Rachel Nichols gives Conan some much-needed sex appeal

Mar. 5, 2010by: Mike Sampson

This is perhaps the best news I've read this week - Rachel Nichols (GI JOE, STAR TREK) has signed on to star in Marcus Nispel's CONAN. She'll star as Tamara, a master of martial arts who has been trained to be the queen's servant (who eventually falls in love with Conan). If previous CONAN films are any indication, Ms. Nichols will be no doubt be wearing some pretty revealing outfits.

Nichols joins the previously cast Jason Momoa and Mickey Rourke in the film being set up by Millennium Films (which will likely ship the film to Lionsgate to distribute). Though I love the casting of Nichols in the Conan universe (which specializes in tall, buxom and beautiful women), I haven't been too blown away by much else. Rourke is a solid choice for Corin, the father of Conan, but I'm still skeptical about the choice of Momoa.

Filming on CONAN is expected to begin later this month in Bulgaria. Presumably some time in 2011 Paramount will have Nichols back starring in GI JOE 2. (STAR TREK, GI JOE and CONAN on one actresses resume? She could retire and live off the nerd convention money for the rest of her life...)

Extra Tidbit: Nichols is a fan of JoBlo.com and openly lobbied Paramount for her GI JOE teaser poster to debut on our site.

If she wasn't all-around-awesome already, that just blew her through the f*ckin' roof.

She's freaking hot, so good choice. However, since this project has Pg-13 written all over it... I don't think we'll get to see anything. Seriously... what I want to see in a Conan movie is blood, swords, barbarian hotties aand topless female slaves.

YES! This is the only positive bit of news associated with this POS-sounding POS I've heard so far.

She made even P2 worth watching.

Rachel was also in Alias, another nerd favorite.

This is actually one of the only remakes I'm excited for. Plus, it's one of the few where the original hasn't been realesed in the last 3 years. I hope Arnie has a cameo.

I love her. She's perfect in every way. When I first saw her as the babysitter in the Amityville Remake I could not take my eyes off her.

The lovely RACHEL NICHOLS made both ''P2'' and ''THE AMITYVILLE HORROR''watchable,and I highly suspect she'll be the best thing about the '' CONAN ''flick as well!!
