Fan of Friday: Week of 11/11/11

Do you remember a couple of years ago when NBC brought back American Gladiators? I loved it and I'm sad they only brought it back for two seasons (seriously, it's better than 90% of the programming they currently air). Anyway, one of the Gladiators was named Crush and she was undefeated in her tenure. She was awesome.

Her real name is Gina Carano she's an undefeated MMA fighter. And, as of Januart 20th, 2012, she'll be a movie star. Director Steven Soderbergh handpicked her for the lead in his movie "Haywire". Basically, she plays the female Jason Bourne, only without the amnesia. It has an amazing cast, too. Ewan McGregor, Channing Tatum, Michael Douglas, Bill Paxton, Antonio Banderas, and Michael Fassbender (300, X-Men, just plain yummy).

Anyway, Entertainment Weekly released a new trailer for it this week and I can officially say this is the first movie in a long time I'm actually looking forward to seeing.
