Haven’t seen enough Kim Kardashian on your TV and in your news over the last 12 months? Well then do I have some good news for you. Kardashian had a number of comments to make about a prospective new career while red carpeting around at the SAG awards. She started her threats by telling E! cameras, “I love acting”, which seems like it could have been harmless enough chitchat if she hadn’t also claimed, “There are a few offers on the table, but I definitely want to make the right decision for the right part.” And what could that “right part” be? Well, genre fans, get ready to weep.
When describing what her “ultimate” film role would be, Kardashian said, “I would love to be in a Bond film… a Bond Girl!” I just felt a great disturbance in The Force, like thousands of Bond fans cried out, and then were silenced.
But that’s not the last of the warning signs that have led me to raise the Kardashian Threat Level from Moderate to Severe; Kardashian has also taken her quest for employment straight to the King of the World himself, James Cameron, via Twitter. After Cameron recently opened an account on the social news service, Kardashian quickly contacted him by saying, “@JimCameron! I’m ready for my leading role in 3D! LOL.” Cameron responded publically only with the non-committal, “Kim, you’re already in 3D! See you on #Sanctum 2.” For now, this may have been a crisis averted, but it is only a matter of time before some desperate producer tries to milk the Kardashian uber-exposure and we see her face on billboards promoting some sort of film project.
So what is your dream Kim Kardashian film role? Cozying up to Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem as the next Bond girl? Covered in blue paint playing some sort of Na’vi pop star in the Avatar sequel? Maybe, there’s still time to get her in playing Lois Lane opposite Henry Cavill in the new Superman movie. Oh God.
