Yesterday it was revealed that Freddie Prinze Jr. would be starring as Commander Shepard’s sidekick James Vega in Bioware’s upcoming Mass Effect 3. I’ve always felt that Mr. Prinze Jr. was given a bit of a hard time after the Wing Commander debacle and never really had an issue with the guy or his acting skills. The truth of the matter is that I’ve always admired him a bit. Why you ask? Not only did he marry Buffy, but he was proud to admit that he was a nerd back in the 1990s when it simply wasn’t cool. That’s right, Freddie frequently went on record professing his love of video games and comic books long before it was “hip.” When I got home from work this afternoon and read that Prinze would be playing James Vega, I wasn’t the least bit surprised. Somewhere deep within the pits of Bioware is an incredibly hardcore She’s All That fan as Rachael Leigh Cook recently voiced Jedi Padawan Jaessa Willsam in Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic. Coincidence? I think not! Check out the video HERE.
