In a very short amount of time, Zoe Saldana has had quite the run. Her roles in “Star Trek” and the upcoming ‘Star Trek Into Darkness” is making her a household name. She starred in a little film called “Avatar” from James Cameron. Despite some missteps, I’m looking at you “Colombiana”, “The Words” and the vastly underrated “The Losers”, she’s been able to keep her hot streak going. Now she joins Chris Pratt as Star-Lord and Dave Bautista as Drax the Destroyer in “Guardians of the Galaxy”. She’ll play Gamora, a sword wielding green humanoid. James Gunn is helming the big budget adaptation.
