Yvonne Strahovski to play a scientist, a sexy scientist, in I, Frankenstein

11.18.2011

When you think of scientists working on reanimating the dead, you think of a crazysexy babe like Yvonne Strahovski, right? Good! Strahovski has signed onto Lionsgate's I, FRANKENSTEIN to play just such a scientist alongside Frankenstein's monster (Aaron Eckhart).

Strahovski's scientist is enjoying her work attempting to reanimate dead human flesh, when she's recruited by an evil demon (Bill Nighy) to create an army of the undead. The only man who can stop them? Frankenstein! And his friend, the Queen of the Gargoyles (Miranda Otto). No, I'm not making this up!

With her run on "Chuck" coming to an end, Strahovski is looking to make a shift to the big-screen, following up on her role in THE KILLER ELITE. She just wrapped the Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand comedy MY MOTHER'S CURSE and will go on to shoot FRANKENSTEIN early next year in Australia for writer/director Stuart Beattie.

Meanwhile, if you want to see what'll be going on behind that blood splattered lab coat, I encourage you to check out this gallery.

man, she is so awful and annoying. sure, still beautiful. but yeah.
can't act at all (granted i only know her from the awful show chuck and mass effect 2).
"just because she's beautiful she can't act"
no, not because she's beautiful, but because she can't act.
there are several beautiful women in hollywood who can act (naomi watts e.g.)

Of course i'm biased, being a Chuck fan, but i really believe she's one of the most talented under 30's right. It's great she gets a chance!

So just because she's beautiful she can't act? Since when is that an issue here on Joblo? I think we should give her a chance.

Its not that she cant act, its just a slightly weird choice for the role. It could turn out though, who knows.

Wait..she's playing Dr. Frankenstein?
Are we supposed to buy that like Denise Richards playing a nuclear physicist?
Its not that she isnt talented, far from it. It is just a very strange casting and one Im having a hard time picturing.
