Unable to come to terms with Jessica Biel over how much it's really worth to get Jessica Biel in a movie, Fox has quickly moved on to finding someone cheaper to look good in The Wolverine.
Their choice? Svetlana Khodchenkova, a Russian actress who most will likely only remember from Tomas Alfredson's tight spy thriller, Tinker Tailor Gary Oldman. According to Twitch, she's moving quickly toward a deal to play Viper, the same character Biel was to play--a villain with a complex, at-times romantic relationship with Wolverine, who she once blackmailed into marriage. In other words: this could finally be the Wolverine movie where Hugh Jackman comically gulps at the camera.
