    Default Characters in games who look like celebrities (by "coincidence")

    All right, we know the lengths game companies have gone to make there characters more strongly resemble the famous actors playing them (i.e. Keanu, Arnold, the Rock, Gackt, etc.)

    However, some games have characters that resemble completely different actors for no readily viable reason (other than that the concept is "cool", I guess).

    I haven't actually noticed much of this over the years but I noticed it in Injustice 2 (Catwoman looks like Alyssa Milano, Poison Ivy looks like Nicole Kidman) and more recently Final Fantasy VII Remake (Biggs looks like Charlie Sheen).

    So yeah, that's the topic. What characters can you name who look like celebs? DON'T list characters that were deliberately modeled after their voice-actor. However, feel free to list actors who remarkably resemble famous game characters (preferably, ones who have not yet portrayed them at all).

    the only one i can think of is Ellie from the Last of Us (Ellen Page) but only because she made a big fuss about it.

    Always felt like the people who said Tidus looks like Meg Ryan were onto something. Likewise, the choice for Angelina Jolie to play the liveaction Lara Croft made a lot of sense given their similar appearance (which I believe was incidental?).

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.
    Trying to catch me riding dirty.

    ugh, i never liked Angelina a Lara.. i just dont like her (i dont know why)


    Nathan Fillion - Nathan Drake.
    But i heard that Drake was actually based on Fillion likeness so if that is true then it doesnt count.

    from the first time i saw the protaginist of COD- Infinity warfare (Nick Reyes) i called him young Scott Bakula and for the rest of the campaign i could not see otherwise.

    Personally, I approve Alicia Vikander.

    I... had not heard this.

    i have not bothered to watch that reboot, but it would no doubt be a step up from AJ.
    I didnt like the Square Enix reboot of the games so a movie based on that doesnt really appeal to me.

    also: for those who havent seen it yet:


    when i first watched this i almost searched for my controller at 11:00
