Some women can be real witches. They not only have that “sly, come hither stare,” but they can work an actual magic spell. In honor of Halloween, we’re counting down our 20 favorite sorceresses, witches, casters and enchantresses from film and television.
Hey, do you think there are any actresses who’d like to be in the sequel to the biggest non-James Cameron movie ever? Casting for The Dark Knight Rises is well underway, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing a shortlist of the ladies auditioning for roles in the film. While no one’s saying if previously featured parts like Catwoman, Poison Ivy or Vicki Vale are making a return to the franchise, word is Talia, daughter of Batman Begins baddie Ra’s Al Ghul and enthusiast for skin-tight body suits, is going to play a part in Rises. If there’s another part available, we’re guessing its Sexy Villainess In Tight Clothing or Sexy Gainfully Employed Woman In A Frustrating Relationship With Bruce Wayne.
Check out the gallery below to see all the women who could potentially be joining Christian Bale, Michael Caine and Inception’s Tom Hardy (one of our Biggest Bad-Asses Of 2010) in the guaranteed Bat-smash.

Two new Bond girls are set to steam up theaters with today’s opening of Quantum of Solace: Ukranian-born Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Craig‘s stunning sidekick; and Gemma Arterton, a British operative. You can bet that Bond will need to add notches to his bedpost for both Olga and Gemma — just like he did for Halle Berry, Eva Green, Denise Richards and countless others.
Browse photos of Bond girls below and then let us know how his new babes stack up against his exes.
Olga Kurylenko, 28, and Gemma Arterton, 22, aren’t household names yet, but you’ll be seeing a lot more of them when the new James Bond flick Quantum of Solace hits theaters Nov. 14. A sequel to the excellent Casino Royale, the movie had its premiere opening last week in London – and both girls apparently looked so come-hither that Princes William and Harry couldn’t help but use their Royal Charm to chat them up.
In Quantum, Olga plays Daniel Craig‘s seductive sidekick Camille, who is — surprise! — ravaged by him in a graphic sex scene (warning: clip NSFW). According to early reviews, the Ukranian-born model-turned-actress is one of the highlights of the movie. Gemma, an English actress who will star opposite Jake Gyllenhaal in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, plays a British operative named Miss Fields. We’re guessing she also jumps into the sack with 007. Don’t they all?

French actress Eva Green, who starred as Vesper Lynd in the last Bond film Casino Royale, has got sultry looks and a rocking model figure. And doesn’t she know it. Speaking to You magazine about how she copes with her boyfriend, New Zealand Marton Csokas doing sex scenes, she explained why it’s not a problem – even when he’s getting hot with Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux.
“He did [a love scene] himself with Charlize Theron but it didn’t worry me because I’m better looking than she is.”
O-kay. Well, that’s one way of dealing with jealousy. But is she really fitter than Charlize? In Monster, no problem. Elsewhere…well, we’ll leave it up to you to make that choice.
