Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider herself, has been drawn into a guest appearance on UPN's upcoming computer-animated sitcom Game Over. Set for a March 10 premiere, Game Over follows the video universe home life of the Smashenburn family: Rip (voiced by Patrick Warburton), Raquel (Lucy Liu), Alice (Rachel Dratch) and Billy (E.G. Daily).

The Croft plot will find Lara and Raquel having a heroine heart-to-heart over an espresso. It won't be in the initial six-episode run, but UPN has ordered six more scripts, one of which will include Croft.

Game Over is Prime Time's first ever CGI-animated series. "Game Over is the type of groundbreaking comedy that fits the UPN brand and will definitely appeal to our young adult audience." says producer David Goetsch. So who will speak for Lara? "We still have to figure (that) out. Part of that is up to (Tomb Raider publisher) Eidos Interactive, because they own the character."
