We're talking nude scenes, and here is my list for the "Top Ten Celebrities Who Should Do Nude Scenes." Oh, and they're not in any particular order. How do you rank something as sacred as getting paid to take your clothes off?

Amy Adams
For years, Hollywood has celebrated a certain type of empowered women - a strong nosed, uber self-confident, in-your-face fighter who is going to take on the establishment using whatever means necessary to get what she wants. The archetype of this character is Erin Brockovich who famously said "They're called boobs, Ed", and screamed her way from a legal secretary to the chief factor in toppling a billion dollar company that was poisoning its customers.

But in the tradition of Melanie Grifiith's Working Girl, Amy Adams has popularized a new type of woman: one who uses her feminine grac...

James Marsden
Chances are you've come across James Marsden's dimples on the big screen and been charmed by the man behind them. There's a boyish quality to Marsden, but there's also strong leading man potential, which Marsden is finally beginning to enjoy.

The 'Justice League of America' Fantasy Casting Call

Gerard Butler
When offered a chance to make this list I thought, this is a fan boy's dream come true. I actually get to sit down and share who I think would make the best cast for the upcoming Justice League film. My opinions will be laid before you to judge, critique, and get angry over. On second thought, this might not qualify as a dream come true.

While making this list I followed a few self-imposed rules. First, I included only characters that are confirmed to be in the actual film, including the villain Maxwell Lord. You won't see my choices for Zatanna or the Green Arrow, sorry. Second, I ch...
