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).
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.
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."
