Rachel Weisz was cast in the role of Evie Carnahan in Stephen Sommers 1999 film version of The Mummy, adding an understated sexuality to her role as basically a female nerd who inadvertently unleashed the immortal Imhotep. Weisz reprised the role in 2001's The Mummy Returns and added another layer of "hotness" by showing a little skin and tackling some even more demanding physical stunts.
Sadly the next sequel, The Scorpion King, focused on altogether different characters and a wholly different setting.
Now a new Mummy film is underway, with Jet Li as an Asian mummy, but the lovely Rachel - now an Academy Award winner - isn't part of the picture, although film hero Brendan Frasier does return as her characters husband. Evie Carnahan will be wearing a new face as the part has been recast with a different actress.
So, like I said fellas, envy the snake. I sure would like to crawl all over the fetching Brit.
