The Dungeons & Dragons tabletop RPG is finally garnering the recognition it deserves, cropping up in modern pop culture marvels like Stranger Things and even getting another movie soon (supposedly). Surprisingly, there are a ton of high-profile celebrities who play Dungeons & Dragons, from Felicia Day to Joe Manganiello, who runs a campaign filled out with plenty of surprising stars.
D&D debuted in 1974, and since then, many kids who grew up playing the game have graced the silver screen, become sports superstars, or created incredible films. Some have managed to keep their love for D&D a secret, while others have embraced it.
It might surprise you to learn that some of your favorite celebrities love pastimes like Magic: the Gathering and Dungeons & Dragons, while others may seem pretty obvious. Though most people might think a person has to fit the classic definition of a nerd to love D&D, these celebrities all but dispel that myth. You may have sat around playing this game with your friends years ago, but many of the world's most famous stars still break out their dice bags for a taste of adventure whenever the mood strikes.
