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

MaskedPixelantePlus there's the whole "we don't use accounts" thing that means if you lose your 3DS and have to get a new one, you have to deal with Nintendo customer service to get your downloads back instead of, you know, logging in and downloading them.09/22/2014 - 8:39pm
MonteIndeed. Their wallet system, the lack of sales, applying tax, the lack of price cuts, the eshop is pretty terrible. Only use it for indie games.09/22/2014 - 8:29pm
Andrew EisenThat's the one I'm eyeballing. Really dug the demo. Didn't care as much for EOIV though.09/22/2014 - 8:19pm
MaskedPixelanteOoh, an Atlus sale, it must be a day that ends in "y". I'd much rather get physical 3DS games because of Nintendo's outdated digital distribution policies, but EOU is near impossible to find anywhere nowadays... conflicted.09/22/2014 - 7:48pm
Andrew EisenOooh, Atlus sale in the 3DS eShop. I might have to bust open my piggy bank. http://www.siliconera.com/2014/09/22/shin-megami-tensei-iv-atlus-games-sale/09/22/2014 - 7:21pm

Andrew EisenWhat did Nintendo do thrice in one game?09/22/2014 - 6:48pm
MaskedPixelanteYou know it's a bogus defense when Nintendo of all companies does it THREE TIMES in one game.09/22/2014 - 6:29pm
E. Zachary KnightIt is stupid that they went with the "It would be too much work to add a woman assassin" defense rather than just being honest and admiting they didn't think about it until it was brought up.09/22/2014 - 6:06pm
E. Zachary KnightYeah, this is a different game and it is not out of the ordinary for them. THey did the same for the pirate one.09/22/2014 - 6:05pm
MaskedPixelanteTurns out it's less "impossible", more "part of the season pass, but only in an exclusive game that's separate from ACU proper".09/22/2014 - 6:01pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/09/22/assassins-creed-unitys-season-pass-includes-game-set-in-china/ Remember how Ubisoft said it was impossible to have playable females in Assassin's Creed Unity?09/22/2014 - 5:59pm
ZippyDSMleeIf publishers didn't play the region lock game then it would not be an issue.Tho I have seen more russian/chec games than asia ones on ebay.If they do not like it then mabye lower thier region prices to make alitte vrs none.09/22/2014 - 9:54am
