Ironically, I believe that this sublime shot of Julianne Moore originates from the movie in which she shares some screen time with Dirk D... ah, Mark Wahlberg... one memorable scene has Marky Mark weeping oceans (lest it is like a baby) in Julianne's lap...

Julianne does make me forget all about my earliest choice to play Mera... Saffron Burrows.

I really did forget all about Saffron (whose name is so... unforgettable - and tied into the color orange incidentally; a very important aqua-color, somehow... don't ask the logic behind it for there is none surely! Just go with it as another example of four-color logic... and what appears to be "normal" within the context of a comic-book -especially a Golden Age one- rarely is so in real-life... Too bad Mort Weisinger, Paul Norris and Julius Schwartz are not around anymore to confirm this...).

To get back to Saffron Burrows though... I doubt her lover, Fiona Shaw, will make the same mistake that Ellen DeGeneres made with Anne Heche... Ellen thought that Anne's steamy heterosexual sex scenes in the remake of Psycho were not going to affect their couple one bit - and it evidently did. It spelled the end of "A & E" it did...! Fiona does her Harry Potter films... Saffron will do as Radha Mitchell did and let herself get typecast into cute sapphically-inclined ingenue... No chance of that including a role as a Sea Queen, thus, and having her cavorting in the depths with a blond he-man... nope... I don't think so!

And before feminists, bi-partisans and their like swarm upon me for my theory on what split up "A & E" - Anne Heche's cavorting with the eventual one-note hero of LOTR (...) - well, let me add this explanation... Being in emulated close intomate contact with a woman (Joan Chen) in a previous film "awakened that side of her" for Miss Heche... the reverse is likely true too.

(Ask Joan Chen - she believes she is responsible for Anne's tour of duty on the other side of the fence... yes... and I think she's right on that).

Likewise, Saffron Burrows may well have her "other aspect of her sexuality" (shaken and) stirred if she were to do likewise - she did state that she preferred the company of women but she has been with men before (and has broken their hearts too).

Heck... even Melissa Etheridge likes Brad Pitt...

Just remembered another ''old contender'' for the coveted (?) role of Mera... I always thought that Angie Everhart could fill those shoes... or regal swimwear... or hair!

Just like the Queen of England, all she would have to do is wave at the crowds... surely Angie can do so much - no?

Now of course, with the recent revision in terms of treatment that Queen Guinevere got - not to mention this trend of ''warrior princesses'' ever since whatshername - Queen Mera has to toughen up quite considerably - and a real actress is needed... which disqualifies Miss Everhart I guess...

True ''old choices'' for the part would have to be actresses that are from the same era as previous fan choices to play the Sea King... Sea Hunt's Llyod Bridges or Nick Nolte (when he co-starred in ''The Deep'' - the movie that begat wet t-shirt contests, thanks to Jacqueline Bisset!)

From Bridges' era, Rhonda Fleming and Deborah Kerr would have been magnificent Meras...

From Nolte's days... Fionnula Flanagan maybe? The two of them had an intimate encounter in the first ever major TV mini-series, Rich Man, Poor Man
Aside from her... I am drawing a blank here... Jill St-John? Too flimsy to be a queen...

Who else was there...?

Makes me think of yet MORE choices for the role of MERA... that TIME & TIDE FORGOT! *lol*

ANGIE EVERHART is a natural bodacious redhead - alas, she is just TOO TALL!
Plus, she had the misfortune of doing cult favorite horror flick Bordello of Blood in which she portrayed nothing less than... THE FIRST REDHEAD... LILITH!
(Queen of the demons according to Jewish folklore... originally a Sumerian or Babylonian demi-goddess... and here, in this Tales of the Crypt film featuring Dennis Miller as its sole "hero" of service, Lilith was the Queen of Vampires... vampire-whores that is, with a definite disdain for the male gender. Yikes...).

Forget the fact that Angie was anything BUT regal or angelic in this role - forget even the sad fact that she became a B-movie staple who will consistently do nudity in them now... the mere fact that she WAS Lilith makes her unfit to be Mera now!

Angie Everhart may be dating and even fiancéed to ACTUAL ROYALTY today (Prince Albert of Monaco, I believe - meek man but still better as a Prince than Prince Namor! *lol*) but she is not Seq Queen material... maybe Queen of Monaco material... but then, Monaco is so very small...

The other redhead time forgot is one ANGELICA BRIDGES, formerly (i.e. briefly) of *Baywatch* fame... Seems like a perfect match, again, character/actress... but think again now! The lady can barely host on TBS - much less can she act. Miss Bridges also has the stygma -in my book it is- to have been married to a MONTREAL CANADIENS player!!! One ruffian named Sheldon Souray (not to be confused with good guy Sheldon Kennedy - former NHL player and former Boston Bruin!) - Souray roughed up his bride and she left him recently... being with him hampered her career, as she resided in dead-end (in the entertainment world, it sure is a ghetto at the very least!) Montreal... while she SHOULD have been in Beverly Hills, where her agent is! Well, she is back there now... with baby in tow.

Alas, her acting is not up to par - her natural redheadedness is not enough! Nor is her ability to fill out a bathing suit - which she reatains, somewhat, after giving birth to the spawn of Souray (!)...

Look for pictures of both Angie and Angelica in the archives here - i.e. posts that were post-dated and confined to the archives right away! ;)
