Poker Night 3 - Fantasy Casting Thread

posted by BrianBoyko on - last edited - Viewed by 8.1K users

Howdy. Just thought there might be some interesting places to mine for characters for Poker Night 3.

For example: Farscape. You could get the licence from Channel 9, it's famous enough to be known, obscure enough that the licence is available. Scorpius, Rygel, & Chiana, I think, would make the best choice of players.

From the Valve stable, I'm thinking Dr. Kleiner.

From Adult Swim/Williams St: Nathan Explosion, Master Shake, Cheryl Tunt (from Archer), BraK.

Miscellaneous: Pearl Forrester or Tom Servo from MST3K, Dark Helmet from Spaceballs... Elvira...

and finally...

Tommy Wiseau. As himself.

  • Let's see what I can offer here...

    Manny Calavera (Grim Fandango)- A classicly iconic character of the point-n-click era with sthe potential for some strong dialogue potential.
    TF2 Unlock: Department of Death Scythe - Demoman
    Cameo: Domino Hurley

    HK-47 (KotoR)- A solidly constructed, hilarious character that would open up a lot of interesting dialogue options through the game. Aggressive and hostile to other players.
    TF2 Unlock: Droid Assassin Rifle - Sniper
    Cameo: Ebon Hawk

    Professor Layton (Professor Layton)- Gentlemen. Scholar. Here to play poker. Layton is one of those interesting, dialogue heavy characters that would adapt great for a game like this.
    TF2 Unlock: Gentleman's Tophat - Spy

    Taronga Leela (Futurama)- One of the stronger characters in the animated scene right now, Leela is very iconic, likable, and has a lot of potential for dialogue between other characters.
    TF2 Unlock: Hero's Hairpiece - Pyro
    Cameo: Zapp Brannigan


    And finally.... the host of tonight's proceedings....
    The Dealer
    Dr. 'Eggman' Robotnik (Sonic the Hedgehog)- The doctor is in. Robotnik is one of those super iconic video game characters that's gotten to the point where it wouldn't be odd for him to appear without his protagonist, and he's not entirely evil enough for him to not be welcome at the inventory. His gadgets and flying cart allow him to scoot in and out of the scene smoothly.
    TF2 Unlock: Maniac's Moustache - Medic (Adds a Robotnik Nose + Moustache)

  • One of my Poker Night fanarts on dA has gotten a bunch of comments asking me about the next Homestar Runner cameo, and I feel bad that I can't answer anyone beyond "this is what I heard Matt Chapman was working on, and this is what he said on his Twitter". I'm not employed with either Telltale or the Chapman Bros., so unless it's posted on a social network site, I'm not really sure. I have zero insider info.

    I did say though who I felt would be the best or my favorite characters to cameo, though.

  • My picks would be
    One of the bots from mst3k
    The Sniper (I can already hear him getting a bad card during a showdown. "Ah, Piss")
    Roman Bellic
    Gary Smith (from Bully)
    and The Joker as the dealer.

  • Oh I am TOTALLY in favor of Tom Servo, there! Good suggestion!

    I am dying to see Peacock from Skullgirls in it. She's such a whacky character she would fit in as a suitable replacement for max, or even as a game host!
