Who knew the Zynga Dallas team were such skilled caricature artists? Two of ABC's Good Morning America (GMA) anchors found that out the hard way when the developer transformed the show's Lara Spencer and Josh Elliot into CastleVille avatars. Now, whenever the two play the brand new Zynga game, they'll get to play as, well, themselves.

Zynga Dallas's Bill Jackson made the change GMA visited Zynga HQ in San Francisco, and described CastleVille a bit. When crafting the avatars for the two anchors, Jackson focused on Lara's similarities to the game's Yvette and on Josh's ... "protruding chin." We imagine that, if you're so lucky to be either Lara or Josh's friend on Facebook, you could be visited by their likenesses in the game world.

And if you "Like" GMA on their Facebook page, you will receive a special decoration within your inventory in CastleVille called the GMA Flag Pole. As it turns out, it's just a red flag with a golden base and purple flowers surrounding it, but it sure looks nice. I'd like to be a character in CastleVille, but I don't think folks had glasses back then. Check out the video below to see how a person becomes Zynga-fied.
