Friday LinkFrogging – 1/21/11



If you could spend two days locked in your wood-panelled basement playing ‘BlackOps’ with anyone on earth, who would you choose?

Awwww….that’s sweet. You’d choose your brother. But we said ANYONE on earth. That’s right, look up slowly, take a deep breath, and now decide.

We thought you’d come around.

This week’s cheesecake is none other than gamer-Geek extraordinaire Olivia Munn. If you’re a regular viewer of G4 TV you’re probably already familiar with Ms. Munn, having spent 4 years getting assorted tips from her as co-host of that network’s ‘Attack of the Show!’ And you  ‘Daily Show’ fans out there have gotten to enjoy her work since June 2010, when she was added to John Stewart’s ready arsenal of quick-witted correspondents.

The movies were also good to Munn in 2010, seeing her get turns in both ‘Date Night’ and ‘Iron Man 2.’ And since you like to read, there’s always her spectactularly titled ‘Suck It, Wonder Woman: The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek,’ also released last year.

Finally, a little personal trivia to help break the ice while the game loads. Munn was born in Oklahoma of Chinese and German-Irish decent, and grew up as an Air Force brat, primarily in Tokyo.

Now get in there and have fun! See you Monday.
