I suppose this person couldn't act? Here's another interesting Lara Croft lookalike.

Nice to see MetaFilter staying one step ahead of the media

I think Ms. Jolie's face is close enough to right to be believable. As to her other attributes, no woman alive would be sufficient. I wonder whether they'll "enhance" her costume, or simply accept that it's different and go from there?

Are people really having fantasies about Lara Croft? Please stop it. You are scaring me. If you are playing Tomb Raider, and you find yourself saying something like, "Man, what a nice ass!", please stop playing and take a moment to slap yourself silly. If at this point you are saying, "Ya dude, but it IS a nice ass!", then it is to late. You have been engulfed by something very icky. But of course that's not the case. Surely you were just being "cute". Weren't you???!!

On the other hand Angelina Jolie does have a nice ass and you may fantasize about it all you want. Perfectly normal, perfectly healthy.

hmm..thinks that everyone should be reminded of the gear at fufme. It will really help you connect with Laura.

Interestingly enough, when women are hired to play Lara for Eidos they are offered, if necessary, a free D-cup augmentation. Unsurprisingly enough, Eidos does not pay to have the augmentation undone afterwards.

It's really too bad that the game is marketed that way. None of my female friends believe me when I say I like it for its playability and immersiveness.
