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

Big PermI definitely agree that yes, the titles alone were meant to provoke people who identify as gamers. It also worked07/31/2015 - 12:59pm
Infophile@Matt: I'm talking about people I've seen on this site arguing that the title alone justified the reaction to the article, that it was deliberately offensive. Not even a new YouTube video by a risen-from-the-dead Albert Einstein would change that.07/31/2015 - 12:52pm
Big PermI just didn't care for the wording. I don't think it should be changed or anything.07/31/2015 - 12:46pm
james_fudgeIf I am misunderstanding your point expand on it in the comments and i'll talk about it in there.07/31/2015 - 12:23pm
james_fudgeIt's clearly part of a broader internal fight against people like Sargon.07/31/2015 - 12:21pm
james_fudgeBig perm: fair point. On the other hand that's its origins and not saying that in some way would be a disservice to our readers07/31/2015 - 12:21pm
Andrew EisenMatt - What is the argument that Sargon supposedly debunked?07/31/2015 - 12:06pm
Big PermThat said, I don't think it's a shit article.07/31/2015 - 11:22am
Big PermNot really a fan of "one individual aligned with Gamer Gate attempted to shame a prominent figure within its own ranks". It should be encouraged that we call out hipocracy, and instead I feel that shines a negative light on such a thing.07/31/2015 - 11:21am
james_fudgeI'm curious what our GG-aligned readers think of our Necromancer story? Was it fair? Unfair?07/31/2015 - 11:11am
E. Zachary KnightMatt, That the whole stink over the articles is a bunch of BS? Because that is the only part that is BS.07/31/2015 - 8:29am
MattsworknameOh btw, info, are you still refering to that "gamers are dead" argument? Cause sargon of akkad just did a 3 video series that proves it's based on bullshit07/31/2015 - 6:46am
MattsworknameInfo: thats what you call clickbaiting to the highest level07/31/2015 - 5:43am
InfophileAnd here's why you never judge an article by its title: "Microsoft Gives All Windows 10 Users the Finger" - http://www.themarysue.com/microsoft-windows-10-middle-finger/ (I'm looking at you, people still mad about "Gamers are Dead")07/31/2015 - 5:09am
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2015-07-31/khan-academy-s-sal-khan-studio-1-0-full-show-7-30- not game related, but this is a good interview.07/30/2015 - 8:52pm
Goth_SkunkFinally, I never misspelled Chipman's name. So, feel free to try your luck again, but pick an opponent you can beat.07/30/2015 - 8:32pm
Goth_Skunk@Technogeek: I paid for the experience of the seat, and upon completion of the movie determined that the extra for the seat wasn't worth it. Additionally, your opinion is not law. You thinking the movie is crap does not make it so.07/30/2015 - 8:31pm
Craig R.1st I heard of Pixels was seeing trailer in theater. Was interested until Sandler appeared, then it became an instant 'Nope'.07/30/2015 - 4:52pm
james_fudgesick burns are not always allowed in the shoutbox.07/30/2015 - 4:28pm
MechaCrashIt's especially funny because I said "you'd have to be a moron to enjoy it," and Goth boasted about enjoying it, as if that does anything to change my opinion of the movie or of him.07/30/2015 - 4:19pm
