Starlet rides shotgun with NFS: Carbon

Canadian actress goes for ride-along with EA's upcoming racer; <i>Saw 2</i> star will play protagonist's ex.

Sure it's nice to land on the cover of Electronic Arts' annual Madden NFL games, but another EA series has been catching the interest of gamers for its inclusion of celebrities. The Need for Speed series has been including some well-known personalities in its game, but rather than incorporating the hulking, chiseled frames of jocks, NFS opts for curvy, easy-on-the-eyes models and actresses.

The next edition of the franchise, Need for Speed Carbon, isn't breaking that trend. EA today announced that actress Emmanuelle Vaugier (pictured) will play a leading role in the upcoming game. Vaugier, known for roles in the gore-fest Saw 2 and the equally disturbing (in a different way) CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men. She'll handle the role of Nikki, the ex-girlfriend of the game's hero.

Vaugier follows in the high-heeled footsteps of Wild On host and Maxim mainstay Brooke Burke in Need for Speed Underground 2, and Van Helsing actress and model Josie Maran in Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Need for Speed is scheduled for release this fall on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, DS, Game Boy Advance, PlayStation Portable, and PC. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Celebrities really aren't needed to make the game any better. They could have just cruised the mall and find attractive girls there... lol Well as long as the game is good I'm on board.

I really think the story counts and having a charming lady makes it even more attracting, NFSMW was a fabulous smash with the story, graphics, and every thing else, can't wait to see what they have to offer with their new NFSC

LOL soulmanpt But dont you think that the best game on the shelf would be a different one? Not saying that MW sucked, just the story sucked. Id say that the mostly bought game would be the best (Obviously). More like WoW or HL2/CSS But i have high hopes for Carbon, and the model helps alot.

EA may not have the best taste in games but they have great one in chicks.

I hope she's nicer than that Josie Maran. My manager at Software ETC met Josie at a management conference. He said he threw his best game at her, and she totally didn't go for him. He needs to score with a celebrity of some kind to equal out the dammage to his CP(Cool Points) he takes for managing a video game store. I'm just sayin'. PS For the pre-teens here, "thew his best game at her" means he made a pass at her. He did not throw his copy of Need For Speed: Most Wanted Black. That would've been assault, and most ladies don't go for that.

I hope that this one must be best in the series * NFS most wanted was a good one but it gives no sense of excitement ,but this one will have great gameplay and with its movie like cutscenes like NFS most wanted this time the new star will be the nice one in series.
