Last week Netflix sent Actor Bai Ling to the Star Wars Line outside of Graumans, apparently to cover it with Netflix logos and pose for publicity shots. The reason behind sending her was that she plays a character in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Er, um.. rather, she did play a character. AccessHollywood is reporting that she’s been cut from the film perhaps because she posed for Playboy. The Superficial has more details and some of the photos. While this does seem ripe for ridicule that Netflix sent an Actor from the new Star Wars who now isn’t in the movie, I think The Nerds are having the last laugh since in effect they got NetFlix to send over a Playboy model, which no matter how much some might deny it simply has to be more exciting. I’m waiting for word from my contacts at Hustler, Perfect 10, and Vivid about if they will also be sending over, uh.. representatives to the line.
FOLLOWUP: I made a post about this on the line’s message borard and they deleted it. Maybe they are in denial?
