<DIV>Wait...so does anyone else read that as saying that Heather Graham actually plays EQLive and (now) EQ2?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>She HAS to just be saying that...No way does she actually play.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>My world would be turned completely upside down if she did.</DIV>

<DIV>That's cool, I'd never suspect an actress such as her to play Everquest II. Unfortunately when I clicked on the link I foumd out the lead dectective of my favorite TV show died <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> </DIV>

<DIV>My biggest ? is how many didnt want their name in the manual or just didnt make time of print.. Like the guy near CrossRoads in the Commanlands.. Canix I think his name is.. Sounds like George Carlin..   but his name isnt in the list..</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>BTW.. if you do a search, there was a thread just like this one back just after time of release</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>Why wouldn't she play? I saw an interview where Ben Afflek said he plays a ton of online games and has internet friends. (who don't know who he is lol) Famous people have lives too.</DIV>

There are a ton of voice actors for the game, if you do an IMDB search on the majority of them you'll find that they've probably voiced several other cartoons, and video games you've played as well. Such as the first time I met Cog Burn in Wailing Caves, I instantly recognized him as the same voice actor that did the character Invader Zim, as well as the same guy who did the voice for Canderous in Knights of the Old Republic.. people here and there. Being from freeport I just think that hearing Christopher Lee at all in the game is a bit over the top, he sounds really forced and out of place.

In all seriousness I thought it was really cool when Allakhazam's did the interview with Curt Schilling a while back regarding his EQ life... I wish more celebrities did this.

It's wonderful that "celebs" play on games like EQ, and if anything, it must be an amazing relief to get out of the spotlight and be just a season 12 crusader and not have anyone scream "[Removed for Content].. YOU'RE SO COOOL".Even still, the idea that I might just be grouping with Dubya is a little odd. I bet he'd play a mage. Stand back and nuke. No way wound be a tank and risk his life. Oops. Got a little too political there. Ah well. Ignore me. <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />I love the anonyimity of the game, and it's wonderful to know that only SOE truly know who you are, and they have the respect not to abuse that knowledge. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Dude it'd be AWESOME if Bush played EQ2, hahaha. I could totally see him playing a Brawler after that incident in Chile, or maybe an Inquisitor, hehe.Maybe in 2008 they could give each candidate a character and let them duel it out to see who wins the presidency? <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Maybe not. Would be an awesome spectacle to see in-game though.

<DIV>I don't remember the link but there was an interview that SOE posted some time back where Heather Graham and Christopher Lee both talked in depth about their involvement - and Graham said she was playing the game (EQ2) since she had gotten a copy - or would be playing it when she got it.  Go through the news archives, you'll see the interview link.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>BTW - trivia - Vin Diesel is a huge D&D and sci-fi geek.  He still buys manuals and source books and still games now and then - he's confirmed this time and again in published interviews.  He showed Judy Dench the properties of an air elemental from the Compendium when they were doing Riddick and Dench had no idea what an air elemental was all about.  He founded Tygon games which developed the Riddick game for X-Box and says he wants to do more with it.  So if any celeb is playing EQ2 I bet he is.  And there are probably tons of others.  I mean if I were famous that wouldn't keep me from playing EQ2 -- except to limit how MUCH time ... lol</DIV>

<DIV>Not that he is a huge celebrity,  But Anthony from Opie $ Anthony is currently playing EQ2 and discusses it weekly on their XM satellite Radio show.  He has mentioned both his character name and server on air.    Also, given that Schilling has mentioned in several interviews that their were  plenty of ball players who Played EQ1, I wouldn't be suprised if they were all playing EQ2 now.  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

Why does it surprise anyone that "celebrities" play these games? They are the ones with too much time on their hands.Kind of like Vice Presidents.RbT<p>Message Edited by Riis bal-Tannis on <span class=date_text>01-02-2005</span> <span class=time_text>09:25 AM</span>

<DIV>Back when EQ2 first came out sometime in the dark ages of 2004, and before I ended up on the server I'm now on, I grouped with two people, a girl and a guy, and the girl said that the guy was Richard Dean Anderson.  He said nothing one way or the other, but it was obvious he was new and just playing the game as a favor to the girl, and he kept accidentally getting the party killed, at which point the girl would say "MacGuyver would never have aggroed those mobs!  Colonel Jack O'Neil wouldn't have aggroed those mobs!  Pay more attention!" and stuff like that.  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I don't actually know if it was them, or just an obsessed fan and her boyfriend or dad or whomever, and I never saw them again after that.  But it made me think that we have one advantage over celebrities: if we screw up, we never have to hear "Hey, your character ___  wouldn't have done that!"</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>
