Goddamnit Hollywood, Find Something Better for Gina Carano Than This
Look, I’m not saying that Gina Carano is a brilliant actress, although she more than held her own in Haywire and was effective in Fast & Furious 6. But she has a commanding presence. She’s captivating, and draws the audience’s eye better than nearly any of Hollywood’s A-list actresses. She’s also hot, and brutal, and completely, incredibly badass, and I want her and Katee Sackhoff to do a Bad Boys-like buddy cop comedy together, and I want it to make a billion dollars. If there were some romantic tension between the two, well, I wouldn’t complain about that, either.
What we do not need to see is Carano doing some crappy, gender-reversed Statham B-movie with Cam Gigandet directed by the guy behind Into the Blue and Blue Crush. It’s beneath Carano. It’s beneath us.
And yet, here we are with the In the Blood trailer, and of course, it lands on VOD and theaters at the same time (April 4th). Will I watch it? Probably. But I’ll just end up shaking my head for half an hour wondering why Carano hasn’t landed her own Marvel franchise yet.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)
