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

TechnogeekBest case, it was some marketing douchebag who thought they could pander to both sides at once.03/06/2015 - 12:49am
TechnogeekAlso, this was the mistake tweet: http://i.imgur.com/4eLWNHx.jpg03/06/2015 - 12:48am
TechnogeekBecause nothing says "open, diverse gaming community" like buddying up with Breitbart.03/06/2015 - 12:47am
Papa MidnightAndrew Eisen, I believe this is the picture that you seek: http://i.imgur.com/Gdk60pa.jpg03/06/2015 - 12:30am
Papa MidnightSurely, Goth_Skunk, you say that in jest?03/06/2015 - 12:28am
prh99Craig R. Cause quite a few of them are not, they're bullies with different politics.03/06/2015 - 12:23am
MechaTama31What was the "mistake" tweet?03/06/2015 - 12:18am
MechaCrashWhatever you say, Goth.03/06/2015 - 12:02am
E. Zachary KnightGoth, they could have fooled me.03/05/2015 - 11:16pm
Goth_SkunkI don't understand. GamerGate supports an open, diverse gaming community for all as well. Google's statement is contradictory.03/05/2015 - 10:59pm
TechnogeekAnd as far as the Card thing went, I basically balanced it out personal guilt-wise by donating an amount equal to the Shadow Complex purchase price to the ACLU.03/05/2015 - 9:44pm
TechnogeekWelp, look like the Gerberghazi crowd is going to have to use Bing now. https://twitter.com/googlecloud/status/57365320825126093003/05/2015 - 9:42pm
Goth_SkunkAhh! I misinterpreted your statement about being left with almost every game in existence. I interpreted it as 'If you boycott games he's been involved with, you're boycotting almost all of them.'03/05/2015 - 9:31pm
Andrew EisenGoth - Card has been involved with only a small handful of games so if one were to boycott games for his involvement, they wouldn't be missing out on many games.03/05/2015 - 9:29pm
Goth_Skunk@Craig: Only if you're not interested in seeing it end.03/05/2015 - 9:27pm
Craig R.Instead of calling people the "anti gamergate faction", you could just call them "sane"03/05/2015 - 9:23pm
Goth_SkunkWhat do you mean 'almost every game in existence'? Card is a writer, not a game developer.03/05/2015 - 9:18pm
Andrew EisenBut I too wonder how many people who cry boycott actually follow through. I vaguely remember a few years ago a bunch of people boycotting one of the CoD games and were all found playing it on Steam.03/05/2015 - 7:53pm
Andrew EisenAn interesting quandary but not equivalent as boycotting games that Card was involved with leaves you with... well, almost every game in existence.03/05/2015 - 7:51pm
