When word hit that The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo's Noomi Rapace was looking to break into Hollywood, our Christopher Campbell mused about the many foreign actresses who try to hit it big stateside and come up short of their initial fame. It could, perhaps, happen to Rapace, but following in the footsteps of the character who made her famous -- Lisbeth Salander -- Ms. Rapace is making her own rules.

It turns out that the Swedish actress is eligible for an Oscar, so she's not only a hot commodity as she tours Hollywood studios and potential stateside work, but she's now a premiere name in the Oscar race.
