    In the director's commentary of Resident Evil I, Mila jovovich and that other actress whose name escapes me talked about playing a lot of GTA. No idea if they ever played an MMO, though.

    Surprised to hear vin diesel played WoW. Guess WoW's marketing paid off (no surprise). And I find it hard to believe Sammy Jackson playes Eve (what race, what corp, etc); although it would be super cool if that was the case.

    Luckily, i don't need you to like me to enjoy video games. -nariusseldon.
    In F2P I think it's more a case of the game's trying to play the player's. -laserit

    Imo that information is one of the most closely guarded ones in the industry...

    Really, imagine the life of a celebrity like Samuel Jackson... Poor guy, he can't ever be just a normal dude. Wherever he shows his face it's "Oh man, you're Samuel Jackson!!!" Just think, mmos can provide celebrities with something no money or power can buy - a chance to hang around with "normal" people, to forget being a household name and to participate in the mundane world which is as closed to them (if not much more) as theirs is to us. I wouldn't be surprised that mmo-gaming is a hobby of choice for a lot of celebs nowadays...

    Hardly a surprise. He's a D&D player afterall.

    Vin grew up playing D&D, so WoW would not be a stretch for him, I would think :)

    If WoW's Ads are true...
    Vic Mingona, William Shatner, Verne Troyer, Ozzy Osbourne, Mr. T, Jean-Claude van Damme, Willy Toledo, Steve vna Zandt, and of course, Chuck Norris himself all play WoW :)

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Yeah, Vin Diesel seems to be one of the truly legit fantasy fans but I'm not sure if he still plays:

    the cool thing is he can probably be unknown even on vent.  The whole thing could just be like dude you know you sound just like Samuel L. Jackson???  Sam...I get that all the time, dont I wish!!!

    You know, I did bump into a pirate whose ship was named "bad mother f'r." Coincidence?

    Re Vin Diesel, I remember seeing a D&D book in a hobby store, and the foreward was by Vin, himself. Being a Vin fan in general (pitch black pwned), I found this super cool to read about how he and his buddies in NY would always find some fire escape or other secluded space to play D&D at.

    George Fisher from Cannibal Corpse admited in some interview that his contribution to the band's songs was small due to his WoW addiction. He would be playing the game while the rest of the band was writting the new songs.

    Doesn't Lil Wayne play Ultima Online. I also heard he was, for awhile there, addicted to Final Fantasy 11. Is it true? It might be one of those closely guarded secrets...like David Letterman's cocaine addiction through the 80s. I might be wrong, but its what I heard.

    Can you read slant-lettered words without moving squint-strained lips?
