Catch a Rising Star
Know who that is? If you don't, it looks like you will in a few years time.
Zoe Saldana is probably best known at this point for being the girl who isn't Keira Knightley in Pirates of the Caribbean or for being that girl from that bad Ashton Kutcher movie, but she's starring in 2 of the highest profile movies of the next few years: JJ Abrams' Star Trek (scheduled release 2008) and James Cameron's Avatar (scheduled release 2009).
It's nice to see a black actress not trapped in the Hollywood casting vortex of playing girlfriend to Will Smith or Denzel Washington in action movies.
Who knows? Maybe she's our next Sigourney Weaver...not that we need a new one because Sigourney is still amazing. I'm just sayin'.
