The "Too important for this game" club

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.

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 :)

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