Celebrities live busy lives. Depending on a celebrity’s fame, the more active they become. Sometimes their busy schedules can be about a particular project they are doing. Only a few stars spend less than eight hours on set. Most of them spend 10 to even 16 hours working on their latest projects. However, some celebrities can’t help but save enough time to de-stress and enjoy their favorite video game.

It has even surpassed the sports and movie industries combined. It’s no surprise for most people because it seems that athletes and celebrities alike are into gaming. But most of them keep it away from the media. However, since it has become such a profitable market, some can’t help but take advantage of it.

Fallout is considered one of the biggest franchises right now in gaming, and Perry can’t seem to stop playing it. In an interview with Ellen Degeneres, he stated that he had gained carpal tunnel from playing the game so much that he had to visit a doctor. He also gave Ellen a copy of the game, which came as a surprise to the host.
Eventually, Perry landed a role in one of the Fallout games. In Fallout: New Vegas, he was assigned to voice one of the game’s pivotal characters, Benny. Perry claims it was one of the best moments in his life.
