We were all blown away with the announcement that Kevin Spacey will play the lead antagonist in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. If blockbuster actors turn their "golden gaze" to video games, it could spark worldwide interest in the medium. The Elder Scrolls Online features a list of actors doing voice acting with the likes of  Kate Beckinsale and Bill Nighy. Big names in video games are however not something new, PlayStation Access did a video listing nine actors/actresses who featured in a game but which you probably didn't know about. Number 10 on the list is not in the video, but she definitely deserves a mention.

  1. Destiny with Peter Hayden Dinklage, better known as "the Imp" Tyrion Lannister, from Game of Thrones
  2. The Kingdom Heart series with Hayden Panettiere, better known as the "Cheerleader" Claire Bennet, from Heroes
  3. Onimusha 3 with Jean Reno from The Professional and Ronin
  4. The Elder Scrolls Oblivion with Sean Bean, from Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones
  5. Call of Duty World at War/Black Ops with Gary Oldman from The Fifth Element and The Dark Knight Rises
  6. Dishonored with Susan Sarandon from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Thelma and Louise
  7. Dishonored with Chloe Grace Moretz from the Kick-Ass movies
  8. Fallout 3 with Liam Neeson from Taken and Star Wars
  9. Mass Effect with Martin Sheen from the West Wing and The Amazing Spider-Man
  10. Mass Effect with Carrie-Anne Moss from The Matrix series
