Kacy Catanzaro left adoring “American Ninja Warrior” onlookers awestruck, with a highly impressive performance at the 2014 finals in Dallas. She will be making her way  to Las Vegas as the first woman in ANW history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

NBC’s athletically demanding competition series pits super-athletes against some of the worlds most challenging obstacles. It’s no surprise that a bulk of the competitors are well versed in mixed martial arts, parkour and/or gymnastics.

Enter Green Arrow, or more accurately Stephen Amell of the CW’s increasingly popular “Arrow.” It may not be well know, but Amell actually performs a good 75 percent of his own stunts. If you are a fan of the show, you should not be that surprised. The often shirtless athletic actor has an apparent penchant for pushing out dialogue amidst rigorous exercise scenes.

Well apparently Amell’s “Superhero Workout” video caught the eye of Catanzaro.

She posted the following on Amell’s Facebook video’s thread:

“his form is just tip-top. Maybe he could teach me some things. I wouldn’t hate that.”

Don’t ask me why I was reading through Amell’s facebook posts. It will likely make my evenings, or apparent lack there of, seem suspect. In any event, it happened and Amell obliged Catanzaro and the ANW production team shortly thereafter.

Given Catanzaro’s alleged interest in becoming a Hollywood stunt woman, could we potentially see a ANW and “Arrow” crossover in the near future? Catanzaro has definitely proven she has athletic drive, but I wonder how well she can act? I guess we will just have to wait and see what comes of this, but my fingers are crossed for something spectacular.

The CW’s “Arrow” season three is set to kick off in October. Tune in or “you have failed this city!”

Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path.From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film.Recently, Pooya was approached by FilmFad.com to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at FilmFad.com, he was home.
