JLA casting : cult siren Sarah Louise Young

This is another solo post from my special SUBZERO edition of casting the JLA movie and as always I have nobody else to blame for this but myself.

I mean I could have just copy pasted the part from my original post, cut the inappropriate parts and leave it at that. But no, I had to include her biography since the younger generations have no idea who she is, then I had to add some pictures because that would have been a very long text block, and then I added some videos - well, the end of the story was that her part of the post became that long that I put it in a post of her own.

So here´s my reminisence about one of the biggest - and also one of my alltime favorites - porn stars on the planet during my teenage years :

Sarah Louise Young as Wonder Woman ( Diana Prince )

I guess I have to explain this candidate to the younger generations.

Sarah Louise Young is one of my all time favorite pornstars and with all the porn movies she made that were adaptions of famous stories like HAMLET, DECAMERON and NIKITA it´s kind of strange that she never did a porn version of Wonder Woman when she looks so much like her.

Sarah Louise Young was born on April 15th 1971 in Sidcup, Kent, England. Her mother was a seamstress and her father a successful structural engineer which may account for Sarah´s very successful structures.

Sarah went to an ordinary school, an A - student with the ambition of becoming a dentist. She was very shy and withdrawn and was scared of cameras that being the main reason why she would never let anyone take pictures of her when she was younger. At the age of 11 she was already mentally way ahead of her classmates and ashamed of her large breasts.

While her friends were interested in pop groups, she was more interested in men and soon she discovered what effect she had on them. At the early age of 13 she had her first sexual experience with a man, and did not find it very exciting. But one year later she had more sex and became to like it ever more. When her breasts became bigger and bigger, she became so ashamed that she wore large sweatshirts to hide them - especially from the male students who tried fondling her incredible breasts during recess.

In January 1986 she met a man at a bus stop who suggested going to a photo studio to take some trial pictures for the famous page 3 of the Sun. She was surprised because she found herself very unattractive. But Sarah thought that although this would never work, as the camera would only enhance her ugliness, it would be the ideal opportunity to overcome her dislike of cameras. After a talk with her mother to obtain her permission, the photo shoot took place in February 1986. The response to these pics was enormous and from there on her work took off and she was invited to join an agency. She admits that she is very shy, but when she's in front of a camera that disappears and she becomes a completely different person.

Reaching the age of 18 Sarah faced the next challenge. A friend phoned her and told her about a photo shoot taking place for PRIVATE magazine in the Costa de Sol. Sarah was in two minds whether to go because on the one hand the reports in England were all very negative about the porn industry, but on the other the friend was one of the best men's magazine models at the time and she could only tell of how well she was treated.

Sarah is very inquisitive by nature and could not resist to go and she soon came to the conclusion that all of the negative reports and comments about porn had no truth in them at all. She decided to pose for more photos with famous photographer Claus Alvin Vogel from Hamburg. Even at this stage, nobody in narrowminded England thought Sarah Louise Young would become the most accepted export in the erotic business.

In March 1989 her agent visited hardcore tycoon Hans Moser alias Sascha Alexander in Hanover at VTO. Hans had been married to Teresa Orlowski since 1982, whom he had made more famously known as ' Foxy Lady '.

Sarah's agent came to Hans Moser to make some bookings for his models. When he showed Hans the pictures of his girls he replied that there was nothing of his interest except this girl he said, " What's her name ? "

" Sarah Louise Young. " Hans took another look at the picture and he booked the girl for the next VTO production. Hans had immediately spotted the possibilities of this girl just as he had done in 1981 when he had plucked the photo's of Teresa Orlowski from another agent. For four years he had been looking for another ' Foxy Lady ', and had seen hundreds of pictures of girls until he discovered Sarah Louise Young.

However a few days later the production assistant Claudia informed Hans Moser that the appointment with Sarah had been cancelled due to illness.

Hans was very disappointed, finally he had discovered the new ' Foxy Lady ' and the appointment was called off. By this time Hans´ relationship with Teresa was going down hill rapidly and at the end of August 1989 Teresa took both his business and money from him. For 3 weeks Hans wanted to destroy everything around him, however luckily his brother Siegfried was there to stop him. But then Hans recalled Sarah and phoned her agent in London telling him that Sarah had to come to Germany so as he could make her into Europe's latest porn star. However Sarah's agent declined, as he wrongly believed that Sarah would not want to leave England.

Hans was devastated. However all was not lost. Two weeks later Sarah's agent called Hans in Hanover and told him that he had met Sarah at a photo shoot, "Imagine, I told Sarah about you and how I refused your offer and do you know what she said?" "Are you crazy, of course I'll go."

At the time Sarah had never even heard of Hans Moser, but Bill was quick to tell her of his reputation and showed her a couple of Hans' magazine's. Sarah was very impressed with the style and quality, but at the time she was becoming very tired of modeling, as she felt she was becoming brain dead for lack of its use and she needed more of a challenge. Her agent was reluctant to let Sarah go because she had just turned 18, meaning there would be a lot of new markets open to her with age restrictions such as America, France and Asia. So Sarah asked that if she took the job would she have the opportunity to work behind the cameras as well and Hans' reply was " Of course I'll expect you to ! " And so in September 1989 Sarah flew to Germany and met Hans Moser, one of the most influential Porn producers in Europe, who at the time was at his lowest ebb going through the most difficult, bitter and trying divorce with Teresa Orlowski.

However Hans was quick to notice that Sarah no longer looked exactly the same as she had lost a lot of weight after her illness, which had resulted in a fair reduction of her breasts. So Sarah was quickly rushed to surgery for a cosmetic correction to enhance her breasts to their natural size and beauty. The result was overwhelming. Her wonderful figure, the magical glow in here eyes and her natural charms were able to melt every man's heart and to burn every fuse just by seeing her. A star was born.

After recognizing Sarah's talents Hans decided once again to make her a star in both the business and in his life and on January the 13th 1991 Las Vegas was once again the venue where Hans Moser celebrated his third marriage. The world of pornographic productions were laying at her feet.

She co - stared with the best known actors of the scene, won many important prizes for her outstanding performances and was highly honored with a cultural prize in Spain, for her last big film ' Hamlet '.

Meanwhile her beauty can be seen on over 150 video covers.

Executive producer, writer, director, yes, Sarah achieved everything in the business, but as time passed by she felt more attached to the comfort of her home and her dreams of a family. She wore comfortable clothes, read many books, many of them cooking books and indulged her guests with her cooking talent. Exactly these qualities allowed Sarah to be so creative and always discover new things. As very creative in graphics, she used her fantasy symbolically and proved to be commercially competent.

But the business was changing. Price wars began to make big budget productions practically impossible and the market became flooded with low budget and private productions. And the opening of the eastern block made the whole situation even worse. Actresses / actors from the east swamped the market for lower fees and the situation became intolerable for Sarah who being far too sensitive for the business could not stand to work with people who hated the work but only done it for the money and who had absolutely no respect or compassion for either themselves, each other or the business. This all lead Sarah to decide it was time to quit performing in front of the camera and so she began working on a new future, without her husband Hans Moser, from who she is now divorced.

Yep, she was a big star over here in Germany when I was old enough to rent porn videos. That shows you what an old geezer ( and old pervert ) I am. Also, she was the first one who made porn videos for a price that horny teenagers like me could afford. I mean, new tapes. Because back in those days you could buy used porn videos at the video store but those were watched hundreds of times and only seconds away from combustion.

Even if Sarah is from England she got the greek look down to pat with the curly hair and even the nose. I know because when I was in middle school there was a greek girl I liked in our class who had a well developed body for her age. And we had a very busty form mistress I had the hots for.

Back to Sarah Louise Young there were rumors she planned on becoming a lawyer but nothing that was confirmed. She made a lot of her movies in Spain because they were so hot she had to shoot them outside of England.

As far as her movies go the list would be too long to include here and you can find it on the internet but THE YOUNG ONE is the best of the best.

And with that we´re going seamlessly into the video section of this post starting with an interview with Sarah Young at Cannes, I think she was there for the HOT D´OR awards show which is the french version of the AVN awards. The best scene is when she is dancing in a disco with a white latex dress shaking everything her Mama gave her ( around 1 : 30 min ).

Latin telenovelas not only have the best titles ( HASTA QUE EL DINERO NOS SEPARE could be translated to " Until money do us part " ) they also have the most buxom wenches like hot Malillany Marin in the clip below.

But not all latin sexbombs star in telenovelas. This tv hot presenter´s show for example was almost cancelled because of her porn outfit.

I was hesitant to post this one but if you can´t post a video about women eating bananas in public in a porn star post when CAN you post it ? The lure with the black hair that is shown in the preview picture has clearly the better technique and I can understand the guy who tries to convince her to let him substitute for the banana. What I want to know is if she had the balls to take on his indecent proposal or if she chickened out.

Since I cast Sarah Louise Young as Wonder Woman I thought the last video should be with Wonder Woman but not from the Lynda Carter tv series.

Don´t get me wrong, the series is fantastic and Lynda Carter´s portrayal of Wonder Woman became so iconic that DC hasn´t managed to follow up on that until the present day. There never was a tv series after that one.

But I have put one cartoon video on every Justice League casting post so far and I want to continue with that as long as I can. There also are no full episodes of the Wonder Woman tv series on YouTube and not that many clips with scenes from the show that are in good quality. I was looking for animated series but most clips were from shows like SUPER FRIENDS or THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD as there seems to have been no solo cartoon about Wonder Woman. I was just about to despair when I found the video below which is from an audio play with illustrations from the comics.

Daredevil hijacks Black and White Saturday

Like always I totally blanked on the fact that Today is the Day of German Unity so all the shops are closed and my plans of buying some ice cream are nixed. Last year I reviewed a german comic in homage to this special holiday but because I have nothing prepared about german comics I won´t be doing that. I still wanted to do something special and since it has been a while since I did a BLACK AND WHITE post here are some special gems.

I have written a lot about Ann Nocenti´s and John Romita Jr´s DAREDEVIL run but the Frank Miller run on the title is still considered by many comic readers, critics and afficionados as the gold standard and if you see the beautiful splash page from DAREDEVIL issue 182 it´s easy to see why.

Only in black and white can you see the brilliant ink work by Klaus Janson, who I don´t like on all books he did but who is pure magic here. He and Frank Miller just clicked and it is in great part thanks to the work of Klaus Janson that the comic was such a success. As somebody who has dabbled in art and inking myself I know that you can learn more from a page of original art than from hours of lecture and even if I don´t have the money to buy expensive originals I try to get as many Marvel ESSENTIALS as I can get. I know it´s not as good as an ARTIST`S EDITION or the recently released ARTIFACT EDITION of Frank Miller´s DAREDEVIL by IDW - while we are on the subject of Daredevil art - but it´s better than nothing.

Recently I ordered a dozen ESSENTIALS from amazon´s " new and used books " section, which in the end was not as big as a bargain as I hoped. Getting a 20 dollar book for 10 bucks plus 3 for shipping and handling is a good deal, especially when you get some for 8 or 5 bucks but if you think ordering a bundle of books from the same dealer will lower the collective price for shipping and handling - well, let me just say that you are sadly mistaken my friend. If you order 6 books from the same dealer that´s still 3 bucks for shipping and handling each which means 18 bucks total. Now knowing the prices of the Deutsche Post you know a package would have to weigh more than 2 kilos to get anywhere near that postage but on the other side it´s probably one of the reasons why they sell 20 buck books for 10 or 9 bucks. But I don´t want to complain, I made a good deal.

And while the ESSENTIAL DAREDEVIL were canceled before reaching Frank Miller there is still some great art in them like this cover by Wally Wood.

DAREDEVIL is a great series to read in the ESSENTIAL format because to be honest not all the comics in the ESSENTIALS are the best of the best.

In my last post about the ESSENTIALS and the DC SHOWCASE PRESENTS I clearly favored the ESSENTIALS but I have to state for the record : yes, there is some great art but for every George Perez, John Buscema - or Gene Colan in the case of Daredevil - you have a Bob Brown, George Tuska or Don Heck. Who in their own right are great comic artists and I have already planned to do a post on one of the unsung heroes of my comic collecting youth : Rich Buckler. But you wouldn´t buy a MARVEL MASTERWORKS because of them. Also those artists sometimes don´t have the greatest stories to illustrate which means that while I want to read those issues and have them in my collection I don´t want to spend much money which makes them perfect for the black and white format.

And since we are on the subject of Daredevil and Gene Colan I wanted to mention that I recently acquired DAREDEVIL 363 because of the artwork.

I may have picked it up at the " comics per kilo " section and it´s an issue I was missing in my comic collection because I stopped with issue 362.

As usual I had perfect timing. By the end of Ann Nocenti and John Romita Jr´s run DAREDEVIL was on my pull list and back then if a new creative team came aboard I waited a few issues until making a judgement. So after a fill - in issue by Mark Bagley Lee Weeks became the new penciler with Ann Nocenti staying on board until issue 291 ( Kieron Dwyer did the art on issues 289 and 290 ) handing the reigns over to D. G. Chichester.

Lee Weeks stayed until DAREDEVIL issue 300 ( Ron Garney did the art on issue 296 ) although he provided covers for the consecutive two issues.

I remember that it was a pretty decent run, especially the LAST RITES finale, and I know that I bought all the issues but I can´t for the life of me remember whatever happened to them. Maybe I sold them, maybe they are in some dark corner and only surface when I have gone and bought all those issues again - who knows ? I know where all the following issues are. Which of course are the ugly ones. Because from here on it´s a bumpy road following DAREDEVIL. D. G. Chichester stays as writer and we have two issues by W. C. Wyman ( man, there were a lot of initials in comics in the 90s ), one issue by Ron Garney until Scott McDaniel - under the name Scott Alan McDaniel - takes over as regular artist starting with DAREDEVIL issue 305 ( again, guest art by Kevin Kobasic on issue 316 ). 

And this is where it really get ugly. The two part story in issues 305 and 306 with the brilliant villainess - wait for it - the Surgeon General ( oh, the humanity ! ) may be one of THE worst Daredevil stories ever and after the less than stellar DEATH MAN`S HAND crossover with PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL and NOMAD in issues 307 to 309 I was out for good.

So I can´t say much about what happened between issues 310 and 318 but judging from the cluster - f - word that was FALL FROM GRACE ( issues 319 to 326 ) I would say that missing those issues is one of the reasons why I managed to maintain my sanity. I remember there was a lot of hype about the story at that time and that it was pimped by all kinds of people not the least my comic dealer at that time but I didn´t let them pull the wool over my eyes on that one. Years later I got the german trade of FALL FROM GRACE out of sheer curiosity how bad of a train wreck it really is and let me tell you it is incredible. And for anybody who doesn´t believe me I´m offering the trade as a no prize. I certainly don´t need it here.

Anyway, out of FALL FROM GRACE - where Scott McDaniel did his best Frank Miller SIN CITY impression - came one of the ugliest Daredevil costumes ever which Matt Murdock would wear beyond D. G. Chichester´s and Scott McDaniel´s exit in Daredevil 332 ( Sergio Cariello does the art on issue 328 ). Or so it seems. Gregory Wright takes over as writer for the FATHOMS OF HUMANITY five parter with Tom Grindberg on the art before D. G. Chichester returns with issue 338 credited as Alan Smithee.

Now if you have a bit of movie knowledge - and let´s face it : in Today´s day and age it´s more probable than any comic book knowledge - you may know that Alan Smithee was a secret pseudonym film directors used when they wanted to disown a movie. It´s pretty much common knowledge.

Anyway, if a writer is credited as Alan Smithee you know that there was some kind of trouble and in the case of D. G. Chichester he insisted that he would be credited as such on the last five issues he was contractually obligated to write after he had learned that he was going to be replaced as writer on DAREDEVIL by group editor Bobbie Chase. Yup, even without help from Disney the guys at Marvel knew how to screw with each other.

You learn something new every day and I´m just grateful that Alan Moore doesn´t know about this whole Alan Smithee thing or he would probably demand that DC changes all his credits on new editions of WATCHMEN to Alan Smithee. I mean he is already credited as " The original writer " in all the MIRACLEMAN reprints by Disney. I just wonder how long it will take until he is credited as " The writer formerly known as Alan Moore " ?

But coming back from one of the best limited series in comics ever ( I´m explicitly not calling it a graphic novel because it is not a graphic novel despite how many people call it the greatest graphic novel ever ) like WATCHMEN to the crap fest that was DAREDEVIL from issues 343 on.

Which may be total speculation on my part since I haven´t read those issues. Maybe DAREDEVIL 343 by Warren Ellis and Keith Pollard is a really intricate examination of the human condition. Maybe issue 344 by the new creative team of Bwa - ha - ha Justice League writer J. M. DeMatteis ( more credit initials from the 90s ) and artist Ron Wagner was so totally Airwolf they just had to make DAREDEVIL part of the MARVEL EDGE line.

Remember those ? When Marvel had the brilliant marketing idea to publish all of their " edgy " books under the MARVEL EDGE banner ?

At the least it was one surefire way to avoid all these books. Not that it managed to keep me away from the book longer than issue 346. Which was not good. Like I said maybe the issues before this were better than fried bananas covered in chocolate on a stick. Issue 346 was something else. It was also poked through with a stick but the brown substance covering it all was surely no chocolate. I don´t remember much about the story - it is too painful - but it was a crossdressing, genderbending, amnesiac doubleganger, multiple Daredevil costumes at once stolen identity crisis kind of thing. And not in a good Grant Morrison way.

I mean, I tried to stay with the title because of the artists they brought in like Gary Nord, Shawn McManus or Cully Hammner at the very end of this volume ( of course I got those - grrrrr ) but something was just missing.

They brought back Daredevil´s red costume, they brought back Foggy Nelson, they even brought back Karen Page but even the best efforts of writer Karl Kesel seemed unable to bring the much needed critical and financial success back to DAREDEVIL needed to save it from the chopping block. So DAREDEVIL issue 362 by Karl Kesel and Gary Nord was my last.

Enter Gene Colan.

Yup, sometimes my timing sucks. And when I say " sometimes " I mean almost all the time. So the DAREDEVIL book was closing up shop and for whatever reasons Marvel decided to go out with a big bang and managed recruiting the artists who had made the book into one of their " must read " books decades before Frank Miller put pencil to paper : THE Gene Colan.

Gene Colan does six issues towards the end, issues 363, the Minus 1 issue Marvel did with most books in the summer of 1997, issues 366 to 368 and issue 370. Apart from issue 363 I don´t think I have seen any of the other issues during one of my many visits to the comic shop but on the other side I haven´t really looked for them. And if you really need to check them out they are all part of the new Daredevil Epic Collection WIDOW`S KISS. Here comes my usual complaint about the gutter loss which according to the reviews at amazon a lot of people have problems with as well as with the low quality of the material in this collection.

Remember this is towards the not so great end of the title and besides die hard Daredevil fans most people won´t be fooled by the Gene Colan namedrop. Man, this post got totally sideways from where it started.

Since this already morphed from a " Best of black and white art " into a Daredevil post I wanted to add that while David Mazuchelli´s collaboration with Frank Miller on BORN AGAIN is also part of the Daredevil Olympus nobody ever talks much about all his other issues he did on DAREDEVIL.

Besides issues 227 to 233 he provided art for issues 206, 208 to 217, 220 to 223, 225 and 226. I´m curious if there were any memorable stories.

Even though this was more of an impromptu post there are always some Daredevil links I haven´t posted yet. First is MICHEL FIFFE with a post about his love for the Ann Nocenti / John Romita Jr Daredevil run and RIP JAGGER`S DOJO has many posts on Gene Colan which I probably haven´t posted yet : Gene Colan RIP , Marvel´s Space - Born Artist ! , Out of the Holocaust ..... A Hue ! , The Mask Of Strange ! and Strange Looks ! .

BIG GLEE has a view pieces of original Gene Colan art, BLAH BLAH BLAH has a three part Batman story : Jungle Jeopardy by Doug Moench and Don Newton from BATMAN 365, Laugh Killer Laugh by Doug Moench and Gene Colan from DETECTIVE COMICS 532 and The Joker is Wild by Doug Moench and Don Newton from BATMAN 366, you can find the Gene Colan interview Roy Thomas did for ALTER EGO issue 6 on TWOMORROWS PUBLISHING and there is always THE INVINCIBLE GENE COLAN BLOG if you want more.

And since this post started out as a " Best of black and white art " post in honor of Today´s holiday Day of The German Union or Unification - I´m not quite sure - here´s a gorgeous black and white piece by Toni Greis. 

Because of the holiday I chose to post videos about Germany and what better way than to start with another episode of LIFE IN GERMANY that is all about what germans like to do during the Tag der Deutschen Einheit.

The next video from GERMANY VS USA is about awesome german products you might want to purchase before your return home.

Another typical german thing is - you might not believe this - comedy or like german stand up comedy was called back when I was young : kabarett or nonsens. Famous group Insterburg & Company is one of the bedrocks of german kabarett and I think I already posted another video with them.

Now I thought about what else is typical german and what could be more typical than Germany´s most famous MILF ? Don´t forget the german Fräulein ! Sonya Kraus is on german tv every time, all the time and if it´s not as host of her various tv shows which are constantly on reruns or as a guest on another show she´s on a special. You can bet your bottom dollar that if there is a special about the Day of German Unity she will be in it.

Sonya Kraus became famous for her skimpy outfits and her stunning body which she is not afraid to use to her advantage. Her most famous quote is :  " Your breasts can open doors for you. " . And other things too ....

As a former model Sonya did many shootings but while she confessed to read the PLAYBOY and look at other naked women in the pictures she has only done shootings for MAXIM and FHM. I think she did a nude shooting for a calendar or charity but so far she hasn´t done PLAYBOY pictures.

The clip I have chosen is from Sonya´s appearance on the game show DIE PERFEKTE MINUTE ( The perfect Minute ) and at that time there was a big brouhaha because she had very big breasts after being pregnant and the press was having a field day because the show was advertised as being " family friendly ". Now I don´t know what could be more family friendly that a pair of big breasts but then I also had not ignored all the promos where you could see Sonya´s new " porn boobs " as the press called them.

What do you know, it really IS like staring directly into the sun.

Anyway, Sonya appeared on the show wearing just jeans and a tight t - shirt and an ample cleavage and when she was handling these balls with great care - no pun intended - ( I never quite got what she was supposed to do but I didn´t care either ) and leaned forward for once in the history of german television the camera guy did what he was supposed to do and filmed it. At least SOMEBODY at Sat1 knew why people buy a High Def tv.

Despite all the hype - or maybe because of it - the show got the highest viewer rating that day and even doubled it in subsequent reruns.

Usually I include a cartoon video but since most of the ones I watched as a kid are made in Japan I picked MÄNNER OHNE NERVEN ( men without nerves ) a show that presented classic slapstick comedians like Laurel Hardy when he was still a solo act, Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd and so on. The show was narrated by the late great Hans Dieter Hüsch who also made all the sound effects and spoke all the actors - even the women.

Jasmine, Yaya and Akira - not the manga

It´s time to put the kids to sleep and make sure the girlfriend or wife is busy watching some estrogen heavy sitcom because here´s another part of my SUBZERO edition of casting the Justice League of America movie.

Today´s first candidate is for the Black Canary but since I have already covered her secret origin at length in this post her part is rather short.

Which is a blessing because the part with Akira Lane ( and the video section ) which was originally part of an all asian post is rather long. But I think my decision to put women with different looks in the posts was the right one so let´s get right on without the usual comic related intro :

Krista Santoro as Black Canary ( Dinah Lance )

Krista Santoro a.k.a. Carmen Rossi is a canadian fitness / adult model ( our second canadian is Jenny Poussin ) and she was born on November the 29th in 1985. Her measurements are 36DD ( 34E cupsize ) - 24 - 36.

This is a no - brainer. Krista is hot, she´s blonde and the first thing I thought when I saw the pictures of her in fishnets was : Black Canary.

No, really. She looks perfect for the role of kick - ass martial arts specialist Dinah Lance who even became the JLA chairwoman for a time.

What a great ass in the shot and it even looks like she´s screaming.

And you know that Black Canary is a screamer and not a moaner. I guess that´s what Ollie really means when talking about her " canary cry ".

Black Canary has always been the designated " whack - off material " for the male readers, why else have her dress look like a hooker outfit ?

I mean the new costume doesn´t have the complete prostitute look that her Silver Age dress had but they kept the leather jacket and fishnets.

In Germany she was even translated as BLITZSCHWALBE which sounds almost like BORDSTEINSCHWALBE which is german slang for a hooker.  

I looked for more info about her but there´s not much on the internet and most websites are repeating the same stuff or not safe to post. The only one I can link is the CARMEN ROSSI WIKI which has some useful data.

Kari Wuhrer as Gypsy ( Cynthia Reynolds )  

I wanted to include another of my favorite sci fi sexbombs in the Justice League cast after Jeri Ryan and Jolene Blalock in the Hollywood edition.

Kari was put on the cast of SLIDERS as the boner guarantee for the male audience and they got more than their money´s worth in the Wild West episode where she´s almost spilling out of her snug saloon girl corsage.

Kari could also use her musical talent in the role - Kari had started singing in nightclubs as a teenager and signed a record deal with Rick Rubin who released her debut album Shiny in 1999. Kari wrote most of the songs on the album herself and played the guitar and the flute on several tracks.

As for her sexy stripper moves I´m not sure if she had any formal dance training. Maybe she´s just a natural. Anyway, Kari got some mad skills.

She also was in HOT BLOODED, a really bad movie that doesn`t even have full frontal nudity. Nevertheless it´s one of my favorite movies with Kari because she looks really hot in this one. You get to see a lot of cleavage and boobs and in the first sex scene on the bed you can see her sexy ass.

And because one scene where she´s at a gas station and pulls down her leather top to make the desk clerck horny. She´s really pulling it in all directions so you get to see her full boobs. I have no evidence but I swear I can see some nipple. I bet Kari had to do this scene a hundred times as the crew was sabotaging all takes just to see her boobs again and again.

" Sorry, Kari. The sound was off. And could you push your boobs together a bit more when you pull down your top ? No, you almost don´t see it. "

In any case, I had this scene on a video tape on a loop and I must have heard the words " This material just doesn´t breathe ! " a hundred times.

Like I said there is no full frontal nudity in this cineastic masterpiece but you get a bit of sideboob in a scene that was heavily cut on german tv.

They cut parts from when she´s using a whip to get into the mood and pours hot wax on his body. They also cut some parts from where she´s on top of him which I didn´t know until I found the movie on the internet.

Damn you, german tv for keeping Kari Wuhrer´s sideboob away from me !

Coming back to the Justice League movie casting she already played a sexy gypsy in the Stephen King movie THINNER so who am I to argue ?

Another bonus is that Kari has already gone full frontal in previous movies so nude scenes or scenes where she wears a bikini should be no problem.

So far I haven´t done a solo post on Kari Wuhrer - although I mentioned the Wild West episode of SLIDERS before - and as far as Gypsy goes you can look for previous posts of the Justice League casting for my thoughts on her. She will be mentioned in the upcoming DEATH IN COMICS - THE DEATH OF MISTER MIRACLE post and in any posts about the Detroit League. IF I ever manage to get my hands on some of those issues.

Akira Lane as Dr. Light ( Kimiyo Hoshi )

The female version of Doctor Light was introduced in the classic CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS and she never got much screen time in the JLA.

There´s also not much to add about this character since the Hollywood edition, she was included so I could cast ultrahot asians like Akira Lane.

With so many asian sexbombs to choose from I went with flexible Akira Lane because she got an ass that won´t quit. This girl is better than viagra and if it´s not over after five hours please consult your Doctor !

Akira Lane is an extraordinarily beautiful young lady born to a Hawaiian father and Japanese mother who  grew up in Japan, attending American schools on the islands of Okinawa, before moving to the United States at the age of eighteen where she became the lead cheerleader at her school.

First settling in Norfolk, Virginia, where she attended Old Dominion University, Miss Lane ( a stage name she adopted in 2002 ) moved west to San Diego after spending spring break there and falling in love with the West Coast climate. She attended San Diego State University for two years, earning a B.A. in International Business, and went to work " selling financial plans to cheesy automobile dealerships and repossessing cars ".

Tiring of this line of work, she moved again, this time to Orange County, where she went to work in the hi - tech computer industry. Interestingly enough, her career began later in 2000 when - on a dare and slightly intoxicated by Tequila - she posed for a male friend who posted the pics to an online forum. Thank you mysterious guy we all are indebted to you..

Since then, she began modeling, eventually springing into the spotlight with the 2002 issues of the adult magazines Playboy ( June ) and Sexual Prime ( December ). Things snowballed from there, and today she not only has her own website, she also has appeared in numerous magazines, several films, and makes appearances all over the country to meet her growing legion of devoted fans. She even does personalized photo shoots.

Miss Lane would like to one day settle down, marry and have a family, though her career has priority until that happens. Despite her growing fame and popularity, she remains one of the sweetest and most accessible models in the industry today, and always takes time to personally answer her fan mail. Her passions in life are " music, love and, of course, MEN ! "

Trivia : Television work includes roles in such Playboy shows as Hip Hop Honeys, Naughty Amateur, 7 Lives Xposed, Weekend Flash, Sexy Urban Legend and Coed Carwash as well as appearances on 5th Wheel and the Canadian show Ed the Sock Show. Miss Lane has been featured in the 2003 Women of the East calendar for the month of March, the 2003 Erebuni calendar, and the July 2002 edition of Playboy magazine. Was named Miss Web Model for 2001, and won the Glamour Elite Site Award for 2001 and was the second runner - up as Model of the Year for 2002.

Hobbies include photography, gourmet cooking, rollerblading, kickboxing, karakoke, body surfing and aerobics. She also enjoys dancing ( Hip Hop, Salsa, Japanese Folklore and Hula ), sports ( especially golf ) and playing music ( piano & flute ). Okay, to get this straight : she´s a megahot asian model with a body that makes pornstars envious who cooks, does Hula Dance AND she´s an expert at blowing the flute ? This girl is too much.

So there are a lot of good reasons why Akira Lane gets the role of Dr. Light in this edition but I guess Today I´d probably just cast Yaya  Han.

Man, there´s just gotta be a way how I can have them both in the cast. I´d even bend the rules a bit and have Yaya as the Outsiders´ Katana.

We begin Today´s video section with another hot asian sexbomb I would have liked to include in my Justice League movie casting : Jasmine Mai. You may remember that the picture below was part of the NOT MY BIG YAYA HAN SPOTLIGHT POST - YET post which intrigued a few readers.

I always try to post something that ties in to the topic but I couldn´t find any of Today´s candidates Krista Santoro, Kari Wuhrer or Akira Lane - at least not any in good quality. As I said, the part with Akira Lane was part of an all asian post which I scrapped because after making various theme oriented posts I would have ended up with at least two all blondes posts.

So I put my asian Justice Leaguers into different posts to keep things a bit more balanced and not so boring. Also with my fixation on talented oral orientals I have to be careful these posts turn into porn - which is one of the reasons I still have not been able to finish The Big Yaya Han Post.

Okay, enough exposition, all efforts to find any good videos of the other candidates failed so I put the videos from that original post here since I already had more than enough videos on the other posts where I put the asian babes. The video section may be a bit hasian heavy but it can´t be helped. And I´m not complaining - I get to put these videos in a post. 

Our first videos are from import model Jasmine Mai at the EXXXOTICA NEW YORK in 2008. I wished it was in one part ( I´m counting this as one video ) but I´m just glad there is anything good with her on YouTube.

Our next video does at least take place somewhere comic related so maybe you have met Jasmine Mai at the 2009 NEW YORK COMIC CON.

I also wanted to include some videos of Jasmine Mai in action ( get your mind out of the gutter ) so here is one from a photoshoot in a blue bikini.

And finally, the piece de resistance, Jasmine in her white cowgirl outfit. It may be just my fetish for almond eyes speaking but she freaking hot.

I put a lot of Yaya Han on the post so I feel obligated to include some vids with her especially since I have no idea when her solo post will go up.

These are videos I may have posted before but they are my two favorite videos with Yaya Han in her Chun Li costume. They are both high quality so you can watch them in full screen mode which I recommend since you may risk missing the best parts - Yaya Han´s " twitching " - otherwise.
