Bill Clinton Turned Down Voice-over Role in Fallout 3

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!’

    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.

    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.
