It's funny you say that. (Destiny)

Dinklage is a great example of casting a name, not a performance, IMO. He's pretty Cousin Oliver to me. He didn't do much VO work, but is a hot commodity right now, so they got him. Nolan North is known to basically nobody except us self aware video game nerds. My friend plays games every day but doesn't visit forums much or follow news. I explained to him the Keith David joke from Saint's Row, then told him about Baker and North. These guys are hired because they have voiceover talent. They are purely hired for skill and familiarity with the process, definitely not for publicity, which is what the jumping the shark thing is about. I don't think I could say the same about Peter Dinklage.
