Many beloved actors have lent their voices to the God of War video game series – ‘NCIS’ star Linda Hunt has narrated throughout the series, and the late Michael Clarke Duncan played the titan Atlas in God of War 2. Though the one celeb cameo in the video game franchise that gave us a pleasant shock was Rip Torn’s run as Hephaestus in God of War 3.

As Kratos (aka the "Ghost of Sparta") seeks to take down the Olympian Gods once and for all with help from Pandora, Hephaestus plays a key role in the game as both Pandora's father/creator and the immortal smith who makes a weapon capable of destroying Zeus.
