Buffy Actress Becomes CES Ambassador
 
 

Eliza Dushku has come a long way from appearing next to vampire slayers - she's now an "ambassador" at the world's largest trade show.

The Consumer Electronics Show pioneered a new initiative called "Entertainment Matters" at last year's event. The focus is on how technology has shaped the entertainment world - including digital distribution of movies and music.

Dushku, who has appeared in Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Tru Calling along with a slew of movies, will be heading the program at next year's show.

"Eliza is a prominent figure in the digital entertainment community, boasting over one million highly engaged Twitter followers, appearing in a number of original digital entertainment series including The Guild, and having appeared in a number of major video games including the lead role in Bethesda Softworks' hit game, Wet, and the most recent entry in Electronic Arts' successful Fight Night franchise," the Consumer Electronics Association, which sponsors CES, wrote in a statement.

"As a part of her ambassadorship, Dushku will contribute to Spike TV’s 'CES All Access Live' broadcast coverage throughout CES and will also host the network’s exclusive VIP CES party at Tryst Nightclub in the Wynn Las Vegas."

CES 2012 kicks off in just a few weeks, at the beginning of January.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
