I'm just going to embed this trailer, let you know that Activision CEO Bobby Kotick is featured in this trailer, and mention that Activision has confirmed it's actually Kotick--not a lookalike. Okay.

I don't understand why so many gaming websites are writing this up as a news story. It's a real business executive acting in a movie, it has happened before.

Think positive: He should turn this into a career-switching opportunity. :)

You've got good instincts. Aaron Sorkin wrote the scripts for both films.

I know someone who's an extra in that movie,

I know someone who's in a movie with Bobby Kotick,

I am 2 degrees of separation from Bobby Kotick.

If people didn't hate him as much as they do, it probably wouldn't be a news story. But he's probably the most hated person in the game industry, so it is news I guess. Personally I find the amount of effort people put into hating someone who is far from the worst person in the world really pathetic. But I guess there's no hate like gamer hate. MY VIDEOGAMES NOOOOOO!!!

I think the great Scientist Marcus said it well when he said, and I quote: "Bobby Kotick is a cunt."

I'm pretty interested to see EA and Riccitiello's reaction to this.
Hopefully in the next Battlefield 3 press release or trailer.

Kotick won't even change that scary-ass wig for HOLLYWOOD. Lovely.

I'm of two minds on this, on one hand as a Baseball fan and a Boston Red Sox fan (2007 is a textbook Moneyball Championship) I really really want to see this movie. On the other I really really HATE Bobby Kotick. Dilemma.

seriously fuck kotick. i can just imagine the process that greedy prick went through to land a role in a movie with brad pitt. this shouldn't be bothering me as much as it is, but it's clear that he's a stereotypical fat cat executive who sees the world in dollar signs and nothing more.

Its probably a case where very rich man says "I think I wanna be in a movie"

uses absurd amount of money to get a bit part. Then tells everyone "oh yea since a kid i've always wanted to act."

No dude you just have a ton of money, and use it to buy your way into stuff like this. Am I jealous....You bet your ass I am!
