Eva Mendes 

Cuban-American actress Eva Mendes showed off her comedic chops in The Other Guys last year, but it was her tough-cookie attitude that originally got her noticed. In 2003 she played the lead female role in 2 Fast 2 Furious as Monica Fuentes, an undercover U.S. Customs agent who decides to take on a Miami drug cartel. And later that year she played another government agent alongside Johnny Depp in Once Upon a Time in Mexico. Keep your eye out for Mendes; she’s got projects with Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington and Matthew McConaughey in the works.
