Fallout: New Vegas owes Wayne Newton a Danke Schoen

USA Today had a chat with Bethsoft's Jason Bergman and Entertainer Wayne Newton concerning Newton's in-game character "Mr. Las Vegas."
The quips delivered by Mr. New Vegas include suggestions to listeners to keep "living the dream." The character, Newton says, "has a perverted sense of humor."
The designers created the role for Newton "because he is Las Vegas," Bergman says. "He really brings that extra touch of Vegas class to the game. ... And whether he's reading news stories about super mutants or introducing a Dean Martin song, his personality comes through."
"I have never been in a video game before and, frankly, have never played, simply because I have been working my whole life," Newton says.
Newton says he'd read the dialogue — one-liners in some cases, two or three lines in others — and "do them just a little bit different, each one, until we hit on what it was the guys wanted ... where it is Wayne Newton, but it's not Wayne Newton, you know?"
Sure, where it is but is not, I understand very well.
