RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE's Tom Morello Has Been Playing Weekly Dungeons & Dragons Games
Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello doesn't have to hit the road until 2021. So he's spending some time with the likes of actor Vince Vaughn, WWE wrestler Paul "The Big Show" Wight, and Game of Thrones co-creator D.B. Weiss playing Dungeons & Dragons in actor Joe Manganiello's basement.
Morello tells Variety that Manganiello is one hell of a Dungeon Master.
"You would not believe Joe’s dungeon. There’s nothing that could occur in the game that someone could come up with in the spur of the moment that isn’t in some box. Like, the druid turned themselves into a weasel, and Joe says, ‘What color weasel?’ And then the red-striped weasel [miniature] comes out. It’s pretty amazing."
Morello explains later in the interview that the games are akin to a high-stakes game of poker. He stresses that while it might be a fantasy board game, everyone there is taking it very seriously.
"It’s similar to what a high-stakes poker game might be. It’s a game where friends gather that’s taken deadly seriously and is a lot of fun. But it’s serious. It’s very serious! We’re on an adventure that I think about a lot during the week."
