Which smoking hot sci-fi babe rustles up Cowboys & Aliens

If you watch Fox's House, you already know her, but if you don't, you'll be seeing a lot more of her soon: the smoking hot Olivia Wilde, who will be seen this December in Tron Legacy and who has just been cast in the upcoming sci-fi western Cowboys & Aliens.

Wilde will star opposite James Bond himself, Daniel Craig, in Cowboys, which is based on the comic book and is being directed by Iron Man's Jon Favreau for producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek).

Here's how The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog reported it:

Wilde will play a character named Ella who joins up with mysterious gunslinger in an unlikely uprising against an alien invasion.

Craig is playing the gunslinger, taking over the role from Robert Downey Jr., who dropped out in January.

Kurtzman and Orci wrote the script with Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof.

In a virtual world or the Wilde West, we'd follow Olivia anywhere, wouldn't you?
