Video Game Celebrity Look-A-Likes: Hot Dudes Edition

Mark Walhberg as "Max Payne"

Now that we’ve witnessed the miracle that is hot female celebrities looking somewhat like rendered video game characters, it’s time to drool over the same phenomenon – only this time with HOT GUYS!

Guys have done pretty well starring as game characters in the past:   Mark Wahlberg was a dead-ringer for Max Payne, Timothy Olyphant definitely resembled Agent 47 in the Hitman movie, and Jamie Foxx is about to play Lynch in an upcoming Kane and Lynch movie even though Kane is white and it makes no sense even though I enjoy Jamie Foxx as an actor.  Wait.  Did I accidentally change the subject?  Whatever.

Time for Video Game Celebrity Look-A-Likes: Hot Dudes Edition!

1. Paul Walker as Commander Shephard (Mass Effect)

Is it possible for one photo to have TOO much sexy?

I chose Paul Walker over Matthew Fox on this one, even though Matthew voices Commander Shephard and everyone says the resemblance is pretty spot-on. Nah. Paul’s better.
2. Keanu Reeves as Alan Wake (Alan Wake)

Alan is like Neo with a flashlight! ...Sort of.is like Neo with a flashlight! ...Sort of.

The squinty eyes! The facial hair! The slightly open lips as if they’re both about to say, “I’ve got a bad feeling about this.” Alan is a realistic-looking game character and Keanu is a digital-looking actor! It balances out.

3. Nick Lachey as Nathan Drake (Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune)

Hunks happen.

Nick has never appealed to me, but when comparing him to the gorgeous Nathan Drake suddenly makes him seem ridiculously sexy. It must be that wide-jaw, scruffy, Hollywood bed-head look.
4. Tom Cruise as Dante (Devil May Cry series)

Can you say piercing eyes?

Now THIS is how I like my Tom – the hair, the lips, the eyes. Dante could be the sexiest male game character to ever live; Tommy Boy should be honored to resemble him so closely. If only he had white hair…
5. Vin Diesal as Riddick (Escape from Butcher Bay)

Game technology at its badassiest.

This one is totally cheating because Vin Diesal OWNS the game company that made this game and the character was obviously made to look exactly like him. But goodness GRAY-SHUS look at the resemblance! I love me some Riddick.


6. Hunter Stroud as L (Deathnote, game and TV series)

Now THOSE are some hot, hot emo guys!

DivaJulia’s son, Hunter, is not only an AMAZING musician, but he is also an amazing cosplayer, apparently. I died and went to heaven when I saw this photo! Death Note MOVIE anyone? 🙂  Sidebar:  Hunter wasn’t even trying to look like “L” from Death Note–this photo was taken on set, in between scenes of the indie horror film Cthuluhu.

What do you guys think of these dudes??

Video Game Celebrity Look-A-Likes: Hot Chicks Edition

Angelina as Lara Croft was a GIVEN...

I have a weird fetish fascination with casting video games in my head if ever those games were turned into movies. Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft was a bigger no-brainer than Michael Cera being cast as “an awkward teen looking for love” and Jake Gyllenhaal as the Prince of Persia was, well, ethnically wrong on like eight different levels, but acceptable nonetheless. Video game movies always suck, but I still adore watching the characters I love come to life as real people.

Join me in the silliness with a fun round of Video Game Celebrity Look-A-Likes: Hot Chicks Edition!

1. Selma Blair as Madison Paige (Heavy Rain)

Both girls should be nicknamed "Miss Prissy Lips."

Check out these hot bitches. Selma is gorgeous, Madison is gorgeous.

2. Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck) as Miranda (Mass Effect 2)

Real life or rendered, she is one HOT BITCH.

This match is kind of cheating because sexy Yvonne actually voices the character of Miranda in this game, and obviously they based the facial features on her as well. But still, the resemblance is astounding. Yvonne, guurrl, you should try being a brunette for a while!

3. Silent Hill 2: Cameron Diaz as Maria and Mary-Kate Olsen as Heather

Wait - I can't tell which one is the evil one...
Almost didn't recognize MK without all the hobo clothes, did ya?

These are pretty uncanny. Video game characters these days look like real people IF those real people had something a little weird or “off” about them. In my opinion, Cameron and Mary-Kate are little… “off” themselves, so it works out perfectly! (Yeah, I went there.)

4. Camilla Bell as Rinoa Heartilly (Final Fantasy VIII)


BEAUTIFUL! It’s almost as if Rinoa was based on Camilla.

5. Tina Fey as Bayonetta (Bayonetta)

Tina's inner SUPER HERO!

HA! I had to throw this one in there because it makes me giggle every time. If this doesn’t look like the classic Superman-esque, geeky-girl-turns-into-sexy-super-hero scenario, I don’t know what does. LOVE them both.

And finally… 6. Lisa Foiles (me) as Harley Quinn (Batman: Arkham Asylum)

You guessed it. I AM a super villain.

OKAY, so maybe I don’t look exactly like Harley Quinn from the wildly popular Batman: Arkham Asylum game; maybe I just dressed up like her for Halloween and want to shamelessly put myself in the celebrity category. I’m a freak. Get over it.

The Hottest Female Celebrities… In Video Games

Meet Lisa. Our gorgeous, geeky (psssh) game girl!

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of “girls in video games”?  That’s right – wonderful personalities!

…OR breasts as large as soccer balls and legs longer than Lindsey Lohan’s list of misdemeanors. While that stereotype rings true, there are a few video game females who stick out as classy, ass-kicking, sly bitches who are sexy without being slutty.

Sheva Alomar (Resident Evil 5)

Look at that – is that Beyonce with a gun?  Based on Australian actress Michelle Van der Water, Sheva entered the video game scene last year and brought with her extremely high amounts of Whoop-Ass™. Gorgeous and tough as nails, Sheva was hardly a sidekick – she was Resident Evil 5’s star.

Tanya Adams (Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3)

“WHAAA?” you say?  “That’s not a game character; that’s Jim Carrey’s former lover, Jenny McCarthy!”, you argue? Jenny played Tanya in live-action cutscenes for Red Alert 3, and is definitely considered one of the hottest game characters of all time. Probably because she’s real, and that adds shock value for those basement-dwellers.

Lara Croft (Tomb Raider Series)

Yeah, that’s right. I’m including Lara Croft in this list even though it’s a bigger no-brainer than Meryl Streep winning an Oscar. Honestly, does that woman get nominated just for walking her dog? I bet her dog even has Oscars. I bet her dog is named Oscar.  Anyway, this is the fabulous Lara Croft that will probably be played by Kim Kardashian in a new Tomb Raider movie – a concept that should have Angelina Jolie throwing her children out of windows with rage (but only the expendable ones).

Obviously we all know who should REALLY play a young Lara:   Me.

Yes...that's LISA.

Aya Brea (Parasite Eve Series, The 3rd Birthday)

Look at this hot blonde. It’s like what Hayden Panetierre WISHES she looked like. This girl ain’t no Princess Peach constantly having to be rescued by a dumb plumber – no, this is NYPD cop Aya Brea from Parasite Eve, released in 1998. However, she’s about to make a comeback in The 3rd Birthday, a new installment in the series.  Aya occasionally sees people burst into flames.  Doesn’t everybody?

Joanna Dark (Perfect Dark Series)

Meet Joanna Dark – bounty hunter and snappy dresser.  She first appeared in Perfect Dark (N64), a game heavily influenced by Blade Runner. I personally think Charlize Theron has nothing on this sexy redhead, though that would be some top-notch casting for a Perfect Dark movie, agreed?  It would be like Aeon Flux all over again!  Wait, maybe that’s a bad thing.  See: http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/aeon_flux/)

There you have it – the five hottest bitches in video games. It’s only a matter of time before 3D characters replace living actors, so we should get used to seeing girls like this. But then again, maybe always seeing bodies that cost thousands of dollars to perfect, seductive facial expressions, and cookie-cutter hot girl personalities would get boring after a while.

I mean, isn’t that why no one cares about Megan Fox anymore?

…Too soon?
