    it sounds like her role in the movie is important enough to keep in the final film, but who knows.

    IMO, Sasha has one advantage over Tara -- since Tara got hyped as "the youngest ever" (Nat, World and Oly champ), it is harder for people to think of her as an adult than is the case for Sasha. If Tara can recognize this fact, and move beyond it to be friends with Sasha --- Kudos to her

    Do you really think these two American figure skating ladies (Cohen and Lipinsky) will get to the same level of acting as Streep, Close, Foster, Spacek? or even Roberts? The ladies I just mentioned studied acting at universities and take renowned Acting classes like Actor's Studio to keep up their skills.

    I think it's kind of cute that I see these skaters in a movie theatre or on TV but I do not have any high hopes for them eeking out a career in films.

    There have been athletes that made a smooth transition to acting careers. Chuck Connors (baseball player), for one.

    The thing with Streep, Close, Foster et al is that they had tremendous acting talent right from the getgo and HONED their craft in acting classes, and Streep and Close did years of stage work long before they got into the movies, and that is what helped them to become the great stars they are.

    Tara wanted to go straight from the skating rink to movie stardom, and she is having a hard time. She's been trying to find acting talent in herself by taking acting classes, and the plain fact is you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. If you don't have acting talent, it isn't going to magically appear just from taking a few acting classes. She could have built a decent resume the hard way, by going for bit parts in off-Broadway or touring company shows and gradually learning what it means to be an actor. Looking at her actual resume is painful, because there is so little substance in it.

    Tara's been pursuing an acting career since 1999, even while performing in SOI. In the beginning, she got TV roles based on her fame as a figure skater, but those opportunities dried up when her OGM got farther and farther in the past. She doesn't seem to be making any headway at all right now, except for a few more TV appearances in reality shows. Tara is lucky that she has all the money from her pro career and endorsements to sustain her while she makes the rounds. Most young struggling actors have to work as waitresses, clerks or whatever jobs they can get just to keep a roof over their heads and feed themselves. And many of those who struggle have real acting talent!

    Also pro athelete Chuck Norris made a smooth transition from mashall arts champion to "Walker Texas Ranger" and various other movies.

    Chuck Norris was one of the best Martial Arts fighters around in his time. I actually saw him fight at several tournaments. However he is the worst actor - I have no idea how Walker has survived on TV - the man just has no acting ability - but did get a name doing the martial arts thing in movies when those movies were "in" but acting - I don't think so.

    I believe Chuck started in a Bruce Lee film after wining some title. Unfortunately the transition for Sasha would not be as readily available for FS roles. I hope she get to be a better actor.

    If it's of any interest, there is a site on the web that lists the names of famous people. Tara is in there, and Sasha isn't. Click HERE

    But Sasha was in the 100 most beautiful people issue of People. Althought she was just listed in an age group, she was in there. Not only that, but you can't trust everything on the web.

    About athletes that became actors, what about Arnold Swartzenager (bodybulding)?

    Also Johnny Weismuller and Buster Crabb (Olympic swimmers who went on to play Tarzan in the movies).

    Ronald Reagan was a college football player, before becoming president -- of the Screen Actors Guild. (Or am I just remembering his role in Knute Rockne?)

    because I'm from Texas it always somehow bothers me to see "y'all" misspelled...the apostrophe goes between the y and the a, not the a and the l!!
