Morena Baccarin is in the Running for “The Avengers”

The star of ABC’s V, Morena Baccarin, is in the running to play the role of Nick Fury’s (Samuel Jackson) sidekick in The Avengers. Others being considered for the female role are Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother), Jessica Lucas (Melrose Place) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World).

Considering there are no Latinos in this film, we’re rooting for the the Brazilian actress; not only is she gorgeous, but we can already see her kicking butt in fighting scenes. The Avengers is likely to have some sequels attached to it so this would be a big movie deal for Baccarin.
