Rashida has been voted #55 in AskMen's Top 99 Most Desirable Women of 2011. It's a pretty good result as she is ranked higher than Angelina Jolie, Halle Berry and Minka Kelly, among others. This is the 10th edition of the list and over 5 million votes were cast worldwide. Check out her entry with pics and video here. Thanks to Ara for the tip :)
Rashida Jones for Lois Lane?!?
Now that Henry Cavill has been cast in the Superman reboot everyone is wondering who will play Lois Lane - is Rashida a contender? There's been a groundswell of support on the interwebs, e.g. Entertainment Weekly (see below), The Week, Comic Book Movie, Racialicious, Den of Geek, Blastr, lots of tumblrs etc. Most of it is fan spec based on her resemblance to Margot Kidder but Comic Book Movie says she is "auditioning" for the role. Don't know how "official" or accurate that is though...
Entertainment Weekly: Superman Readers' Choice
I'm putting my hat in the ring for Rashida Jones. She's beautiful in a way that's both intelligent and sexy, and could effortlessly meld the committed and hard-driving moral code of Lois Lane with a modern this-army-brat-can-kick-your-ass sensibility. I also think she could play up Lois' more purposeful, intense side. Part of what made the Kidder/Reeve charm was that Lois was the serious one, and Superman/Clark was more lighthearted and had a bigger sense of humor. —spmsmith
