Various characters throughout the series have had connections to Hollywood. Vera Keyes, Gilda Broscoe and Keith McKinney were all famous Hollywood actors before the War. Raul Tejada recounts RobCo mastermind Robert House's fondness for Hollywood starlets during his pre-War life, a trait shared with Dean Domino and Frederick Sinclair. Hubris Comics producer Aaron Babowski had a number of connections in Hollywood, whom he threatened to call in to replace Tina Hopkins mid-production for the live-action adaptation of the Mistress of Mystery comics.

Raul Tejada: "Just how old do you think I am, boss? Because I can pretty much guarantee I'm older than that. Let me tell you a story from before the Great War: Everybody knew Robert House. He was a genius. A superstar. Founded RobCo at 22, dated Hollywood starlets, the works. They say he saved Las Vegas. I was in Mexico City when the bombs dropped. Even from there, we could see House's defensive rockets shooting down the incoming missiles. Everybody assumed he died in the War. Maybe he did. But his robots are still out there, roaming the Wastes. And now, a Mr. House rules New Vegas."
