Career trajectory: The Queen to National Treasure: Book of Secrets
UNDETERMINED -- Mirren has said on the record that she stepped into Jerry Bruckheimer's National Treasure sequel purely for monetary reasons. But we have to wonder, couldnt she have fit in another prestige picture beforehand? Perhaps fellow Brit (and Queen) Judi Dench can give Mirren some tips on how to mix it up a little -- otherwise, she's our prime suspect for cashing out after Oscar.
