Friday LinkFrogging – 3/12/10

Welcome to Friday kids.  Given the week it was, today just couldn’t come fast enough.

Hold on tight Corey.  Hold on tight.

Before we hit the links, let’s meet this week’s cheesecake.  Say hello to Elizabeth Banks.   You make recognize her from such varied roles as Laura Bush in Oliver Stone’s W and Beth, the bathtub girl, in The 40 Year Old Virgin.  Come to think of it, maybe her roles aren’t so varied.

What you may not know is that Ms. Banks is one of the highest grossing actresses of all time.

“What?” you may ask.

It’s true.  According to The Movie Times at Ugo, Ms. Banks is the 5th highest grossing actress in history.  When I first stumbled onto their chart, she was 4th.  Since then, Cate Blanchett has eeked ahead of her.  How did Elizabeth Banks turn into the female Samuel L. Jackson?  I’m guessing her role as Betty Brant in the 3 Spider-Man movies had something to do with it.  She is currently over $600 billion ahead of last week’s cheesecake and Oscar winner, Sandra Bullock.

Keep ’em…it…up Elizabeth.
