>While we still think of her most fondly as Detective Chief Inspector Jane Tennison from the Prime Suspect series, we’re delighted that this year’s Oscars have brought new attention to the prolific hotness that is Helen Mirren.

Of course, there’s another infamous role that most likely won’t be a topic of discussion when she has dinner with the QE2. Back during that brief era when it was a risque but acceptable move for a “legitimate” actor to appear in an explicit bit of filmmaking, Mirren portrayed Caesonia, wife of the crazed emperor and “the most promiscuous woman in Rome,” in Gore Vidal’s ‘Caligula’.

Perhaps instead they can chat about the bit of video that’s been making an on-again, off-again appearance around YouTube the past year, namely Trailer for a Remake of Gore Vidal’s ‘Caligula’:

From our extensive research, we understand that the trailer, featuring a stunning and good-natured Mirren, is but a spoof (or, “art”, if you really must insist). We’d like to suggest that some savvy investor consider otherwise and step forward with the funding for what could surely be Helen Mirren’s next Oscar-worthy vehicle.
