Americans at least.

Perhaps but he brings the same vocal gravitas that Stewart and Neeson did. Besides, I don't expect Bethesda to use their introductory character in the same throwaway fashion as their last two games. It was one of the complains everyone had about their voice cast. I'm an optimist :)

Also I want Sean Connery to come out of retirement specifically to reprise his role as Draco.

I'd like to see some Sir Ian McKellen in the future.

#42 Posted by Subjugation (4718 posts) -

Justin Bieber. Then the game will reap massive sales from the uneducated masses we call teenage girls.
