Persian Actresses: All Purpose Dark Hotties
The Forward interviews Persian Jewish actress Bahar Soomekh who'll be sharing the screen with Tom "cray-cray" Cruise this summer in Mission Impossible III. A perusal of her credits on imdb.com also reveals that she had a bit part in last year's "24" which also starred another fantastic Persian actress (though not Jewish, I think) Shoreh Aghdashloo who blew me away with her portrayal of a Persian mother in House of Sand and Fog (though apparently the academy felt that Rene Zellweger's anorexic pouting deserved the award more that year!). Anyhoo...this concludes our game Six Degrees of Persian Actresses.
