Jordana Brewster — Crush of the Day
We have reason to celebrate! Super hot ‘Fast & Furious’ babe Jordanna Brewster will grace our TV screens every week with a major role in TNT’s new ‘Dallas’ revamp, which premiered last night.
The Brazilian-American actress, who we last saw in ‘Fast Five’ and in a recurring role on NBC’s ‘Chuck,’ plays Elena Ramos, the ambitious daughter of the Southfork Ranch chef who is caught in a love triangle between the show’s to male leads. (Yeah, ‘Dallas’ is still pretty damn soapy. And silly.)
Brewster was the first non-original series cast member to land a part on the show, setting a high standard for all the other SouthFork hotties who’ll be wheeling and dealing on the new version of the classic Texas-set soap.
‘Dallas’ is a bit of a homecoming for Brewster, who started acting on soaps as a teen before landing a major part in director Robert Rodriguez’s high school horror flick ‘The Faculty’ (Good eye, Rodriguez!). A feature film career followed, with lead parts in three ‘Fast & Furious’ movies, with another reportedly on the way, and a role as one of Leatherface’s most-wanted on ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.’
One of our favorite Brewster flicks is ‘D.E.B.S.,’ a cartoonish spy spoof in which she plays a sexy lesbian criminal mastermind. Really.
Until Hollywood decides to make a sequel to ‘D.E.B.S.,’ we’ll have to settle for watching Brewster speeding away in the ‘Fast & Furious’ flicks and steaming up SouthFork on ‘Dallas.’
