Malin Akerman — Crush of the Day
May 12th was Malin’s 34th birthday. The Canadian actress of Swedish descent got into modeling and acting at the age of 5, and actually won the Ford Model Search in Canada at 17. The Great White North decided to keep her from us until she portrayed Freak Show’s wife in 2004’s ‘Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle’. Now, we can’t look at Oreo’s Double Stuff without getting awkwardly aroused.
Unfortunately, we’d have to wait a whole three years before we got to see her first starring role as Ben Stiller’s rebound wife in ‘The Heartbreak Kid’. We can’t fault Ben’s character for rushing into the holy bonds with that bombshell.
She made us question Vince Vaughn’s sexuality in 2009’s ‘Couples Retreat’ and she had our Nite Owl hooting in ‘Watchmen’.
What sets her apart from most smokeshows is her comical side, which is on full display as Dr. Valerie Flame in Adult Swim’s late night series ‘Children’s Hospital’.
Recently, she’s appeared on the covers of Maxim’s May 2012 issue and Shape’s June 2012 issue. She’s also been spotted at the Tribeca Film Festival and a host of other red carpet screenings of blockbuster movies
We’re looking forward to her roles in ‘Rock of Ages’ and ‘Stolen’, but we’re feverishly pressing fast forward to catch her playing Linda Lovelace in the porn star’s biopic set to release in 2013 (even though it might not happen).
