Eva Mendes has been cast in Frank Miller's movie adaptation of Will Eisner's The Spirit.  It must be rough getting typecast as "the hot chick everyone wants to bone" all the time. 

Mendes will play Sand Saref, the only woman who could break the Spirit’s heart. Sand’s father was accidentally killed by the Spirit’s uncle, which pretty much ended their teenage romance.

The Spirit follows a detective (Gabriel Macht) who fakes his own death in order to fight crime in Central City as the masked avenger.

Where would we be without masked avenger movies?  Sometimes I like to wear a mask and attend sexy swingers parties as my alter ego, Ferret Dick.
