A rising starlet in entertainment circles, the impending popularity of HALEY STRODE is catching fire at the most opportune of moments. With her joining the ensemble of big names such as Sean Penn, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the mob actioner “Gangster Squad”, this is the time for HALEY to reach the pinnacle and everyone knows all one needs it’s a big break like this. HALEY takes on the role of Marcia Keller, the wife of cop Conway Keeler (Giovanni Ribisi), a master of electronics who’s part of the police squad bent on taking down notorious criminal Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). Put her in a 40s piece and what you get is one lady who not only looks the part, HALEY’s believably a natural charmer in the Veronica Lake mould. She can channel a seductive mystique of bygone eras having appeared in another mobster tale, this time set in the 1960s on the new TV show “Vegas”. As Ruth, she’s a lascivious secretary who goes missing in the much talked about drama series.
Period or modern, HALEY is enticingly cute every time she steps in front of the camera and viewers would be familiar with her guest appearances on “Whitney” and “The New Normal” that premiered this year. There’s something about HALEY’s crimson lips and youthful desirability which deftly catches our attention. Seeing how she every so often is seen plying her trade in indie features, her likeability and reputation is in good stead. With a pilot she did being picked up for a 20 episode first season, she could very be the next “It” Girl.
It is Monday after all, so fittingly the spotlight falls on Über cutie KATRINA MUNDAY, upcoming indie sweetheart with a most lovable essence. Not only has she grown into her own as an actress, KATRINA has taken on directing and writing duties as well as dabbling in modeling. A nascent beauty and talent, she’s getting noticed in various circles and while the film industry in LA might be notoriously competitive, her perseverance is paying dividends. Soon to be released comedy “Steel Cherry” which was borne from her production company Inspirit Films has her as Kristina, potential love interest of a professor who let’s just say hasn’t done the dirty deed yet…ever! Will he be able to rise to the occasion in the company of the beautiful Kristina and finally be deflowered?? From the trailer (above), KATRINA pleases in a tease of a role, therefore the question we’ll be asking is will the kiss between her and her hot friend in a Truth Or Dare game come to fruition. However that pans out, come 2012 you’ll be able to spot her in “Gangster Squad”, a period criminal drama headlined by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone.
Now there’s something to look forward as will be the KATRINA MUNDAY OFFICIAL SITE, the portal to soak up the wonders of this adorable lady. Follow her blog as she has some interesting developments on the horizon. Whether it be her supplying those magical moments onscreen or pulling the strings behind the scenes, KATRINA aims to leave everyone feeling contented long after the camera has rolled. Gaining favor with audiences is a valuable feat and with her natural glow, KATRINA will captivate us for years to come.
Troian Bellisario & Ashley Benson in “Pretty Little Liars”
The fact that so many people are willing to impersonate Troian Bellisario and Ashley Benson on Facebook is a reflection of their explosive popularity. Last night “Pretty Little Liars” had its Season 2 premiere and our addiction to the show keeps getting stronger as the mystery deepens on who holds the key to their darkest secrets. Yup, I know there’s actually 4 gorgeous ladies forming the core of the show yet only Troian and Ashley have an social-networking presence. We would like to think the whodunit panders to teens but more and more audiences are cutting across varying age groups drawn no doubt to the tasty duo and their resplendent onscreen fettle. Let’s indulge in the merry-go-round of suspense and histrionics as long as our weekly fix of these enchanting cuties are satiated…personally i think the antagonist “A” could actually be one of these two!!
KATERINA MIKAILENKO in “The Protector”
Mila Kunis is not the only Russian born actress that’s making waves in the US as youthful starlet Katerina Mikailenko is charting her own path to success. A supporting role in the Christina Aguilera/Cher vehicle “Burlesque” has led to her booking a major part in an upcoming episode of brand new detective drama “The Protector”. We may still be waiting for a teaser/promo to be released but it’s a sure bet Katerina will add mountainous appeal to the eye-candy cast led by leading lady Ally Walker. She’s going to be on the rapid rise especially since she’s nabbed the lead role in the legend Malcolm McDowell’s thriller “Death Method” as well as appearing in “Crazy,Stupid,Love” with Sexiest Man Alive in-waiting Ryan Gosling. Young Hollywood has an exciting future ahead thanks to the emergence of the bewitching Katerina Mikailenko whom viewers are quickly devoting their attention on.
Kim Poirier in “Eureka”
While we have to wait until August to catch Kim Poirier return as Dr Maria Leonardo in “Eureka”, everyone knows she’s one of Canada’s most fetching Sex Symbols. I read that even Kim thought that this particular role was a one-off…I’m guessing due to popular demand, Kim is donning the doctor overcoat once more so her fans around the world can now rejoice!! She may have shed her sizzling sauciness for geeky scientist chic yet her irresistible facets is charmingly intact. Even though she’s famed for partaking in those memorably raunchy scenes in “Dawn Of The Dead” and “Decoys”, her body of work is deeply diverse showcasing the incredible range that she possesses. If you’ve always had a crush on the Miss Kim Poirier, this Summer Season is the time to be in constant affection of this sexy yet adorably down-to-earth Canadian Siren.
Charlene Amoia in “How I Met Your Mother”
Without a doubt, Charlene Amoia is becoming the quintessential darling of TV Land with strong performances in a series of hit shows notably “Glee” and “Shameless”. Already in 2011, she’s been dazzling our screens on episodes of “NCIS:LA” and “Mad Love” in addition to reprising her role as fan favorite Wendy The Waitress from hit “How I Met Your Mother. Lusciously Omnipresent and OmniPotent would best describe the pleasure Charlene has brought into our precious couch potato time. Has anyone mention that Charlene could pass off as the twin sister of one Miss Shannon Elizabeth? Imagine the two of them in a feature together….that would be so enjoyable…:) After all, Charlene is a genuine Goddess and she’s well-loved by being delightfully accommodating to her fans even one like me living miles away. A heavenly sweetheart who deserves all the tributes.
Becki Newton in “Love Bites”
The new series “Love Bites” about the ups and downs of being single might just leave you with a hickey, that is if you were watching with your significant other. After her mega-bitch scene-stealing turn in “Ugly Betty”, Becki Newton was tapped to star as one of only two unattached women in a group of friends. There’s an open concept behind the show with Becki (Annie) and Jordana Spiro (Frannie) central to the vignettes of love mixed in with a revolving door of characters that have issues with romance. Pamela Adlon and Jennifer Love Hewitt are set to have recurring roles that are thoroughly delicious (don’t miss the trailer above). Shifting from her dirty days as Betty-Hating Amanda Tanen to her now pristine innocence as virginal Annie, she’s got us enamored all over again. Who is a virgin these days anyways…and on the strength of that premise alone, viewers are expected to follow “Love Bites” for the inevitable “Breaking Her Cherry” conclusion to Becki’s chaste character!
