World of Warcraft is a game that touches millions of lives daily. It’s not just for the stereotype of a nerdy, white, 20-something male. People from all walks of life from around the world have lost themselves in the diverse world of Azeroth. Some dabbled for a day or two, and others live a second life within the game. If you’re one of these players, then you know just how diverse the people behind the avatars can be. Many celebrities have also explored the game, and some of them as just as into it as you.

Middle Earth isn’t the only realm where these two Hobbits roam. The pair also enjoy spending time in Azeroth, and even had a live debate to argue about World of Warcraft over the course of two rounds. Monaghan argued for the game, but Wood had to argue why it was a waste of time. Guess who won that one.
Of course, if you’re reading Geek & Sundry, then you probably already knew that. Day told Engadget that she had a serious WoW addiction for about two years and would spend most of her downtime playing. She kinda made an entire web series that may or may not be about people who play a game that may or may not be World of Warcraft. Just sayin’.
Kunis played a mage on the Alliance side and told Jimmy Kimmel what’s what during an interview. She used to play with Macaulay Culkin back when she was dating him, but became so hooked on the game that she had to force herself to quit. She’s also discussed her gaming past with Dan Amrich on his podcast One of Swords.
You already knew Diesel enjoyed Dungeons & Dragons. You’ve literally seen him it play with us. But did you know that he’s also a Warcraft fan? It’s true. He shared this video of himself playing with the late Paul Walker back in 2010.
TV’s beloved Hodor loves the game so much that he plays multiple characters on both US and European servers. In an interview with Engadget, he stated that he loves PVP and is part of a guild called “Winter Is Coming.” Nairn confessed to trying to lure his fellow Game of Thrones castmates to play with him, but to no avail.
Warcraft is now playing in theaters nationwide. Have you seen it? Tell us what you think in the comments!
