    Attendees at EA’s special GoldenEye: Rogue Agent Community Day – held in EA’s brand new Los Angeles studios this past weekend – learned some exciting news that has not yet been reported to the outside press. The Man With the Golden Gun star Christopher Lee has just signed to voice the character of Francisco Scaramanga in Rogue Agent, reprising his famous role from the 1974 James Bond film.

    Christopher Lee is a distant cousin of Ian Fleming, and was Fleming’s personal choice to play the character of Dr. No in the 1962 James Bond film. Lee is famous for his portrayal of Count Dracula in seven Hammer horror films, and has gained wide new fame by playing Saruman in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Count Dooku in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and the upcoming Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

    GoldenEye: Rogue Agent will be released in November 2004.
