Edward Norton in "The Bourne Legacy"

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."

Below, a list of Norton's celebrity opponents (including Snoop Lion, the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg) and their respective charity hauls.

Final Standings:

1.       First Place – $132,500

Edward Norton, Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust

2.       Second Place – $57,500
