It was an easy win for Linda Cardellini
in last week's battle. Somehow I thought that by mixing up the actresses and presenting a variety, there might be diverse results. How about we try that again, this time with some of Ben Stiller's women, shall we? (Oh, and get your asses out and go watch TROPIC THUNDER. The Olympics aren't all that
She's been Ben's go-to bitch from back in the day and whether or not you agree with her politics has nothing to do with Garofalo's dead on knack for making you laugh, especially in combination with Stiller. However, with a quirky look and a resistance to being typecast into THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS AND DOGS kinda roles (although I liked that movie), Garofalo has focused more on her comedy career and radio presence lately. Still, she has that certain something to her which is hard to ignore.
There was something so special about Christine that Ben actually stopped and took the time to marry and make babies with her. I'll most fondly remember Taylor as the spot-on parody of Maureen McCormack as Marcia Brady in the BRADY BUNCH movies. But she's also been Ben's foil in ZOOLANDER and DODGEBALL, where she's able to at least deflect some of his manic energy. As for the rest of her career without him? Well, is there really a lot of conversation that we could devote to ROOM 666?
OK, so in my personal opinion I'm making this week a little easier to decide by throwing in Ben's recent co-star in the family friendly hit NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM. (And don't worry fans and/or parents of the fans! They're making a sequel, only this time the lucky bastard gets to co-star with Amy Adams.) Carla, Carla, Carla... Whatever there is to be said about her stands true in her work on screen (from SPY KIDS mom to lesbo hotness in SIN CITY). She's another fine wine actress and we're damn lucky to have her.
So... your choice for hottest babe this week would be...?
