Millions of people play League of Legends across the globe, so it should come as no surprise that celebrities do as well. After all, they are humans, too. However, you may be surprised by the celebs that play League of Legends. Will this list include superstars like Justin Bieber and Fred Durst? Continue reading to find out which celebrities play League of Legends…
1. Dante Basco
Yes, Dante Basco is on this list, and I know it will come as a shock to many of you to learn that he plays League of Legends, but he does. Dante Basco from Hook, Jake from American Dragon: Jake Long, and Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender may be familiar to you.
2. Vin Diesel
Vin Diesel is one of the prominent individuals that play League of Legends, which surprises me for some reason. Vin Diesel is now working on Ark: Survival Evolved 2 with Studio Wildcard. Diesel referenced HoN during his Machinima interview, when he spoke about the advantages of video gaming. Because he's been a long-time player and has played HoN, it's safe to assume he's also played League of Legends.
3. Justin Bieber
Look who's on this list: Justin Bieber. Who'd have guessed he was a League of Legends player? Justin Bieber once tweeted that he had begun playing League of Legends, and you can probably guess who his favorite champion was. Teemo is Justin Bieber's favorite League of Legends champion. Many League of Legends players have claimed to have faced Justin Bieber, and many of them may have.
4. Aisha Tyler
Aisha Tyler is a well-known League of Legends player that loves online gaming. Aisha is an actress and comedian, in case you didn't know. Let me go over some roles for you in case the name doesn't strike a bell: she portrayed Dr. Tara Lewis on Criminal Minds. She portrayed Savannah Walker in Hawaii Five-0, and she was Jake's mother in Glee. She also appeared in the films Boondocks and Santa Clause 2 as Luna and Mother Nature, respectively. She enjoys playing League of Legends in her spare time when she is not starring in a film.
Other gamers, on the other hand, have chastised her for having a low Gamerscore, which she expressed on her Facebook page: “I don't play to make a point. I don't compete in order to be the best. I play because it's something I enjoy.” I'd have to agree with her on this one: all that counts is that you're having fun while playing League of Legends. If you're doing something you like and love, don't worry about what others think since haters will always hate.
5. Fred Durst
Limp Bizkit's main vocalist, Fred Durst, is a name I'm sure many of you are familiar with. He plays League of Legends and has his own Twitch stream in addition to being in a band. Now, I know a lot of you are thinking it, so I'll just make a joke about it: is he doing it all for the Nookie?
6. Mia Rose
I know I told you about five renowned League of Legends players. Mia Rose is a professional adult performer with her own Twitch channel. She now has over 10 million views and is growing. She is presently playing World of Warcraft (another fantastic game), although she does sometimes switch to League of Legends.
7. Jim Butcher
The Dresden Files are written by Jim Butcher. “I definitely play a little more League of Legends than is healthy for me,” he said on Reddit. As a result, we can deduce what he does in his free time. Jim Butcher is well known for his Codex Alera series of books.
8. Jordan Fisher
Jordan Fischer is best known for his Netflix series "To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You." He portrays John Ambrose McClaren on this program. Jordan Fisher is a dancer and actor who is much more than Lara Jean's childhood love. He really enjoys playing video games, and while quarantine at Valorant, he achieved immortal rank. He's very excellent with the Phantom, based on one of his videos where he earned an Ace. He also enjoys playing League of Legends, Among Us, and Fall Guys.
9. Jay Chou
It's no secret that Jay Chou enjoys playing League of Legends. He faced TFBoys' Karry Wang in the League of Legends Pro League (LPL) show match. He showed us some really amazing skills in the Jungle alongside Master Yi during this time, and after 50 minutes, he easily dispatched Wang's squad.
10. Neymar Jr.
During the day, Neymar Jr. is a famous football player, but when the sun sets and the night falls, he turns into a serious gamer, and what game does he love playing the most? Of course, there's League of Legends.
So there you have it, my introduction to renowned League of Legends players. Which celebrity player took you by surprise the most? I was more shocked to learn that Fred Durst played League of Legends than Justin Bieber since Justin Bieber doesn't seem like the kind to play League of Legends.
