Emmanuelle Vaugier gets Carbon dated

by: Chuck -
It looks like EA has found their female lead for Need for Speed Carbon as they have signed Emmanuelle "Saw 2" Vaugier to play Nikki, the ex-girlfriend of the game's protagonist.  Since they haven't announced a second female lead I would imagine that you will end up reconciling with her by the game but we won't find out until the game is released.

Popular Actress to Play Central Role in Storyline

 

Redwood City, Calif. – July 11th, 2006 Electronic Arts (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today that actress Emmanuelle Vaugier will star in Need for Speed Carbon this fall. Developed by EA Black Box in Vancouver, British Columbia, Need for Speed Carbon delivers the next generation of adrenaline-filled street racing and challenges players to face the ultimate test of driving skill on treacherous canyon roads.

 

An emerging young Hollywood talent, Vaugier has a recurring role on the CBS hit sitcom Two and a Half Men.  She has also recently starred in the films Saw 2 and 40 Days and 40 Nights, and was selected to Maxim’s annual top 100 females list in May. In Need for Speed Carbon, Emmanuelle stars as Nikki, the ex-girlfriend of the hero who has returned to town to face his mysterious past.

 

“Being able to work in a videogame for the first time and working with the Need For Speed Carbon team at EA has been a great experience for me.  This is a game that evolves the racing genre, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it”, Vaugier said. “Playing the role of Nikki allows me to take a completely fresh approach to acting and push the boundaries of the creative process.”

 

David Footman, who has worked on such Hollywood blockbuster films as The Day After Tomorrow, X-Men, X-Men 3, iRobot, and Fantastic Four, was the director for the green screen video shoot with Vaugier. The full motion video shoot in Need for Speed Carbon processes live actors to look computer generated while maintaining their performances and facial expressions.

 

Need for Speed Carbon will be available for Xbox 360™, PlayStation®3, and Wii™ as well as the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® videogame system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™, Nintendo DS™, Game Boy® Advance, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, PC, and mobile.
