We always knew he was the smartest guy in the room.
Edward Norton has nabbed the title as winner of the first-ever “Words with Friends” Celebrity Challenge, defeating Kristen Bell and Sophia Bush on his way to word domination and winning more than $132K for his charity, the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. “Anyone who knows me know I love words,” Norton quipped. That’s probably a good thing, given all the secret-service mumbo jumbo he needed to spew in the last “Bourne” movie.
Norton hopes to play Alec Baldwin in the future: “Anybody who would get thrown off a flight for refusing to stop playing WWF is somebody I need to play.”
