Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (January 11, 2008)

Openly bisexual actor Kristanna Loken has a small role in the Uwe Boll film In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, which opens today. (Yes, Boll is the guy who directed the awful BloodRayne, which nonetheless gave us a great Michelle Rodriguez/Kristanna Loken sword fight.)

Here’s the premise of the film, as described at the film’s official site:

The life of a hardworking man known only as Farmer (Jason Statham) is changed forever when a marauding band of Krug — animalistic brutes in the thrall of an evil sorcerer — thunders down upon the unsuspecting village of Stonebridge, killing his son and kidnapping his wife, Solana (Claire Forlani). Galvanized by his grief, the one peace-loving peasant leads his mentor Norick (Ron Perlman) and brother-in-law Bastian (Will Sanderson) in pursuit of the Krug army to free Solana.

Kristanna plays someone named Elora. I have no idea who Elora is, but judging from the trailer and some of the stills from the movie, she’s often wearing leather and being acrobatic.

What I’ve always found interesting is that Uwe Boll manages to get the oddest people into his movies. In the Name of the King also stars Burt Reynolds as King Konreid and Leelee Sobieski (remember her as Joan of Arc?) as Muriella, who seems to be some kind of princess/fighting lady (see photo above). OK, that doesn’t convince me to see the film either.

But if you’re in Los Angeles this weekend, you can see Kristanna Loken in person. She’ll be making an appearance at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention on Jan. 13.

"The set was a blast. Like Gay Camp ’07."
