Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

May 22, 2009 -

Fallout 3 was maybe the best game of 2008. Could an appearance by Bill Clinton have made it even more memorable?

In an interview with Edge Online, Lev Chapelsky, general manager of Blindlight, a Hollywood-based firm which connects actors, writers and musicians with game projects, mentions that he tried to recruit the former president for voice work in Bethesda's best-selling action/RPG:

Celebrity acquisition applies not just to celebrity actors but to sports figures, politicians – we’ve made offers to Bill Clinton for videogames and gotten great responses with attorneys who have said, ‘The former president will not participate in one of your videogame products, thank you very much’...

What project did you ask Bill Clinton for?

 

I think that might have been to play the president in Fallout 3. Wouldn’t that have been brilliant? You get to that point in game and you hear that voice in the ether coming from off-camera and you’re like, ‘I know that guy!’

Al Gore would have done it

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

Of course he would, he's a massive attention whore/liar. 

Of course, his version would've been terrible compared to what the computer ACTUALLY sounded like and said, because Al Gore would've probably gone on a rant about creating the internet and winning a nobel prize (so Gore and Arafat have something else in common!), instead of reading the actual script.

Bill Clinton's voice, coming from a computer, would've sounded strange to me, personally.  But it would've helped to push me towards talking that big-ass computer into frying itself.

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

Al Gore lent his voice to Futurama. He's okay in my book.

Having Bill Clinton in Fallout certainly would have been pretty cool.

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

He's also a liar and a hypocrite.  So if you're cool with that, whatever.

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

He's also ridden the Moon Worm. I'm okay with that too.

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

Or so he says...

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

So he's different from any other politician HOW, exactly?

Oh, that's right, he's a liberal. Get the rope, Billy-Bob!

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

That and he's manipulating the scientific community and the academic communities so he can make himself rich.  Oh, and he's a smug motherfucker, don't forget that.

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

Al Gore doll: "You are hearing me talk."

I know that was the Simpsons, and not Futurama.

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

I doubt Mr Clinton was even apoproached with it, the attorneys likely made that decision themselves.

Re: Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

Man, if they'd managed that I'd have bought Fallout 3 immediately, just for the awesome.

It would have been interesting but I'd hate to have lost malcolm mcdowell

WonderkarpI'd love a real Conker. the Project Spark thing I am looking at. If they provide atleast 25 hours of original conker crazyness that I dont have to build.....05/29/2015 - 7:55pm
Matthew WilsonI think he was talking about wanting a real one.05/29/2015 - 7:19pm
Andrew EisenKarp - A real Conker game or are you content with that Project Spark thing?05/29/2015 - 7:18pm
Matthew Wilson if they are smart, they hire Hideo Kojima, give him his own studio, and rebew the partnership with Guillermo del Toro.05/29/2015 - 7:04pm
MattsworknameReally hope silent hills gets made, it really deserves to be released, and konami is being stupid riht now so if MS wants to take it, more power to them.05/29/2015 - 6:32pm
Wonderkarp80% complete? Well. If there was ever a reason to make me buy a Xbone, that would be it. That and Conker05/29/2015 - 5:24pm
Matthew Wilsonif true, a very smart move.05/29/2015 - 5:24pm

WonderkarpRegion locking annoys me. I cant tell you how many Japanese games I want to to play but need to own another console and learn japanese to play them!05/29/2015 - 5:13pm
MattsworknameThis kinda thing is why I have a very negitive view on things like region locking and games not being released universially. it creates problems like this where the game gets reduced as a result .05/29/2015 - 4:41pm
Andrew EisenNeither will the 3DS. Wait, WHAT?! http://www.siliconera.com/2015/05/28/samurai-warriors-chronicles-3-does-not-include-nintendo-costumes-in-the-west/05/29/2015 - 4:33pm
Andrew EisenSamurai Warriors Chronicles 3 will not include the Nintendo-themed costumes when it hits the Vita in NA and EU next month.05/29/2015 - 4:32pm
Wonderkarpthe brilliance of the Wii U is they could offer 2 games in 1 package. Tablet/pro controller controls, and then a flipped game with WiiMote. Add a master quest too it too05/29/2015 - 4:18pm
Andrew EisenTwilight Princess would be my favorite if it didn't have a few notable design issues. But yeah, those few things aside, it absolutely trumps Ocarina in most every way.05/29/2015 - 4:11pm
WonderkarpTwilight Princess is my favorite Zelda. Its a legit sequal to Ocarina, enhancing everything Ocarina had, and I hope there's a HD Remaster with gamecube controls. Make it Nintendur!05/29/2015 - 4:08pm
E. Zachary KnightI borrowed Wario World, Ocarina of Time and Twilight Princess. So I am going to try to play at least one of them this weekend.05/29/2015 - 3:52pm
MattsworknameIm gonna be splittingmy time between blood borne, the witcher 3, tokiden, and some pc games.05/29/2015 - 3:34pm
DocMelonheadIn fact, if the whole campaign is to make fun of Zoe Quinn, Leigh Alexander, and Brianna Wu, then I'm not going to stop them.05/29/2015 - 2:30pm
