Chattycast 89: Thanks, Hollyweird

We hobknob with La-La Land as they invade our personal space.


Quantum Break launches this week, marking an unprecedented step toward merging passive entertainment media with video games. To that end, Remedy used several recognizable real-life actors, and the distinction between the in-engine cutscenes and FMV episodes is starting to get blurry. That means we're bound to see more crossover between Hollywood and the games industry. 

This week, we talk all about entertainment crossover. From Mark Hamill in Wing Commander to Patrick Stewart in any game that needs British gravitas, we'll discuss the state of Hollywood actors appearing in games. What does this mean for dedicated video game voice talent? Does seeing a recognizable face take you out of the experience? Do you want to see more game-show hybrids like Quantum Break?
