The video game industry does not usually promote a lot of the voice over actors. This is why many actors can get away with video game voices without anyone really noticing. When looking through video game credits, there are often a lot of surprising names that pop up.
Check out some of the most famous actors who have voiced video game characters.
Many know him as Luke Skywalker, but diehard Batman fans prefer him as the role of The Joker. Hamill started out voicing The Joker on cartoons, but he quickly transitioned into the world of Batman video games.
Some of his most recent roles include The Joker in Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. You will easily recognize his trademark laugh as you play the game.
Green is used to voicing characters on Family Guy, so it was a natural fit for him to do video games too. Aside from the Family Guy game, Green has a pretty big role in the Mass Effect series.
Green voices the role of Jeff “Joker” Moreau in the series. Once you hear the voice again, you’ll instantly know it’s him.
Samuel L. Jackson
