Zoe Saldaña kicks some serious butt in her new film Colombiana. Born in New York City, she also spent a good part of her life growing up in The Dominican Republic, so to all my friends In The Dominican Republic who like to tango too much, don’t cross this girl especially when she has a gun, because she can shoot, “sabes”. Zoe got her first break in the 2000 film Center Stage, followed by Pirates of the Caribbean, Star Trek, and a starring role as Neytiri in James Cameron’s Avatar, the highest-grossing film of all time. Zoe has also done her part for that all American brand Calvin Klein.
Hollywood goes through it’s own mood swings. There was a time if you did Television you could not do Feature Films, so many actors have proven that to be all need I spell it out. Then those Hollywood agents got into the act and balked at the prospect of their client sharing the screen with another star, that went out to the wind. Then there is that Hollywood saying “Can she carry the film?”. In the case of Zoe, she carried the film and all you wanted really in Colombiana was Zoe to just go wild with action and do serious damage which she did. Looking at her in a body suit and slipping and sliding through air vents, your mind thinks “She moves like a cat!”, and you wonder wow! she really would have made a great Catwomen, but that role my friends has gone to Anne Hathaway. Zoe! you need to come to Toronto, yes it’s the film festival but more importantly you need to try some of the food from Chef Brad Long at his Café and Bistro. After all it’s all about the food as you so well put it in the Calvin shoot. Zoe Saldaña, is full of life, and the people of The Dominican Republic are family, that would make Zoe my sister. So Zoe from MY Name is Khan “What Up?”.
