EA has announced that actress Emmanuelle Vaugier will star in Need for Speed Carbon this autumn.
Vaugier is perhaps best known for a recurring role in the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men, but has also stared in the feature films Saw 2 and 40 Days and 40 Nights. The emerging Hollywood talent was also named in Maxim's annual top 100 females list in May. In Need for Speed Carbon, Vaugier plays Nikki, the ex-girlfriend of the hero who returns to town to face his 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."
Need for Speed Carbon is expected for release in November on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, Nintendo DS, GBA, PSP, PC and mobiles.
