Elisha Cuthbert


  1. Kirsten Dunst, Spider Man, 2002.
  2. Keri Russell, Mission: Impossible III, 2005.  When Tom Cruise postponed everything  to make Spielberg’s War of the Worlds,  Scarlett quit for  successive Woody Allen movies. Lindsay Farris was then aimed at Jessica Alba, Elisha Cuthbert, Lindsay Lohan… and Katie Holmes, who won Cruise instead. (They wed  during 2006-2012).  Finally,  Russell was selected. Easily. She had headlined the new M:I auteur JJ Abram’s TV series, Felicity, 1998-2002.
  3. Kate Bosworth, Superman Returns, 2006.
  4. Bryce Dallas Howard, Spider Man 3, 2006.
  5. Christina Ricci, Speed Racer, 2007. Also on the grid for the racing hero’s gal, Trixie – complete with pink helicopter (shades of Lady Penelope and/or Reese Witherspoon) – were Cuthbert, Rose McGowan, Kate Mara. Speed, himself, kept changing from Johnny Depp and Zac Efron to Shia Labeouf and Joseph Gordon-Levitt… and, finally, Emile Hirsch, a long time fan of the 1967-1968 Japanese anime series series.
