Friday's special "sympathy news post" goes to SEGA this week for its announcement that Lacey Chabert is set to play the role of Princess Elise in Sonic the Hedgehog on PS3 and Xbox 360.

Lacey - who was apparently in Party of Five and Mean Girls - has previously done videogame voice-overs for Rugrats Go Wild and Bratz Rock Angels, and claims to have been playing Sonic games since she was nine years old.

SEGA says that this will mark the first time in Sonic's history that Hollywood talent has voiced one of the characters, although we're willing to debate this point.

Anyway, we'll stop being mean now and let you go off and do Google image-searches instead. Sonic the Hedgehog's due out on PS3 and 360 this Christmas.
