Post New projects for Orlando Jones

With two new tv series premiering this year, Orlando Jones seems to be a very busy guy. Despite his tv show commitments, he has been able to lend his voice to a new video game coming out soon, and his talents to a new improv game show headlined by Nick Cannon.

Orlando will be lending his voice to a new game from Midway called LA Rush, which combines hip-hop talent and an arcade racing style within the game. LA Rush is set for release in October this year. You can view the full article here.

According to this tvguide.com press release, Nick Cannon Presents Wild 'N Out "takes something as stale as improv comedy and gives it flava by pitting its titular host and a team of comics against a guest "captain" and his own crew of cutups. The result? On-the-fly, hip-hop-influenced yakking and cracking that will push the limits." Orlando will appear as a guest captain, although the number of installments he will appear in is unknown. Thanks go to MoForPresident and Cartman2002 for this news.

Let's hope Nick Cannon's new show isn't as bad as the one he had on "Nickelodeon" (I think that's how you spell it ).

I also hope Nick's MTV series is a lot better than his music career too.

Ok the Rush games are the best racers ever made and I'm gonna get it just because of how cool they were when I was an Arcade junkie. Orlando's voice gig is just a cool extra thing in my eyes.

In L.A. Rush™, join the crew at West Coast Customs to pimp your ride and live the fabulous lifestyle of an L.A. street racer. With celebrity and hip-hop talent starring as in game characters, an intense soundtrack, with exclusive tracks, the latest in both concept and licensed cars, the auto industry’s top after-market parts, the world famous crew from West Coast Customs and an exclusive relationship with Harris Publication’s RIDES Magazine, L.A. Rush™ has it all.

L.A. Rush™, is the next evolution in the highly addictive Rush franchise, and will be released by Midway Games Ltd on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox® video game system
