The Grizzly’s Spotlight: Summer Glau

Summer Glau. Non-Geeks may not be overly familiar with her work, but if you needed a reason to pick her for the 3rd ever ‘Grizzly Girl’ you need look no further than her next project: Knights of Badassdom. Not only is this one of the best movie titles I’ve ever heard, but if I didn’t know better I’d think I had cast this movie myself. Some of her co-stars include Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Steve Zahn (Saving Silverman), Jimmi Simpson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), and Danny Pudi (Community). I already can’t wait…

Natalie is arguably THE current ‘Queen of Geeks’. Just think about it – She made out with Thor, helped V execute a revolution, and gave birth to Luke Skywalker. What more do you want?

The Grizzly’s Spotlight: Mary Elizabeth Winstead

This is the start of another weekly feature here at the Griz. It basically means we’re selling out for hits, but hey – take it where you can get it. So every week we’ll feature another gorgeous woman who, aside from her looks, has a resume equally as impressive…or at least not terrible.

To start things off we’re gonna go with one of my favorite current actresses:

Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Mary is a true ‘Scream Queen‘ in the making. She has cemented her career with horror movies and geek bait, and should be around for several years to come.

Why We Love Her – The Best of her Resume
– Monster Island (2004)
– The Ring Two (2005)
– Final Destination 3 (2006)
– Black Christmas (2006)
– Grindhouse: Death Proof (2007)
– Live Free or Die Hard (2007)
– Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)

– Smashed (2012)
– Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

Other Notable Roles…

– Make It Happen (2008)

Also, currently in Post-Production, she’s snagged the lead in a prequel of John Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’, (which of course is based off The Thing from Another World) releasing later this year. And she’ll have a major role in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as “Mary Todd Lincoln”. Very Cool.

“Baby, It’s You” – I love this song…

Originally sung by the Beatles, there is actually a really good remake of this in Death Proof by Smith.

So anyhow, the Eye Candy. Here are some of my favorite Mary Elizabeth Winstead Pics…

That’s it for this week.
