The stars behind gaming's voices

Game: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Star: Ray Liotta
Famous for: Goodfellas
Also starring: Dennis Hopper, Burt Reynolds, Deborah Harry

The GTA cast list reads like a who's who of film and music talent. Casting Ray Liotta (best known for his role in Muppets from Space... oh, and something called Goodfellas) as Tommy Vercetti was a masterstroke, raising the bar for not only cut-scene quality, but also production values in games as a whole. The trend continued with San Andreas, with Samual L. Jackson and Ice-T among the cast. Obviously when you've got as much money from wild sales success as Rockstar and a game so popular everyone and his dog wants to be in it, getting talent like this on board is easy. But very much worth the effort, we're sure you'll agree.
