Carla Gugino was having a good year in terms of television projects prior to the recent news announcement that she will be joining the new HBO dark comedy "The Brink" as the leading lady. She has already filmed the movie "San Andreas" in which she plays a feature role opposite none other than one of the most popular action-adventure actors in Hollywood, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. In addition to that movie she has filmed the first season of the much talked about Fox show "Wayward Pines" and is providing the voice of Katherine in the animated cartoon "Almost Heroes 3D".
The year 2014 was providing no complaints for the actress who is considered by many fans to be one of the most attractive women in Hollywood and someone who many of her male and female fans still do not believe is over the age of 40 years old.
However, her very good year has arguably turned into an exceptional year with the news that she has been chosen to star as Joanne Larson, a Washington lawyer in the prime of her career who proves that she is more than capable of matching wits with her Secretary of State husband played by Tim Robbins. The show "The Brink" revolves around a geopolitical crisis and its effect on three disparate and desperate men.
Entertainment observers are thinking that the show is similar to the cherry on top of the ice cream from Carla Gugino as it will allow her to showcase her comedic timing and acting range as a leading lady on the small screen.
Carla Gugino is moving from supporting roles to leading lady roles on both television and in movies in 2014 and in the process is showing that her beautiful looks only 'complement' her outstanding acting ability and are not the reason for her success.
