In Search Of a Model For The Next Need For Speed…

with 3 comments

Josie Maran aka Mia Townsend did a great job in Need for Speed: Most Wanted and that was a great idea of having models featuring in the Need for Speed Series by EA and that really did make a difference in the way the game was looked over. Now the whole Need for Speed community is eagerly waiting for the next Need for Speed Series which definitely will have a celebrity as a character. 🙂

I found that EA has been conducting various polls for features to be included in the next NFS game and while browsing through the EA Site, I just saw a poll asking What celebrity would you like to see in a Need for Speed game ? That was really amazing and I’m sure this will drive the Need for Speed fans more crazy.

Its quite sure that EA is about to choose one among the 5 different celebrities mentioned in the poll. Lets take a close look at each one of them.

Amanda Righetti

AmandaAmanda Righetti was born on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Nevada. The youngest of eight children, she has six sisters (one of whom is now a dealer in a Vegas casino) and one brother.

Having spent her childhood in permissive Las Vegas, Nevada, Amanda Righetti grew up in a hurry. But that didn’t dull her sense of adventure or her faith in her own talents: she took a Vegas-sized gamble on acting in Los Angeles, which paid off handsomely with a role on the hit show The O.C. in 2004.

Amanda has had less success on North Shore, for which she left The O.C. in 2004, but the setting of sand and surf is an even better showcase for beautiful Amanda. Even the show’s expensive set budget ($850,000 per show) can’t compete with Amanda as eye candy.

Rosario Dawson

Rosario Rosario Dawson was born May 9, 1979, in New York City. She was raised in a Manhattan tenement building by her Bronx-born mother, a professional vocalist, and her father, who worked in construction. Although Rosario’s parents separated when she was still young, they continued to live in the same building, allowing Rosario and her brother to remain close to them.

Despite appearances in an Ethan Hawke production and other stinkers like Josie and the Pussycats, Rosario has earned stability in the entertainment industry through her sheer acting talents. This girl is going to be around for a while — if The Adventures of Pluto Nash couldn’t kill her career, nothing will.

Piper Perabo

Piper Born in Toms River, New Jersey, Piper Perabo is the eldest of three siblings (she has two younger brothers, Noah and Adam). Coming from a family of Portuguese and Norwegian descent, her different name can be attributed to her hippie parents’ desire to give their daughter an original name.

She starred in the much anticipated Coyote Ugly, as well as the remake of the cartoon classic The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. Piper Perabo is the kind of girl that takes guys’ breath away. She doesn’t really have to do anything. In fact, it’s pretty much her smile that’s responsible for all the males’ shaky knees since one look at her million dollar smile is enough to make any man fall in love.

Samaire Armstrong

SamaireBorn on Halloween, 1980, in Tokyo, Japan, Samaire (pronounced Sa-mee-ra) Rhys Armstrong proclaimed at the age of 3 that she wanted to be an actress — her mother still has the videotape of that moment. Samaire spent her childhood in Japan and Hawaii before settling in Arizona.

Armstrong has made a name for herself in several teen-oriented productions. She was sexy in Not Another Teen Movie and then played a big tease as Anna Stern on FOX’s The O.C. Her role as Emily in HBO’s Entourage proved she can shine in a more mature setting, while her return to film in Rise, Stay Alive and Just My Luck (co-starring Lindsay Lohan) shows she has a future in Hollywood.

Stacy Keibler


Born October 14, 1979 in Baltimore, Maryland, Stacy Keibler naturally gravitated toward physical activity such as dance from childhood. From the age of three she was involved in ballet, tap and jazz dance, her parents making a commitment to go as far as Stacy’s talents would take her.

Stacy Keibler is an accomplished wrestling star, first lighting it up in the defunct WCW and now causing cardiac arrest in the WWE.

I guess that was mind-blowing, each one having some speciality. So whom would you vote for ? Thats really tough choice to be made, and may be thats why EA left it out to NFS fans :). My choice in the poll would be Amanda Righetti.
It would have been much better if the same story was continued and this time having Mia also as a playable character ( Something Like in Half-Life 2: Aftermath ). Josie Maran was amazing and I wish Mia is brought back in the Next NFS…
