- THE AVENGERS LINKS UP WITH A MENTALIST
The Avengers has reportedly added another TV babe to its ranks in addition to Cobie Smulders.
The Daily Blam claims that The Mentalist's Amanda Righetti has been cast in an unspecified role in the Joss Whedon-directed film.
According to the site, "the current buzz has her pegged as either Carol Danvers -- also known to comic fans as the superpowered heroine Ms. Marvel -- or Sharon Carter, niece of Peggy Carter who is played by Hayley Atwell in Captain America and acts as Steve Rogers' WWII partner and love interest." We think the latter makes more sense.
In addition to The Mentalist, Righetti's credits include Friday the 13th, Role Models, The O.C., North Shore, Reunion and Return to House on Haunted Hill.
