Happy birthday cult siren Becky Mullen

While going over the celebrity birthday post of wet t - shirt queen Leslie Easterbrook I realized that Becky Mullen, who I mentioned in that post and the one about Janet Jones Gretzky , celebrates her 52nd birthday Today which puts her in line with other famous people that were born on that day like Henry Ford, Emily Bronte, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Vivica A Fox, Simon Baker, Hilary Swank, Laurence Fishburne, Kate Bush, Paul Anka, Jean Reno, Jürgen Klinsmann, Monique Gabrielle and me.

I´d like to do posts on all of them but I haven´t got the time so since I had to cut Becky Mullen´s part from the aforementioned posts because they were just overloaded with GIFs we´ll concentrate on Becky in this post. Becky is best known for three things, the first one starring in the Andy Sidaris movie HARD HUNTED as the bikini clad ( and sometimes topless ) assistant to radio DJ and sextherapist ( in the movie as well as in real life ) Ava Cadell who really should have been on television.

But don´t ask me what happens in that movie because they all blend into one movie for me. Becky only appeared in that one Andy Sidaris movie - maybe because she had other obligations - and was replaced by Sandra Wild who was better known to european audiences as one of the more voluptuos girls who took off their clothes on the show TUTTI FRUTTI .

I have already done it in my post about ITALIAN SOCCER MOM SIMONA VENTURA but for the benefit of new readers who might have missed this I should probably explain what TUTTI FRUTTI was. There was a show called COLPO GROSSO from Italy with some dancers dressed as certain fruits who would dance to a special song and when the last refrain said " chin chin " they popped their tops and the candidates had to bet ( before they opened their tops ) if they had stickers of fruits on their breasts or not.

If they had fruits - or rather stickers with fruits - on them the candidates would win points and if they had enough of them they could get the women who presented the european nations to strip. Who could get the most women the most naked was the winner and the points they would score were called country points or Länderpunkte, a word that has become a household expression in Germany. It´s not unusual to hear german tv viewers say : Well, we´re not going to see any Länderpunkte in this movie. Anyway, the show was done to promote the Ecu, the new currency for a United Europe ( no, that really didn´t work out that well ) but the important part was getting to see girls strip. Although the men always couldn´t remember which girl represented which country and so often the hottest looking girls never got their turn. This one was my favorite.

The show was adapted by various countries and it was called AY QUE CALOR in Spain and TUTTI FRUTTI in Germany. In Germany it was the show nobody watched ( or admitted watching ) but everybody saw.

When it was first shown in the 80s I was doing my military service in Munich and in my room there was cable tv - unlike at home. So every Sunday afternoon I took the ICE to Munich, bought some american comics at the station, went to the barracks, showered, shaved and watched TUTTI FRUTTI before going to sleep. And I always made sure to catch the beginning, I didn´t want to miss the big breasted hottie from the intro.

Boy, she was something else. I had some happy dreams back then.

In Germany the show was hosted by Hugo Egon Balder, Tiziana and Monique Sluyter, who may be responsible for my fixation on Power Girl.

I mean it must have been around the same time when I read Bart Sear´s version of Power Girl in the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE EUROPE and when I saw Monique´s raunchy striptease as Marilyn Monroe on TUTTI FRUTTI.

For more on Monique Sluyter and Andy Sidaris I already wrote about that at length in my JLA movie casting : Andy Sidaris special post and I did another long post about Unsung 80s direct to video icon Andy Sidaris .

The second thing Becky Mullen is known for - and this is probably where most people remember her from - is being on an episode of MARRIED WITH CHILDREN with sexbomb Pamela Anderson in white lingerie.

It´s the episode where Al is having these dream sequences with first Becky, then with Pamela and then with both fighting over him but each time it´s about to get interesting Kelly - of course - wakes him up.

I really can´t decide who´s hotter in the episode, Pamela or Becky. I mean Pamela is Pamela, my very first candidate for the SEARCH FOR POWER GIRL series but Becky is nobody you would throw out of bed either. The scene when she takes off the business suit is just extremely sexy. WOW !

Becky appeared in a few erotic movies like SINFUL INTRIGUE, which is extremely difficult to find because there seem to be at least ten movies with this name and you want to get the right one. In the movie she´s a hot babe who gets taken advantage of by her bad boyfriend who makes her do some hardcore stuff which she´s not comfortable with.

Basically he treats her like a prostitute which is not okay. Even if she has the measurements to be the centerfold of a certain publication for men I already mentioned twice in this post you should treat her with respect. But her husband is not even trying, I mean no flowers, no presents, no nice dinner, just " Slut up, wife ! " and then it´s " Wham, bang, not even Thank you, Ma´am ! " What a dork. On top of that he cheats on her with every other woman he comes across like his nymphomanic hasian porn masseuse Mai - Ling ( really, like there are no other names for asian women, but that´s Hollywood for you ) played by ultrahot Chona Jason, who gives him a special massage - one of the best scenes of the movie.

Oh, there is one decent guy in the movie who has the hots for Becky Mullen - her neighbour - but of course she keeps him at a distance and only does it with him out of pity when he´s ill. Just like in real life.

The guy who treats her like a prostitute gets to do her every which way day in and day out the whole year while the nice guy finishes last.

There´s some kind of murder story involved but the important thing is that Becky Mullen gets to strut her stuff and wears some kinky outfits. If you have a chance you should watch the movie, it´s quite entertaining and the story doesn´t distract too much from the erotic parts of it.

Now, all of this might not be interesting but the reason why I´m even mentioning it at all is that besides having parts on almost every tv show from RENEGADE to CYBIL to MADtv to PACIFIC BLUE to HUDSON STREET to HIGH TIDE to BLACK SCORPION and appearing in Andy Sidaris´ HARD HUNTED movie she also played the part of Sally, the Farmer´s Daughter.

Not on Playboy Late Night or in an erotic movie but on the first season of GLOW, Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling one of the few shows with female wrestlers shown on german tv. At that time as a wrestling fan you took what you could get and I´m not sure if the show was really that serious.

 Although there was this one episode where one of the female wrestlers had an accident and sprained or dislocated her elbow and they kept repeating that footage over and over during the show. Which was really freaking me out. There were some weird characters on the show and I remember having a thing for Palestina who had quite a big rack.

This is the clip with the best quality I could find on YouTube where she goes up against Olympia. Man, I totally forgot that she never wore a bra.

There were other hot wrestlers on the show but the woman that made the biggest impact in wrestling outside of GLOW was Lisa Moretti who played Tina Ferrari. Lisa went on to wrestle for the WWF / WWE as Ivory and hold the WWF Women's Championship three times. Ah, good times.

I think GLOW aired around the time when the legendary CATCH UP show was on RTL presented by Joe Williams and Horst Brack der Bestrafer ( Horst Brack the Punisher, obviously named after the MARVEL character ).

While the wrestling matches ( NWA, CWA and WCW ) were interesting the best parts were the banter between straight man Joe Williams and heel Horst Brack. And of course the highlights of the shows was the interview section BRACK´s PRANGER ( Brack´s pillory ) where Horst Brack either buttered up his guests or trashed them depending on whether he liked them or not. But Horst Brack wasn´t just like most people all talk and even participated in a few wrestling matches. I tried to find the legendary fight against Rene Lassartesse but the only video I could find was this one with a tag team match between Horst Brack & Rolo Brazil vs Rene Lasartesse & Indio Guajaro.

Horst Brack a.k.a. Rochus Hahn a.k.a. Robi is also a prolific comic writer who wrote such german cult comics like MENSCHENBLUT, DR. DIPPERZ ( the german version of Dr. House only this one really IS insane ), HORST, LUNA, ARSINOE or ALRAUNE. One of THE coolest guys in german comics.

I remember that every time at the INTERNATIONALER COMIC SALON ERLANGEN he was nominated for best writer or best comic with his newest publication from SCHWARZER TURM and most of the times won.

Once again, time to wrap things up since I have been writing waay too long on this post already. But as usual here are the shownotes with the websites without making this post would have been pretty difficult :

becky mullen imdb / glow wiki / glow article ( lot of background info )

name the glow girls from season one quiz / catch up fansite

catch up wiki / horst brack facebook / rochus hahn wiki

So happy anniversary to Becky Mullen, a woman of quite many talents.

Our first video is a compilation of all the hot women that have appeared on MARRIED WITH CHILDREN like Becky Mullen, Pamela Anderson or porn star Traci Lords. This is something I can look forward to now that I have gotten the complete series on DVD at a real bargain price at amazon.

Here´s another video from GLOW, this one is Becky Mullen as the Farner´s Daughter going up against the as usual braless wonder Palestina.

Since I couldn´t post a video of TUTTI FRUTTI because of the nudity here is an entire episode of CATCH UP with Horst Brack and Joe Williams featuring - among others - " the total package " Lex Luger, Flying Brian Pillman, Midnight Express and Doctor Death and the Road Warriors.

I had put a video of Brack´s Pranger in the original post which has since then been deleted so here is a new one featuring german actor Martin Semmelrogge who once was on a book signing tour with Neil Gaiman who in turn wrote a few poems with the name Martin Semmelrogge in them.

We close the post with one of the biggest names in lucha libre Santo, el enmascarado de plata. I already posted one of his movies which run the full gamut from horror to crime to comedy. Here is another one from the horror section EL SANTO Y BLUE DEVIL VERSUS DRACULA Y EL HOMBRE LOBO. I love it when he goes up against classic horror monster especially because some of their names appear in the credits like Franqestein.

Happy wet birthday Leslie Easterbrook

Today Leslie Easterbrook celebrates her 66th birthday so I thought it´s time to re - post her part from my post about bikini hardbody Janet Jones Gretzky and the POLICE ACADEMY movies for which Leslie is best known for especially her appearance in POLICE ACADEMY 4 - CITIZENS ON PATROL where she emerged with a wet t - shirt from a swimming pool .

Aside from Leslie Easterbrook you may recognize Janet Jones Gretzky from the POLICE ACADEMY movies and she is one of the many the unsung heroines that transform many otherwise unwatchable b - movies into bearable entertainment. So the post was my chance to give them props.

And it was also a possibility for me to talk about the POLICE ACADEMY movie franchise and a whole lot of other stuff that came to mind. Now that I´m almost about to finish the post I am tempted to call it MOVIE CULT SIREN JANET JONES - AND OTHER STUFF LIKE WET T - SHIRTS, PLAYMATES AND POLICE ACADEMY but that´s just too long. Janet is of course best known for appearing in POLICE ACADEMY 5 - ASSIGNMENT MIAMI BEACH in a stunning white swimsuit presenting her best assets and she´s one of the reasons people still watch the movie. Or at least wait for the parts with her in them to be over before zapping to something else.

Nowadays nobody really watches the complete movies anymore because thanks to a seemingly neverending number of sequels Hollywood has managed to completely ruin the franchise.  Not only with the movies but also with POLICE ACADEMY - THE ANIMATED SERIES of which I saw an episode or two and which thankfully has been wiped from my memory for which I will forever be thankful.

And I also can´t talk about POLICE ACADEMY without mentioning the comic series by MARVEL that either only lasted for six issues or was a six issue miniseries to begin with.

Since it was a big movie franchise comic ( well, obviously according to somebody´s standard ) it was also published in Germany but as usual the covers were buried under a lot of lettering and other stuff.

I never read an issue and probably have an higher IQ because of that. Coming back to the movie series of POLICE ACADEMY I remember seeing the first one in the movie theater and coming out pretty overwhelmed because at that time it was really a novel concept. And I still think the first part holds up pretty well. Not that it´s the big cinematographic gem but it´s funny and entertaining if you haven´t seen the gags repeated in the other sequels. It sure launched a few careers since it brought Steve Guttenberg a big career boost and gave Bubba Smith and Michael Winslow their big break.

Although I have to confess I´m not sure what Michael Winslow is doing right now. I know he did some really bad german movies starring Thomas Gottschalk and written by Thomas Gottschalk ( who else would cast Thomas Gottschalk in a movie who didn´t owe him a favor ? ) but also better stuff like SPACEBALLS and ROBOT CHICKEN. Steve Guttenberg was pretty big in the 80s and 90s but to the current generation he´s probably best known for playing corrupt town mayor Woody Goodman on VERONICA MARS with the lovely Kristen Bell in the lead role of plucky successor to Nancy Drew, Veronica Mars. I guess I just appeared on all search engines because I mentioned Kristen Bell.

Speaking about VERONICA MARS, Charisma Carpenter also has a part on the show who is of course best known for playing Cordelia on BUFFY and later on ANGEL. Which brings us to Enrico Colantoni, who plays ex - sheriff / ex - private eye / new sheriff Keith Mars and he also was on an episode of BONES which is the new series of David Boreananz who plays FBI agent Seely Booth and who also played Angel first on BUFFY and then on ANGEL. And Kim Catrall - who later on had more SEX AND THE CITY - also appeared in the first POLICE ACADEMY movie. Like I said, it was pretty good but with each sequel the quality has gotten worse and worse and the only good parts were the ones with hot babes like Leslie Easterbrook  who plays megabusty police officer Debbi Callahan and who is one of the few reasons why anybody can suffer through these pieces.

Leslie Easterbrook´s secondbest clip is in POLICE ACADEMY 5 when she´s on the plane and two boys stare at her cleavage thinking her fast asleep. If you pay attention you see how she first yells at them. But then when they try to check her out again you can see her flashing a proud grin and pushing her boobs up a bit so they can get a good eyeful of her melons.

Which shows what a sense of humor Callahan has and that despite everything she´s still proud of her quite distracting breasts .

She probably got that from Leslie Easterbrook, the voluptuous actress who portrays Callahan and appears in most of the POLICE ACADEMY movies, who seems like the kind of actress I’d love to have lunch with. She knows exactly what kind of movies she’s in, and plays the part with a vicious commitment unseen in most comedies of this ilk. She’s perfectly o.k. with being objectified and in interviews seems amused and tickled at some of the things she’s had to do. Pragmatic, flirty, professional and practical, Easterbrook is one of the stars of the POLICE ACADEMY series and may well be one of the women who influenced my fixation on confident blondes with big breasts that kick ass like Power Girl.

Back to Leslie Easterbrook and her role as Callahan ( named after Clint Eastwood´s famous character Harry Callahan in DIRTY HARRY ) while she DID play the hot blonde she wasn´t the stupid bimbo. And to think that originally they wanted her character to be older and have a beard.

I had an audition and at that point Callahan was described as a 45 year old female Wayne Newton with a moustache. I was younger than 45, was blonde and had no moustache. So I had visions of, “ Well if they like me for this I may have to grow one ! ” And I think that may be the wrong hormone. So I looked at this material and it was very tough, it was a scene that’s not in the movie — very tough, mean, authoritative scene — and I had just finished doing Rhonda on Laverne and Shirley, and now here was this character who could control the world. She could beat up the guys, intimidate them with one look. I knew I had to become tough. I didn’t have the script, just the scene. I didn’t really know if I could play a tough guy. And I went up the stairs and you know, I didn’t dress real sexy, but I put on a tight shirt. And I did this silly scene and everyone stood up at the end of it, going," Oh it’s okay, stop, stop ! ” And I thought, my gosh, maybe that was a little over the top. I left there and thought I really loved playing that character because it was so far outside of my package of ammunition, so to speak, as an actor. I got a call three weeks later saying that they’re considering me for this and I thought, " Well, wonderful! This is really great! I’d love to play it. ” About a week later they sent me the script just to see if I would read it and if they decided to choose me, and I read this script and I literally cracked up, I just thought it was the funniest script I’d ever read. I just wanted to be a part of that. I gotta tell ya, I’ve been happy like that, but I don’t remember having that same feeling of elation, and I was just simply cast for that part from an audition, and the rest is history.

Leslie´s Callahan was kind of empowering for women, she was strong, intelligent, kick - ass tough as nails, independent and secure in her sexuality. Physically she was superior to most men who came across as rather stupid and one - minded most often suffering - or inflicting upon others - heavy injury while being distracted by her centerfold curves.

Like in the scene where this poor guy almost chokes to death because the beefcake who is supposed to be spotting him is checking her out instead.

He´s like totally transfixed by sexbomb Callahan spreading her legs wide open again and again and is probably thinking about what a world class breeding mare like her could do with a horny stud in his sexual prime.

Well, probably spoil him for all other women but he wouldn´t mind.

Callahan was the hunter and all others were the prey. Another movie that´s still sort of known and didn´t fall into obscurity only due to Leslie Easterbrook´s participation in it is PRIVATE RESORT in which Leslie already showed her big talents. Easterbrook first became famous as Rhonda Lee, the Marilyn - Monroe - like neighbor of Laverne & Shirley.

Among the television shows in which Leslie has appeared are FANTASY ISLAND, LOVE BOAT, MURDER SHE WROTE, HANGIN WITH MR COOPER, THE DUKES OF HAZZARD, MATLOCK, HUNTER, and BAYWATCH. Soap opera fans will remember her as Devlin Kowalski from RYAN´S HOPE. She also did voice work for the SUPERMAN and BATMAN animated series.

Her vocal talents led to her being chosen to sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl XVII and has landed her starring roles in musicals; she also recorded a song for the soundtrack of POLICE ACADEMY - MISSION TO MOSCOW. As an NRA member and accomplished sports shooter, she put together a video, REAL BEGINNER´S GUIDE TO THE SHOTGUN SPORTS, and has served on the board of directors of the California Rifle & Pistol Association. Leslie serves on the board of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, and supports a number of children's charities.

In 2005, Leslie replaced Karen Black in Rob Zombie's THE DEVIL´S REJECTS, the sequel to the 2003 horror movie HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES.

Leslie's intense portrayal proved her to be an excellent actress and the definitive Mother Firefly as a result she has been dubbed " Unrecognised horror queen. " Leslie was given the part of Mother Firefly after Karen Black demanded a higher salary, but Leslie Easterbrook took the part and made it her own, giving the performance a disturbing edge that Karen Black lacked. In 2007, she played security guard Patty Frost in Rob Zombie's remake of HALLOWEEN and in 2008, she played as Betty in the thriller / horror film HOUSE. And before we close the chapter on Leslie Easterbrook for good there have been some requests for an animated GIF from this scene from POLICE ACADEMY 3 - BACK IN TRAINING :

Once again, time to wrap things up since I have been writing waay too long on this post already. But as usual here are the shownotes with the websites without making this post would have been pretty difficult :

Well, the post was a bit all over the place but the next one will be more straightlined and about comics. Or not. Who knows with this blog. And I also hope nobody´s head exploded from erotic sensory overload by all the pictures of hot babes and if you still haven´t got enough you can click here for more Becky Mullen and here for the full part with Janet Jones .

We start the video section with a clip I couldn´t fit into the original post : the stunning Leslie Easterbrook rocking a swimsuit in PRIVATE RESORT where teenage Johnny Depp and Rob Morrow ( Joel Fleischmann on NORTHERN EXPOSURE and Don Epps on NUMBERS ) try hitting on her. She´s one of the reason why people still remember the movie.

And we´re staying with swimsuits but make a jump to german television. Yes, there are swimsuits in german tv like in this not so serious report about the reloaded waterslide world championship. There are four contestants and there are a few parts you can find on YouTube.

I couldn´t do this post without adding a wet t - shirt video so here is a little tribute to the hottest movie wet t - shirt moments. Of course Leslie Easterbrook scene from POLICE ACADEMY 4 is among those hopefuls.

Another hot bikini girl although I have to say I have no idea who she is or what her measurements are. On the other hand does it really matter ?

And we end this post with another wet t - shirt babe or better yet THE ultimate bikini babe Kimberly McCartney from a wet t - shirt competition in 1990 that - I think - was filmed by the same company that shot the BIKINI OPEN videos. When those videos were shown on german sports tv she was in my top five but I´d say if I did a ranking Today she would be my number one right behind blow up doll Mercedes. She´s soo hot !!!

Until I can make a post about my Top Ten bikini babes and the BIKINI OPEN ( which might have to be done in various parts as I have learned through this post - too many GIFs are murder on the upload time ) here is the video of Kimberly McCartney as well as two GIFs - just in case.

JLA casting - Jamie Chung special edition

Another post is finished which means it´s once again time for my Justice League of America Hollywood casting. This time it´s another solo post.

Now some people may cry foul to me including the Cassandra Cain Batgirl in this countdown since she was never an official member of the Justice League but as I already included the female Dr. Light just to have another asian actress on the cast as well as the original Batgirl - who also never was a member of the League I can also include the Batgirl I didn´t like. 

I didn´t hate her or anything - that was reserved for Stephanie Brown - but I just never managed to connect with her which for me is one of the main reasons to read a book. You have to connect on some level with the main character or he´s not going to be relatable to you. Which equals boring. And it doesn´t matter what it is. There is no one hundred percent match with an idol of millions but you may know how it feels to be an ugly thing shunned by humanity. You may not be the strongest one there is but you have your days where you just want to be left alone. And you may not be the daughter of the greatest magician and defender of Devil´s Echo but I bet anything you did was never good enough for your father either.

So you need this kind of connection with the main character and some readers may have been able to get that with Cassandra Cain - like my younger brother - but I never got past the bad writing and the wonky art. And I´m not even mentioning the disturbing masturbation Batgirl cover.

Of course in the movie she would stay mute. Talk about ruining Batgirl after the first few issues. If at least they had managed to give her some kind of personality. But everybody was written badly in the series even Robin Tim Drake. If you only realize that there´s a hot chick underneath that skintight latex costume when she drops that costume and instead wears Barbara Gordon´s old Batgirl costume - which is not as formfitting as Cassandra´s regular costume ...... you´re not a very good detective.

Maybe this was an american thing or something for the Batfans but you can´t tell me that you don´t notice how hot a woman is who wears a skintight latex costume - until she dons an unbecoming grey thing.

And then the ridiculous scene where she trips over her high heels. If that is supposed to show anything than it only demonstrates what a real badass Barbara Gordon really was as Batgirl. Yes, she took names and kicked ass with her long legs and she did it all in high heels, beyotch !

Anyway, I don´t want to go into the real Batgirl at length now because I already had her in this countdown. There are a few things I have to add but that will be done in the special Subzero edition but if you want to see more of Cassandra fooling around with Babara Gordon´s old costume here´s a post about it on SCANS DAILY . Thanks guys for providing this.

Longtime readers of the blog may already know about my predisposition for asian girls but this time the post has nothing to do with cosplay queen Yaya Han or other oriental sexbombs I mentioned on the blog before.

The simple reason why Jamie Chung got her solo post was that when I first made this post her entry was rather small. But then I added a few pictures because I wanted to pimp it a bit and then the usual happened.

The usual being that I found out a lot of interesting things about Jamie which make the post that much more interesting to read. But it likewise made the post longer and longer and combined with the usual tangents about things - comic related and not - in the end I had no choice but to give this it´s own post. Believe me, you absolutely don´t want to read the megalong posts these turn into before I cut them into parts. Yes, this also means that this series gets more and more installments but I can put em between my other strictly comic related posts. Well, if I had any strictly comic related posts. You know what I mean. But here I am, talking about not wanting long posts and still writing this longwinded introduction. So before you get too bored, here is our next - little - part of my Hollywood casting for a Justice League of America movie with a few additions.

Jamie Chung as Batgirl ( Cassandra Cain )

Like with casting Dr. Light it was difficult to find an asian actress for the Hollywood version. With the other edition it´s no problem : Miko Lee, Lena Li, Tera Patrick, Akira Lane, Christine Mendoza, Sasha Oagata, Minka ( !!! ), Jasmine Mai, Gail Kim, Yaya Han....the list is just endless .

Here it was not as easy but after doing some research I found somebody. It seems I am one of the few on the planet who waited a few years before finally watching DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION when it was on tv and my braincells are eternally grateful for that. But it seems the real reason why guys went to watch the movie was to catch a glimpse of Jamie Chung.

I don´t know if she got the martial arts skills to pull off the mute master assassin turned vigilante but  she was very believable as SIN CITY´s Miho.

I´m still miffed that Jessica Alba got the role of Nancy Callahan even though she refused to go topless. I mean, what the f - word was the producer smoking here ? Not that Jessica Alba is not sexy as all get out and knows how to move her blowup sex doll body like a professional. 

But she plays a stripper. Hello ? And what always pissed me off are movies with strippers who don´t take their clothes off. That´s just ridiculous.

There´s a simple rule to avoid all this : if you don´t want to take your clothes off DON´T PLAY A STRIPPER. Halle Berry played a stripper in THE LAST BOY SCOUT and she didn´t go topless but did a great striptease.

Demi Moore played a stripper in STRIPTEASE and she DID go topless.

Erika Eleniak played Playmate of the Month AND stripper Jordan Tate in the Steven Seagal movie UNDER SIEGE and her scorching hot topless striptease scene is the only reason the movies is still on television. 

And last but not least Elizabeth Berkley played a stripper who became a showgirl in SHOWGIRLS and not only went topless but got totally nude.

It´s true, some actresses play strippers and do not go topless but it is not very realistic. I know, I never have been one of the greatest advocates of realism in comic movies but I DO believe in staying true to the source material and in the SIN CITY comic Nancy is topless in every other scene.

That is how her character was written by Frank Miller and if you want to play her but you don´t want to go topless it´s simply not going to work.

Well, I hope the directors of SIN CITY, Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez at least had some fun with Jessica Alba auditioning on the casting couch.

Coming back to Jamie Chung on SIN CITY she was very believable in her role as deadly Miho but in my opinion she was underused in SIN CITY 2.

But Jamie Chung has even more comic book cred. Besides playing Chi Chi in DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION and Miho in the SIN CITY movies she also is the voice actress for Gogo Tomago in Disney´s version of BIG HERO 6.

And I´m saying Disney´s version of BIG HERO 6 because she looks quite different in the Marvel comics. As do all of the BIG HERO 6 in the movie.

I mean I can understand why Disney decided to do an animated movie with these characters but for my taste the story was too generic and would have probably worked with any group of characters. It is a good movie and quite entertaining but they totally wasted the potential here.

And on that note we return to our Justice League casting. Originally I picked Jamie Chung because she is hot but in hindsight it´s a really good choice because she has a lot more to offer than just her good looks.

And with that we wrap up another part of the JLA casting even if it was only a drop in the bucket. I mean we only managed to do ONE candidate. But as they say : one is better than none. So I hope this long post was as entertaining for you to read as it was educational for me to write this.

Todays video section starts with clips from my favorite Late Night show. At the moment I have no other place where I can find them so I have to watch it on YouTube. Here is the first one with Jamie in a gorgeous dress.

Another Craig Ferguson clip, this time she is promoting SIN CITY 2.

And if that´s not your thing here is a Jamie Chung interview in a bikini.

Since this is a Justice League movie I wanted to post the trailer for Bruce Timm´s new animated movie JUSTICE LEAGUE : GODS AND MONSTERS. When this was announced I was all exicted because I thought he was the right man to do a Justice League movie how it ought to be done. But judging from the trailer this is not really a Justice League movie at all.

So to have SOMETHING with the real Justice League in it here´s another 1967 cartoon from Lou Scheimer´s legendary FILMATION studio. This time it´s the first episode of The Atom : Invasion of the Beetle - Men.
