If you haven’t seen The American, I highly recommend that you do so. The film is an excellent thriller about a gunsmith (Clooney) who becomes involved with a prostitute while he’s building a custom-designed sniper rifle for an assassination, and being stalked by unknown assassins. Placido generously shows lots of nudity in the movie, and to describe her as merely “beautiful” would be a serious understatement. I was unaware of her before viewing this flick, but I’m gonna keep my eyes peeled for her henceforth. Pun intended! For now, I’m adding her to the Catacombs as this weeks official “gal” Friday selection.
