World Cancer Day and Your Xbox

Attention Gamers of the World and Good People of HuffPost:

Your friends at Microsoft and Xbox have teamed up with Stand Up To
Cancer for a pro-bono media campaign to engage their LIVE community in
the fight against cancer. Microsoft and Xbox have generously donated
content space on some of their most popular Xbox LIVE games for Stand Up
To Cancer's new Up2 You + Me music video -- which features yours truly.
For one month, beginning today, February 4th (World Cancer Day) you'll
be able to see the video on Xbox LIVE and it will be promoted within a
number of popular Xbox LIVE games.

The idea for the Up2 You + Me music video came courtesy of the amazingly
talented Selwyn Brothers. Brother Jesse directed, and Brother Zach wrote
and performs the song. We had a blast coming together for 12 hours
filming this video where I play 30 different characters and had 30
different costume changes. I got to keep some of the costumes -- which is
great because Halloween is taken care of for the next few years. Stand
Up To Cancer is an important cause and I was happy to play a part in
this campaign -- because when it comes to the fight against cancer,
really, it's up to you, it's up to me, it's up to all of us... you get
my point. Check out for more info and for those of you without
an Xbox (get one) you can check out the video here:
