Minka Kelly and Rachael Taylor are in negotiations to play the other two Angels in the ABC remake of “Charlie’s Angels,” joining the previously cast Annie Ilonzeh. Kelly, of course, is widely known for her roles in “Friday Night Lights” and falling into the perverted clutches of Derek Jeter. Taylor is an Australian actress you might not remember from Transformers because, you know, Megan Fox was onscreen, too.
Kelly was a name the producers kept coming back to and they are now reworking the role to tailor it to her. In the current breakdown, the character, previously named Marisa, is described as a former U.S. Marine, a weapons expert trained in all forms of hand-to-head combat and a neat freak.
Taylor’s Abby is the youngest and sassiest of the Angels, the beautiful and privileged dauther of a notorious Wall Street crook who is an expert con artist herself as well as a Krav Maga expert. [Deadline]
Needless to say, if women in the Marines looked like Minka Kelly, I’d still be on active duty. “Lack of hot chicks” was my primary reason for getting out of the service.
And poor Rachael Taylor. Overshadowed by arguably the sexiest woman in the world in Transformers, and now she’ll be sharing the small screen with the official Sexiest Woman in the World. Can’t a smoking hot blonde Australian girl catch a break?
