Gemma Atkinson Joins C&C: Red Alert 3

Ready.... roll those eyes.... now!

Electronic Arts' live action cast for their upcoming RTS game Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3 just gained another team member. UK actress Gemma Atkinson has been announced by EA as playing the role of Lt. Eva McKenna, a communication officer on the Allied side of the game.
Note to EA: You're supposed to cast people who can act but deliberately choose to do so badly in Red Alert games!

That article is wrong - she's playing a wooden table that you place the maps on.

^She'd be useless at playing such a table. Tables need to be flat.

Exactly! She was hired for her assets of which acting is not one.

Hmm, I did have a reply to place here, but I lost my train of thought...

Act, she cannot.

Being all sexy and stuff? This, she excels at. Oh, yes.

Well it's lucky the videos in C&C games aren't exactly renowned for strong acting.

Then I see no problem - Gemma will fit in nicely, and damn well sex up the place! Or whatever.

Re: Gemma Atkinson Joins C&C: Red Alert 3

^That was my point, though. The people cast in Red Alert games especially (and C&C3) can act, but it's part of the fun to do so badly. There's a bit of discussion about it on the DVD that came with the First Decade pack.

I don't think most Lost or Battlestar Galactica fans would suggest that the cast of C&C3 can't act.

How do you know she's not intentionally horrible, I mean would you even bother trying to stretch yourself on Hollyoaks?

I wasn't exactly being serious with that. But then again, is there much different, beyond the humour of the in-joke, between intentionally bad, and just bad? And surely, they intentionally cast her because she is bad?

I was never under the impression that Kari Wührer could act.
