My favorite unknown was Wayne Newton "Mr. New Vegas" in Fallout New Vegas. Classic!

Bethesda do really well with voice overs. They clearly recognise the importance. One of favourites in new Vegas is Victor the robot. Came across as a really genuine bloke.

Can't believe that was Liam neeson!

Neither could I! He even looks like Neeson and it still took me ages to place the voice. Makes for a great character though.
