Here are the biggest E3 celebrity appearances of all time.
Celebrity Appearances at Past E3 Events
E3 has been a haven for some of the biggest franchises announcing their games. Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft and more all utilized this event to showcase upcoming projects they were preparing to release.
Not only did the companies produce crazy awesome trailers for the events, but they sometimes would have big celebrities make appearances too.
Here are some of the biggest and best celebrity appearances at past E3 events.
1. Robin Williams
Robin Williams, the late actor who was known for comedy and strong performances in many different films helped present gameplay of the game “Spore” back in 2008. Williams was known for loving video games, as his daughter was named after the famous princess, Zelda.
Robin Williams’s appearance at E3 was iconic and a memory many gamers hold dearly.

Keanu Reeves’s appearance at E3 was just as legendary as any others.
3. Snoop Dogg
Not only did Snoop Dogg show up to E3 to play video games, but he showed up in style while smoking a blunt. If there is a better way to describe Snoop Dogg, then I’d love to hear it, because his appearance at E3 still stands as one of the greatest.
Snoop Dogg takes the cake as one of the most iconic E3 appearances in history.
Angela Bassett’s appearance surprised a lot of gamers. The Golden Globe winning actress was not someone people thought would associate with video games. Regardless, Bassett made her appearance at E3 to help promote Rainbow Six Siege, a game in which she was a lead.
Angela Bassett is proof that there are more people out there who appreciate the gaming world than people realize.

Steven Spielberg, known for being the director of some of the biggest movies in the world, walked on the stage at E3 years ago to help promote the Xbox Kinect. While the Kinect never ended up being a huge hit with gamers, people were still ecstatic to see the popular director at E3.
Steven Spielberg is an icon within Hollywood and having him appear at E3 was a great move by Microsoft.
