Gears of War Visits Degrassi, adds Drake to the Team


Degrassi graduate Jimmy Brooks* aka hot young hip-hop artist Drake is heading to a Gears of War game near you. What’s he going to be doing? He’ll provide the voice of Jace Stratton, a new playable character (in co-op) in Gears of War 3. You might remember Jace from the comics and that one part where he showed up in Gears 2.

Is this a good call? Drake, whose real name is Aubrey Graham, is a legit star, and he was an actor before he broke out as Drake, and he was without a doubt one of the better performers on Degrassi. So, yeah, this isn’t the same as getting Justin Bieber.

*In school, I pre-gamed every Friday night while watching Degrassi: The Next Generation. It was killer.
