and then I ask myself the question... why does it even matter, only to answer it to myself - we're so celebrity obsessed that endorsement from one does more to get us interested on sheer principle of "I'm experiencing the same thing as someone famous" as if it makes you famous by association or something, then being interested in something for its own sakes because we, ourselves like it for what it is.
Blizzard folks are smart. that's why they used all of those celebrities in commercials even though, I have a feeling most of them don't even play WoW, they just got paid to do a commercial

Hypothetical situation. if say... Patrick stewart played SW:TOR. if he posted here "yeah I play SW:TOR, my character is named "bob" and I play on ebon falcon.


He'd be getting a LOT of tells. and proably constant harassment
If Patrik Stewart did play Swtor, then his character would probably be a smuggler whose name is Picard and has the "Captain" title applied to his character name. I haven't seen any guy walking around with that name on the Bastion server yet lol. I wonder if Brent Spiner plays SWTOR lol?

Hah, this thread made me hit Google for celebrities that game; and apparently a lot of them like WoW - including Janina Gavankar, who does seem like one of the actual gaming celebrities if you look at her twitter and various interviews.
She mentioned in the interview with MOG Nation that she's looking to play more video game characters AND she tweeted:
"Janina Gavankar ‏@Janina 1 december
I WON THE LEGO STAR WARS DEATH STAR II ON EBAYYYYYY"

So obviously she's a Star Wars fan - what are you waiting for Bioware?
Voice actress for the next female companion found!
Thanks for showing us you listen to our feedback, Bioware!
Join the Galactic Referral Army today and see the galaxy! (with a free character transfer and some other shiny Cartel Market unlocks!)
Want more Class stories? Let Bioware know!

if I was a celeb playing this game, i MIGHT admit to playing it, but i certainly wouldn't let the world know my legacy/character name.

I bet Simon Pegg does.
Just a guess, mind.

If Justin Beiber started to play this game, I would put together an anti Beiber guild, and put together an army on the opposite faction as him to swarm him with angry mobs of sith, agents, and bounty hunters. With my plan he would be out of here in a day.

I have NO idea who any of these ppl are, never even heard of em before. I do know Mr. T & Chuck Norris tho lol. My idea of celebrities would be ppl like TI, Trey Songz, & Juicy J who I know for a fact have gaming systems on their tour buses. Or ppl like Taye Diggs, Sanaa Lathan, Morris Chestnut, or even Snoop who are all gamers & SW fans although that doesn't necessarily mean they play swtor.
