Continue reading and find out exactly which famous people play League of Legends…
1. Dante Basco
Yes, Dante Basco is on this list, and I know it’s probably surprising to many of you to find that someone like Dante Basco plays League of Legends, but he does. Many of you may know Dante Basco from Hook, Jake from American Dragon: Jake Long, and Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
2. Vin Diesel
For some reason, it doesn’t surprise me to learn that Vin Diesel is one of the famous people who play League of Legends. Right now, Vin Diesel is working with Studio Wildcard on Ark: Survival Evolved 2. During Diesel’s Machinima interview, he spoke about the benefits of video games and then mentioned HoN. Since he’s a long-time gamer and has played HoN, then he has more than likely played League of Legends, that’s just how it is.
3. Justin Bieber
Oh, look, Justin Bieber is on this list. Who would have ever thought that he plays League of Legends? There was a point in time when Justin Bieber tweeted that he had started playing league of Legends, and can you guess who his favorite champion was? Justin Bieber’s favorite LoL champion is Teemo. Many LoL players have claimed that they have played against Justin Bieber, and many may have.
4. Aisha Tyler
Aisha Tyler enjoys online gaming and is well-known for playing League of Legends. In case you guys don’t know, Aisha is an actress and Comedian. In case the name doesn’t ring a bell, let me run some roles by you – in Criminal Minds, she played Dr. Tara Lewis. In Hawaii Five-0, she played as Savannah Walker, and in Glee, she was Jake’s mother. She also played Luna in Boondocks and Mother Nature in Santa Clause 2. When she’s not acting in a movie and has some free time, she plays League of Legends.
However, other players have been criticized by other gamers for having a poor Gamerscore, which she posted on her Facebook page: “ I don’t play to prove a point. I don’t play to be the best. I play because I love it.” I’d have to agree with her on this – as long as you’re playing League of Legends and having fun, that’s all that matters. If you’re doing something you enjoy doing, and you love it, then don’t care what someone else says because haters are going to hate; that’s just how it is.
5. Fred Durst
Fred Durst is the lead singer in Limp Bizkit, which I’m sure many of you have heard of. Apart from playing in a band, he also plays League of Legends and has his own Stream on Twitch. Now I know many of you are thinking it, and I just have to make this joke – is he doing it all for the Nookie?
