Up to $500,000 in prize cash courtesy of American Express was available, with celebrities like Sophia Bush, Jonah Hill, and Snoop Lion all competing for charity.
Norton, who was playing to support the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Fund, was confident from the get-go that he would make it to the finals.
“I have to give myself time-outs on `Words With Friends,”‘ he told the AP last week. “I’ve gone through phases where I’m like, `What am I doing? This is much too much of my day.”‘
According to the finals on Zynga, Norton played Sophia Bush (who was also supporting the Maasai – so win/win) for the title. More details as we get ’em.
