It seems even a nuclear blast can't keep celebs from slumming it up in Las Vegas.

Game publisher Bethesda has formally unveiled the cast for their
upcoming post-apocalyptic role-playing epic Fallout: New Vegas, and it
sounds pretty sweet.

Headlining the scene is Mr. Las Vegas himself, Wayne Newton, who
will lend his silky pipes to the role of "Mr. New Vegas," a radio DJ
entertaining the scattered denizens of the Mojave Wasteland.

"I have never been in a video game before and, frankly, have never
played, simply because I have been working my whole life," the 68
year-old Newton told USA Today.

Joining Newton is perhaps the kookiest voice cast ever assembled for
a video game. Ron Perlman ("Hellboy") will play the game's narrator,
Matthew Perry ("Friends") will voice a smooth-talking gangster, and
legendary character actor Danny Trejo will go big as a ghoul named

Other celebs involved in the game include Felicia Day ("The Guild"),
William Sadler ("Shawshank Redemption"), Zach Levi ("Chuck"), Michael
Dorn ("Star Trek:The Next Generation"), John Doman ("The Wire"), Rene
Auberjonois ("Boston Legal", "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine") and even
country singer Kris Kristofferson, who will play a gruff old soldier.

New Vegas is just the latest role-playing game to feature a burly cast of stars. January release Mass Effect 2 boasted the likes of Martin Sheen, Tricia Helfer and Carrie-Ann Moss, who helped turn it into one of the year's first big hits.

Set amid the ashes of a bombed-out Sin City, Fallout: New Vegas is the official follow-up to 2008's Game of the Year, Fallout 3. It's due out October 19 for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
