Hmm, guess that means no sequel any time soon, and 2. I wonder who they'll get to play the roles made famous by the stunningly photogenic pair known as Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Well, based on the news that Moviehole.net just dished out, the female half of the equation has been set ... and it's a lovely one indeed.
Panamanian mega-cutie Jordana Brewster has been cast as Mrs. Smith. And if the name and this pic aren't enough to jog your memory, I'm hoping you'll remember the beautiful Ms. Brewster from her work in movies like The Faculty, The Fast and the Furious, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning and (ugh) Annapolis. For those looking for some evidence as to Jordana's skills with quips and/or guns, feel free to give the sunny little indie flick D.E.B.S. a rental. (Not a great film, but a colorfully fun one.)
No word yet on who'll be playing Mrs. Smith's other half when the duo hits the small screen, but I'd be expecting an announcement sooner than later: ABC wants to have the Smith series ready for broadcast this autumn.
