[VIDEO] Gina Carano Returns to the Small Screen in February on Almost Human


(Thanks to CP reader Steven Wong for the tip/image.)

Good news, Taters! Former MMA starlet Gina Carano is making her triumphant return to the world of television and all we can say is Hnnnnnng

Carano, who is coming of a successful turn in Fast and Furious 6*, will guest star on the next episode of Almost Human, the future cop/Robocop buddy cop show on FOX. If the episode promo after the jump is to be believed, it looks like Carano will be playing an emotionless cyborg killing machine that has gone off the reservation…Haywire, you might even say. (*sad rimshot*)

Carano also has two projects currently in the works — In the Blood (a.k.a female Taken) and an untitled Adi Shankar project (a.k.a female Expendables). It’s always nice to see an old friend finding employment, but especially so when that friend is Gina Carano and that work involves corsets and fishnets.

The next episode of Almost Human airs February 3rd on FOX, so join us after the jump for a sneak peak.

Caranowatch: Former Gladiator-Turned-Fighter-Turned-Actress to Add “Superhero” to Her Resume


(Regardless of which direction Carano chooses to take this character, SUCCESS.) 

I know, I know, but just shut your mouths and listen for a second.

On the heels of a memorable role in the highly successful Fast and Furiousix and with two other projects currently in development, the newly single Gina Carano is less a budding star and more the next, Angelina Jolie, I guess? For the life of me, I cannot think of one actress I would consider an action star……..(*snap*) Sigourney Weaver! Gina Carano is the next Sigourney Weaver.

Aaaaanyway, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Carano will now be looking to add the title of “superhero” to her ever-growing film resume in the near future. The former MMA star is teaming up with comic book writer Rob Liefeld to bring his Avengelyne character to life on the silver screen, so they report:

Carano and Liefeld will be at Comic-Con on Saturday to meet with fans and sign posters that feature Carano as the character.

Carano and Liefeld are reconceiving and rebuilding the title into a starring vehicle for Carano, and the movie project is intended to be in the vein of Underworld, the popular vampire-vs.-werewolves franchise starring Kate Beckinsale.

A search for a writer or a writer-director to adapt Avengelyne will begin next week.

Gina Carano’s Next Big Movie Project is…


(Just marvel at it.) 

Gentlemen, rejoice. It’s been a while since we’ve reported on the lovely Ms. Gina Carano, mainly due to the fact that she’s never coming back to us, and we’re incredibly bitter about it. But be that as it may, we wish Gina the best of luck on her newly chosen path, and despite the fact that next to none of you were devoted enough fans to catch her big screen debut last January, it appears that “Conviction” already has another role in a major film lined up. As we have come to understand, anytime Gina is placed in front of a camera is reason enough to celebrate, and her next project is sure to drag mindless, movie-going audiences in by the droves.

Check out the full scoop after the jump, along with a completely unrelated video that will surely brighten your afternoon.

The Unpopular Opinion: Let Fighters Be Actors…For As Long As They Can Pull It Off

Rampage JacksonMr. T
(Someone’s got big bracelets to fill.)

Fighting and acting have at least one thing in common: most people see trained professionals in action so often that it makes them think the job is a lot easier than it really is.  That could be part of what’s luring fighters like “Rampage” Jackson and Gina Carano out of the cage and onto the movie set.  Money is also a big part of it, as is the opportunity to get paid without getting beaten up.  The downside, at least for the fans, is that we have about as much interest in seeing our favorite fighters act as we do in seeing our favorite actors fight. 

No, I take that back.  I’d much rather see Val Kilmer get in the cage than watch Randy Couture glare his way through another “Scorpion King” movie, but I digress.
