Alright so the "Spokespeople" bio thing hasn't been updated on the Games website. Who do you think will be coming? I'm hoping for Steve Jobs and a FREE iPad or iPod--HA! :-)

Seriously, who do you think is coming? Larry Hagman and Chris Klug are pretty much a given ( :-) ) but who else do you think will make an appearance? Natalie Cole?
