Jamie Lee Curtis does not appear in the upcoming Warcraft movie, but Jamie Lee Curtis does know how to dress for an event. Curtis and her son Thomas Guest strolled into the film’s premiere dressed as an orc shaman and warrior. “We’re serious about our games,” Curtis told Entertainment Tonight, and really, what more explanation do you need? (She added that “my son Tom is a player and I’m a supporter,” which is the explanation you probably do need.)
Curtis, one of our premier Hollywood cosplay artists, also went undercover as Street Fighter’s Vega at the 2015 Evolution Championship Series.
“I play Street Fighter more than you will ever know,” Curtis said in an interview after the event, hinting at the possibility that Jamie Lee Curtis has been playing video games in secret for her whole life: on the set of A Fish Called Wanda (Super Mario Bros.), before and after switching bodies with Lindsay Lohan in Freaky Friday (Halo, then Luigi’s Mansion), and during every single one of those Activia commercials (some very intense raids on Warcraft).
