GOTW – Rosario Dawson

21 Nov

Rosario Dawson

Age: 31
Hometown: New York, NY
Notable Roles: Ruby in Kids
Gail in Sin City
Becky in Clerks 2
Roxana in Alexander

  Rosario is every geeks favorite Puerto Rican Afro-Cuban actress. She has proved that no matter what role she is playing, whether it be the leader of rouge prostitutes in Sin City or the manager at a burger joint in Clerks 2, she can look good and fascinate us with how much she looks like one of our girl friends that you’ll only ever be friends with and there’s nothing you can do about that (except fantasize).   
    In addition to acting Rosario is also a singer. Only seen her movies and didn’t know that? well she was in the movie adaptation of Rent. She also was featured on a track on one of Outkast’s albums. Oh and in 1999 she teamed up with Prince to remix and rereleased his hit 1999, as in Prince aka the artist formerly known as Prince aka that funny symbol for a name guy aka Prince, as in one of the top artists of all time. Yeah that guy. So she managed to do pretty well despite many not knowing she is multi-talented.
    Her geek cred  really comes mostly from movies, starring in indie and blockbuster hits. Men in Black II, Clerks 2, Grindhouse, Sin City, Eagle Eye just to name a few. Oh and there was her full nude scene in Alexander which failed in the US market.

(kinda wish you had went to see it now huh?)

  I  also hear she is an absolute pleasure to work with on set. Which makes her even more worthy, the fact that a pretty girl can be so nice and be a geek. It’s almost unreal.
The occult crimes taskforcenumber one thing Rosario does that makes her an over-the-top extreme geek is the fact that she put out her own comic book. How many girls you know can say they did that? The story is about a group of NY police officers that patrol a part of the city inhabited by practitioners of magic and deal with crimes of occult origin. Occult Crimes Taskforce was a miniseries published by Image comics, you can still find back issues at some shops and online.

Not only did she create the story but she also managed to include a character that looks very familiar.

imnotobsessedcom(hmm can’t quite figure it out)

  Rosario has not only become an accomplished actress and singer she also manages to designate a lot of her time to volunteer in support groups and charities and tons of other organizations. She done pretty well for a girl whose family was homeless when she was young and lived in an abandon building. Kind of makes your accomplishment of cracking the key for the new Adobe suite less triumphant.

    I’ll leave you with more proof that geek girls exist and yes they can be hott…
