What a difference a rumor makes. After rumors circulated about South African actress Tanit Phoenix reading for the “Wonder Woman” role, interest in her on the Nerdage blog skyrocketed, with Tanit Phoenix coming in at No. 8 on Nerdage’s list of actresses with geek appeal.
The model-turned-actress had a busy 2010, appearing in “Lost Boys: The Thirst” and “Death Race 2,” among others. She now appears on Showtime’s “Femme Fatales” as Lilith.
According to IMDB, she’s set to appear in “Latin Quarter,” about the wild youth of Pablo Picasso, with Wilmer Valderrama and Martin Landau. Also upcoming for Phoenix is “Safe House,” starring Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, set for release in Feb. 2012.
It looks like even without star-spangled underwear, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Tanit Phoenix in the future.
