Kim Kardashian Could Be the New Lara Croft

By - Source: Tom's Guide US | B 94 comments

Is Kim getting fitted for hot pants and a holster?

There's been tons of Lara Crofts over the years, the most famous probably being Angelina Jolie. Sure there's still a barrage of Lara's patrolling every video game trade show known to man but who's going to fill Jolie's hot pants and take on the role of Lara on the big screen?

Word on the street is Kim Kardashian is in discussions to replace Jolie as Lara Croft in the Tomb Raider movie franchise. According to Showbizspy Kardashian is in discussions to become the new Lara and the reality TV star, who's already appeared in CSI: NY, is said to be taking acting lessons.

Showbizspy cites Hollywood sources that say Kim gets a lot of scripts but doesn't want to be seen as making the same mistake as a lot of other 'famous people' who can't act but appear in movies anyway.

"She gets scripts sent to her all the time, but unlike so many other famous people she doesn’t just want to make a film without first learning the craft."

Who do you think would make the best Lara Croft? Let us know in the comments below!

    That would be the first XXX rated Tomb Raider production.

    Who is Kim Kardashian? I keep hearing the name but I still have no idea who she is. Same with Justin Bieber. Why do I know these names? I know, I know...I will go Google them...still if I know these names, as I hear them everyday on radio, T.V. and net, shouldn't I have some idea as to who the Hell they are?

    If they are planning on making a Silent Film style Tomb Raider, it might work, but if she has to speak......no.

    Hey, at least you have to respect her for taking acting lessons...

    Still, I think this is an awful idea.

    I find it hard to believe they wouldn't choose Alison Carroll.

    Jessica Biel or Scarlett Johannsen I think would be much better. They both have the more appropriate athletic builds, though Scarlett would prob keep the movie truer to form as she can "fill out" the Lara profile better =P

    So you take a few "acting classes" and you are fit for a mega production. Yeah right. Her credentials are: daughter of an OJ attorney, making cheap ass sex tapes and being a reality TV star.

    Make your own judgment...

    Megan Fox, if your going for looks with minimal talent she at least has acting experience. Kardashian is only known for having a big butt and being in a leaked sex tape.

    Uh no. I don't think so. They're not going to jeopardize their already shaky franchise for a talentless whore who doesn't fit the body type, doesn't have a British accent, and can't act.

    "Kardashian...is said to be taking acting lessons." That sentence cracks me up.
