I am digging on the recent trend that is going down in Hollywood... while there will always be a new flood of young people sloshing down the entertainment channel, this uptake on casting actresses who have history and real age is feeling good. So let's look at one of them, an underrated actress... underrated hottie?
I like chick flicks just as much as any chick, but not in the most churned beefcake kind of manner. If it stars Channing Tatum, was adapted from a Nicholas Sparks book or portrays Katherine Heigl as an uptight shrew, I'm not interested. But when it's a low budget project of love like NEXT STOP WONDERLAND, where I first laughed and reveled at how good Callie Thorne was (not to mention continued my deep devotion to Phillip Seymour Hoffman). I've been drawn to her ever since, with that unmistakable husky voice of hers.
Now that they've added The Stamos to Thorne's USA vehicle, "Necessary Roughness," I've been seeing her all over the place and I love that fact. She's been a television staple for years, from "ER," to "The Wire," to "Prison Break," to "Rescue Me." Sexy with that self-poise which speaks before she even opens her mouth, it's always a pleasure to watch her at work.
Looks wise: Huge plus that you can tell any touch-ups done to her face were from Photoshop and not Botox. Naturally slender, never married, no kids, raised by a single mom and possessing the amazing mutt genetics of Armenian, Italian, Portuguese and Assyrian. She looks real. She oozes with a sensuality that turns watching her shows into a flavor experience for your senses better than any show on Food Network. But that's just me.
What do you think of Callie Thorne?
