Olivia Wilde

In addition to staying sexy, the lovely Olivia Wilde is continuing to expand her growing film resume. She just starred in Disney's Tron Legacy, and even if the reviews on the film are mixed, Wilde doesn't seem to be the source of much criticism. Therefore I'm pleased with Risky Biz's report that Wilde has landed a pivotal role in Alex Kurtzman's family drama Welcome to People, which will be the Star Trek writer's directorial debut. The story follows a businessman (Chris Pine) who returns home after his estranged father’s death and discovers that he has an alcoholic sister (Elzabeth Banks) with a 12-year-old son. Wilde will play Pine's girlfriend in the film.

This is just one of many recent project Wilde has taken on. In addition to having a big supporting role in this summer's Cowboys & Aliens, she's also landed roles in Now, the sci-fi flick formerly known as I'm.mortal, and the comedy Change-Up with Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman. This probably isn't good news for fans of Wilde's work on Fox's hit medical drama "House M.D.," but it's definitely good news for anyone who likes seeing the beautiful actress on the big screen. Wilde has yet to show a spectacular amount of range on film, but this surge of upcoming work should allow her to shine. What do you think?

Bring it. She was the only thing in Tron that I enjoyed. 'Looking forward to seeing her evolve as an actress.

I remember the night when we took that picture!!! However, it appears that they photoshopped clothes onto her body and digitally removed me from between her thighs... bastards.

She's getting cast in a lot of movies lately. I fear this may mean she may not have time, or the desire, to return to House.
