We do love the sweethearts of the independent scene and NATALIE has a refreshing geniality that beguiles. Her role as the daring skeptic Andi of a ghost hunting team on “Episode 50″ is memorable for being genuine and tense. Plenty of jump scares and eerie atmospheric moments which some have liken to being just as scary as those from “Grave Encounters”. With the cast being made up of several guys, it’s always great to see a female figure we are compelled to take a liking to and hope survives the ghostly experiences. Natalie is thoroughly fetching to the eye so it’s a given for viewers to watch her unscathed until the last frame…:)
Remember to check out her photo gallery at the “NATALIE WETTA OFFICIAL SITE” for a look at how wonderfully enchanting she really is. NATALIE just landed a co-star role on the new MTV show “Blogger Girls” which is a hilarious sketch comedy show directed by Michael Showalter scheduled to air in 2013. That would be quite the platform to launch NATALIE into a starlet with a rising popularity. Having also just finished being the lead in the film, “Second Chances” by IFP writer Justin Ferrarato, she could very well be sought after on a range of mediums.
‘Celeb of Tomorrow’, ‘Girl to Watch’, ‘Upcoming Ingenue’; these are labels bandied around in Tinseltown with regularity and one young lady with the innate dynamism of a star is the enticing KELLI BARRETT. Ever since she wowed audiences on off-Broadway in “Rock Of Ages”, it’s been a fruitful progress for her, culminating in a dramatic guest-starring part on “A Gifted Man” with Patrick Wilson recently. In fact, KELLI had previously appeared alongside Patrick as his wife in “The Switch” and he has only glowing words for this lovely brunette. She’s also had supporting roles in “Mr Popper’s Penguins”, “Confessions of a Shopaholic” and played a girl ‘Mr Twilight’ Robert Pattinson tried to pick up at a bar in the drama “Remember Me”. But if I had to point out her most riveting role to date, it has to be when she essayed the feisty yet emotionally torn Dahlia Jessup on “Law & Order:SVU”. As the lover of a wealthy defense contractor, she arranges under-age dalliances for him until things fall apart when he’s accused of rape. Her character was under the all-powerful thumb of a billionaire, a victim of circumstance, the sympathetic side of this woman’s devotion so ably expressed by KELLI…oh how love can be truly blind!
Now if said passion was for the telegenic KELLI, she’s destined to have a mad rush of admirers which will likely raise her profile even higher. Especially since she’s set to bring a saucy mystique to MTV’s new dramedy “I Just Want My Pants Back” as Jane, who happens to tumble into a one-night stand with the show’s leading man. In the wake of the lust at first sight, she leaves him lovelorn and very much pantless, awakening him from the slacker existence to search for the lost pants and of course his dream girl. With those sexy bangs, flirtatious brown eyes, and the requisite range needed to be enthrall viewers, KELLI is in prime position to be a sought after actress.
Endorsing captivating women on Film/TV are a staple of life and the very classy MARY MACKEY effuses a stunning glow to treasure. Previously, a successful runaway model for the bigwigs of fashion such as Donna Karan and Yves Saint Laurent, she can be seen in a host of television shows as well as independent features. I first saw her on MTV’s raunchy “The Hard Time Of RJ Berger” as Mrs Swanson, mother of Dream Girl Jenny Swanson (played by Maxim Hometown Hottie Amber Lancaster). Guess we know where Jenny’s foxy genes came from and while the comedy series is steeped in fiction, one can deduce why MARY was cast as her mum. She’s a yummy blonde indeed and judging from her bikini pic (above), passion for her is mere moments away. Mary has not only touch lives with her beauty as a performer, she’s also inspired confidence in people as an acting and life coach. Using her experience in various areas of entertainment, she’s imparted crucial know-how to help aspiring actors achieve their career goals. Mary also teaches a class on Hope at the Los Angeles Detention Center (LAMDC) which can be exhaustive and yet her perseverance in the most difficult of environments is laudable.
MARY is a lady of many gifts which brings me to her evolution as an indie starlet. In the psychological thriller “Sensored”, she was the voice of reason as Victoria, the psychiatrist of a disturbed serial killer who tries to halt his murderous instincts which proved futile and ends in a shocking climax!! Accessing the comfort level in fleshing out her role was key in depicting such a calm, non-threatening demeanor onscreen. MARY does subscribe to the notion of being comfortable in one’s skin as an actress as she has demonstrated starring alongside Don Johnson and John Schneider. A gorgeous face is clearly addictive, yet it’s the depth of the endeavors undertaken by Miss MARY MACKEY that will see her prosper.
What a way to end ScreamFest by frightening the living daylights out us with the World Premiere of “Cassadaga” and right here I’m featuring the hotties who make it all happen, one being the dazzling AMY LOCICERO. She has a pivotal role in this thriller which meshes the classic slasher with a demented serial killer and revengeful paranormal activity from the grave. You may have stumbled upon those promo pics on the web of AMY as Jennifer Eastman, the avenging female spirit, her devilishly sinister appearance formidably terrifying. As one of the victims monstrously murdered by the ‘Human Marionette’ slayer, she wreaks havoc upon a young woman by the name of Lily Morel, consequently setting off a gruesome chain of events. For someone so glowingly photogenic, kudos are to be handed out to AMY for what will be a haunting performance under some very revolting make-up or in her words truly creep-tastic! A visit to the AMY LOCICERO OFFICIAL SITE reveals she’s pretty busy on the acting front. I learned that she was in the running for “Charlie’s Angels” which has not surprisingly been canceled and faster than you can say ‘Charlie Who?’, AMY’s scored a role on MTV’s upcoming series “The Inbetweeners”.
Couch potatoes will know this is the American remake of the hit UK sitcom that reveled in its crude humor of gloating sexual conquests and British middle-class youthful awkwardness. Just as how Shameless (the other UK series that was re-imagined) gained a popular following, “The Inbetweeners” could yet be another gem and we can’t wait for AMY to sparkle, having done so before on “Drop Dead Diva”. AMY is quite the dainty beauty with a cultivated sumptuousness and research has shown women who tenderly beam are undeniably attractive at which point I allude to AMY’s fetching smile. This actress/model/host is well on her way to becoming a fixture on those perennial ‘Sexy Lists’ and she’s doing it without ever needing to be a tease.
Many would have already found rising starlet MELISSA PAULO pretty scrumptious after catching her in the McDonalds McRibs Commercial way back in ’08. Her yummy status is set to thrive in 2011 since she’s spicing up both the television series “Femme Fatales” and MTV’s “Death Valley”. She did mesmerize at the recent Comic Con and from the photos I’ve seen, MELISSA is hands down a Living Doll. A model from Hawaii, her ethnicity comprises a bewitching mix of Japanese-Filipino plus slivers of European nationalities; let’s just say MELISSA is too bewitching not to be thoroughly captivated. She uses that very sexy quality to great effect on the episode “Girls Gone Dead” from “Femme Fatales” as a sorority girl who gains the ultimate revenge on a porn mogul, an obvious nod to sleazy Girls Gone Wild head honcho Joe Francis. MELISSA may have played the bookwormish Erida but there’s something dangerous brewing when the black-rimmed glasses and clothes come off. Clearly MELISSA is a delight from the get-go, at first as the innocent, smart girl and revealing her true colors as the seductress/killer. And just like she says in one of her scenes, we men can’t resist her and that’s so true even when she’s out of character.
All this means we have to keep our eyes peeled for this honey in the first two episodes of “Death Valley” premiering August 29th. In the meantime you can catch her in two web series, the Angels vs Demons “Soul Fire Rising” and the 4-part pilot “House Of Heather”. MELISSA’s gorgeous, come-hither brown eyes and tropical exotic look without question adds to her mystique. I must admit the coyness she displays in her roles is so fascinating. It’s always nice to feature striking personalities of our era and MELISSA has done her bit in getting us gushing over her.
By coincidence or not, it seems like a blonde fest so far this week and I’m continuing in the same vein with CAITY LOTZ who has already left men drooling with her tempting Esquire shoot. Be it the sly nipple exposure or the flash of her pert derrière, CAITY has the assets to sizzle! She’s also starring in the upcoming MTV Series “Death Valley” as Kirsten Landry, an excitable Undead Task Force agent and having watched the trailer, she amazed me right from the start with the astounding spinning kick! Beware Vampires, Werewolves and Zombies as you get schooled by the Princess of Hard Knocks. Check out the video (above) of CAITY teaching us how to defend against them pesky Undead horde. This girl can do some seriously high impact stunts including parkour…huge props to her athleticism and flexibility she’s honed through the years as a dancer. After all, she has toured with mega star Lady Gaga and bust those dance moves on the film “Step Up 3D”. Slated to grace the massive 2011 Edition of Comic Con in San Diego, it’s pretty much guaranteed fans will come in droves to the “Death Valley” panel to cast amorous eyes on this blossoming TV Hottie. Have you seen the pic of CAITY pursing her lips…downright Sultry! To be able to combine intense physicality and appealing sauciness is breathtaking so much so I would love to see her in “Kick Ass 2″ be it as a supervillain or an ally of Hit Girl/Kick Ass.
Remember her as Stephanie in “Mad Men”, Anna Draper’s niece who despite her desirable status doesn’t subscribe to the norms of society in the 60s, a time when women were objectified. It’s great to see for once Mr Casanova Jon Hamm unable to get his hands on an enchanting lady. Check out the CAITY LOTZ OFFICIAL SITE for her reel containing snippets of her scenes from “Mad Men” as well as Law and Order:LA. She has the gift for drawing out those subtle yet dramatic moments onscreen. In just a short span of time, CAITY has skyrocketed to be quite the coveted actress and her star will only keep rising!
Courtney Halverson in “Death Valley”
Whenever an actress utters “SLUT” on camera, it’s always priceless and vivacious Courtney Halverson does it ever so brilliantly on upcoming series “Death Valley”. We’ve seen it all before; vamps,werewolves and zombies biting for screen time (Dylan Dog comes to mind) yet MTV is hoping fans come on board in droves for its reality TV-like grit involving an Undead Task Force, pop culture humor and of course the bevy of hotties…:) Renowned for her dramatic turns in “Godspeed” and “Hamill”, she’s now spicing up Summer TV. Courtney plays Natalie who partakes in ‘Turning’ parties where blood is drained as impressionable girls turned into vamps!! Looks like Ravishing Redhead Courtney could become just as much a temptation as Deborah Ann Woll from “True Blood”.
NICOLE MOORE in “Femme Fatales”
“Femme Fatales” is undeniably one of Cinemax’s stirringly raunchy skin fests to date and it’s great that the show let the women wield the power of seduction. As protagonists with tons of feminine wilds, a host of talented actresses dish our sheer captivation usually wearing little clothing. One such yummy performer is none other than Nicole Moore who stars in the film-noirish episode “Haunted”. Miles away from the meek ladies of “Boardwalk Empire” which was an unfortunate product of that bygone era, Nicole is devilishly delicious as a woman possessed who brings death to idealistic men! The babe-heavy “Sorority Row” introduced this sexy brunette and from then on, NICOLE has left us in awe of her stimulating aura that any real-life Femme Fatale would be proud of…:)
CODY KENNEDY in “CSI:NY”
It’s true that we can’t get enough of Cody Kennedy and when she donned a very saucy schoolgirl outfit in “CSI:NY”, our obsession grew tenfold. She more than fulfilled those Lolita fantasies we so often have and proves why she’s headed for big things. Besides a young talent on the ascendancy, she’s a breathtaking model and is a Video Vixen, having graced the music clips of Miley Cyrus and Leona Lewis. Now it seems, Cody is heading towards some heavy infatuation as a TV Starlet as she’s been appearing in a clutch of hit shows. Not that we haven’t had strong desires to follow her work especially since she’s pleasantly personable…oh and the small detail that Cody succinctly indicated she loves being on my Hot Lists. It’s an honor to rave about someone as infectiously appealing as her.
Polly Shannon in “Rookie Blue”
Polly Shannon is a devastatingly gorgeous charmer that recently was a scene stealer in “Shattered” as the kooky mistress Naomi of MPD-afflicted detective Ben Sullivan. This time around in the new season of “Rookie Blue”, she plays Tori, a sassy bartender who’s a suspect in a drug smuggling case. She once admitted in an interview that she doesn’t have the boobs and the butt for some of the racier scenes but it’s likely her fans would collectively disagree. By the way in the episode “Might Have Been” (see above), Polly has a saucy kissing scene and surely by now you’re drawn to her distinctively foxy eyes that are so hypnotic! There’s lots of reasons why Polly Shannon is coveted in many circles as this Canadian Cutie is always brimming with exuberance, possessing a bubbly demeanor that’s mega fascinating.
JESSICA EMBRO in “Covert Affairs”
She’s promised to brew coffee in anticipation of my trip to Canada and the planned visit to meet Canadian actress Jessica Embro in person can’t come soon enough. Particularly since this strikingly statuesque dazzler has revealed some juicy updates about her role on Season 2 of “Covert Affairs” (specifically episode 6 next week) and her appearance as a farm girl on “Little Mosque On The Prairie”. Although, we may not yet get our hands on any teasers with the luscious Jessica in them, satiate yourselves with the trailer (above) of her spooky thriller “Off Season”. A recent review of the horror flick points to the fine screen presence of Jessica who’s the female lead. Blessed with the ability to be authentically emotive on camera, we can’t wait for Jessica to set alight TV Land.
HOLLAND RODEN in “TEEN WOLF”
I have a feeling Michael J. Fox must surely approve of the stunning Holland Roden in MTV’s re-boot of “Teen-Wolf”. Oh wait she so kindly posted this on my Facebook wall only a few days ago: ‘Thank you for being sooo supportive I REALLY do appreciate it!!’ Michael My Man, Miss Holland has such a sizzling potency on and off camera, you and I both should be in awe..:) To show my admiration for this luscious beauty, it’s raving about Holland Roden time! Watch out! She’s no stereotypical Miss popularity as the sensual Lydia in “Teen-Wolf” who also happens to be the brainiest student out of the whole school population. Her refreshing take is bound for adoration and she’s lined up some pleasant surprises which we’ll be waiting with bated breath every week.
FIONA GUBELMANN in “Wilfred”
Every year we are treated to a TV show that’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. Enter the kooky comedy series “Wilfred” starring Elijah Wood and the vivacious Fiona Gubelmann. Setting up nicely for sparks to fly between the two is the strange connection that seems to draw them together. Elijah plays Ryan, the dude with suicidal tendencies, perceiving the dog owned by potential love interest Jenna (Fiona) as a man in a dog-suit (played by Jason Gann, the creator of “Wilfred”). Bizarre and hysterical situations are the order of the day. Australian accents, oddball escapist humor and of course the comely Fiona Gubelmann ensures interest for “Wilfred” will be huge. Fiona’s engaging presence as the girl-next-door will endear herself to viewers everywhere.
AZITA GHANIZADA in “ALPHAS”
After “Heroes” and “No Ordinary Family” comes a new breed of superhumans to rouse the sci-fi geek in us once again. I’m referring to the upcoming series “Alphas” which has the always enticing Azita Ghanizada in a starring role as a woman who has the ability to heighten her senses to exceptional levels. There’s no ‘Save the Cheerleader’ campaign here; “Alphas” is more akin to CSI but instead of insight and deduction, crimes are solved with the help of extraodinary gifts. Azita herself is one of the Special Ones, mesmerizing us with her exoticness and captivating us with her dramatic flair. While she faced ups and downs during her career, Azita has now pushed into the forefront, quickly making her mark and building an ever-growing fanbase.
MIKAELA HOOVER in “Happy Endings”
Hands up all those who saw the saucy Mikaela Hoover flash her luscious rear in the very first episode of “Happy Endings”. That tempting scene somehow co-relates to the very title of the show “Happy Endings”….pretty amazing!! Do we dare say she stole the thunder from her co-stars like Elisha Cuthbert and Eliza Coupe…then again she’s been doing that a lot lately. Most recently she was the superhero sidekick Holly who inspires Rainn Wilson’s alter-ego transformation in dark comedy “Super”. If you’re searching for the sweet sensuality onscreen, Mikaela personifies the very best. This lovable brunette has tons of charm that goes beyond the looks department and should therefore seriously be considered as an emerging Sex Symbol.
Melanie Papalia in “EndGame”
Best remembered as the tongue tornado receiving co-ed Dana in the raucous “American Pie:Book Of Love”, Melanie Papalia currently has a plum role as Pippa Venturi, documentary filmmaker and blogger in the murder mystery episodic drama “EndGame”. Belonging to the esteem group of Canada’s fastest rising starlets, Melanie recently starred alongside Halle Berry in “Frankie & Alice” and at 24 has generated constant attention. Melanie has been amazing in all 11 episodes of “EndGame” thus far and it’s her illuminating cuteness that has made her an addictive watch on TV. It also becomes essential viewing when two Canadian Sirens, i.e. Melanie and Katharine Isabelle dazzle their way into our hearts. To be a devotee of the praiseworthy Melanie is sheer delight.
