Zoe Saldana is either one of the biggest closeted nerds working in Hollywood today or she has really been doing her homework on how to appeal to that community. Let us explain. You see, near the end of a film's press cycle -- like we now are with Saldana's 'Colombiana'; when that film has been discussed ad nauseam by the star -- somewhat offbeat topics can be latched onto as a way for the star to discuss anything different than what she has been asked hundreds of times over. This happened when we spoke to Saldana just this afternoon. The topics: Thundercats, Jem and the Holograms, Transformers and G.I. Joe.
Oh, yes, we also discussed 'Colombiana.' As well as 'Star Trek' and 'Avatar.' In 'Colombiana,' Saldana plays Cataleya, a woman born into the drug trade who becomes an assassin to avenge the brutal murder of her parents. Moviefone spoke to Saldana just today about her new film, whether 'Trek' or 'Avatar' changed her life more, and co-starring opposite Britney Spears in 'Crossroads' (bet you forgot about that one). But, it was obvious that Saldana felt most at ease when discussing her childhood Thundercat love.
