OK, so here's the deal. SEX & THE CITY 2
is getting released this weekend and since it has two extra sets of tits over Jakey-Poo and Gemma, I can guarantee Johnny Moreno's bar tab that it's going to take the top spot at the box office. (And I'm really shit out of luck if it doesn't.) The only thing that I've found that most people are in agreement about when it comes to the powerful 4 ladies from New York is that you're all sick of them and so... let me recast the movie more to your preferred actresses over 40, mmm'kay?
Of course we've got to ditch SJP. As much as I will admit that I watched the show and ultimately liked it as a whole, she's the weakest link when it comes to probable billing. I say that Carrie Bradshaw should have been a little less squeamish for a chick who was banging all those dudes and a little more intelligent just by the look of her. So forget about the one thing SJP had going for her (the rack) and add a woman with more class and sex appeal and you've got Maria Bello playing a much more appetizing Carrie. Can you dig it?
If you were to have taken "Sex & the City" and used a young Kim Cattrall during her early years you might have had a babe that guys wanted to bang until the light fixtures fell out of the drywall. But you need someone older to play the wizened Samantha Jones, so I say get Michelle Pfeiffer, a babe who aged into her hotness, actually getting better like wine and losing much of that bug-eyed quality that she started off with when she was younger. More plausible as Samantha and definitely someone who could turn any of the younger Schmoes into instant Ashtons.
What I point out about Cynthia Nixon, in my fangirl geek manner, is that she's a natural blonde who dyed her hair for the show because they didn't want to have 3 blondes on set. Thus, the infamous powerhouse redhead Miranda Hobbes was born. She's in charge of her sexuality but it's a creeping kind, one that takes a back seat to how strong and powerful she perceives herself to be in other matters. Who better to be that redhead, smart, sassy and sharp as well as sexually uninhibited than Julianne Moore?
Now for uptight and prissy little WASP Charlotte York... while I'd love to say that there was a massive pool of brunette cougars for me to pick and choose from, I must admit that I couldn't resist coming back over and over again to Famke Janssen, even if she's far more exotic than most people remember the character to be. However, she's also a very sly actress who has been able to stun with a variety of roles, so I don't believe that it's beyond her to don a preppy plaid outfit with a little doggy to match. Plus it would be fun to see her unravel that smile of hers as she slowly learns her New York lessons and becomes the perfect mother and housewife that all dudes wish could greet them when they get home from work.
It's a bonus feature for you guys this week. Which of the recast S&TC babes tickles your fancy the most?
