Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street opens tomorrow as one of the most anticipated movies of the year–and even in a cast of characters that’s full of party gals and hookers and strippers, you still can’t miss Madison McKinley. She always stands out in pretty much any production. Not always as a mere actress, either. In fact, Wolf of Wall Street gives Madison McKinley the kind of credit that’s been long overdue for this offbeat beauty.
A lot of people might know Madison best for her stint on the reality television show The Bachelor, where she added some surreal moments as a vampire contestant. That was back in 2011, when Madison (calling herself “Madison Garton” appeared on the show baring some fangs and announcing that she was a member of the New York Underground Vampire Club. We hate to accuse any reality show of being less than real, but we always thought it was kind of obvious that Madison was there for mere shock value.
After all, she’ nailed some classy comic cameos in episodes of 30 Rock and Flight of the Conchords even before appearing on The Bachelor. At least The Bachelor didn’t screw up her career–and Madison might even be able to credit the show for getting her on the big screen via a role in 2011’s The Smurfs. She played a model in that kiddie film, and sure looked the part.
Madison’s kept working ever since, and we’ve very happy to see that she’ll join Kate Upton in the upcoming The Other Woman–where she’s playing a character named “Madison.” We don’t know what that means, but we’ve already gathered some Kate Upton GIFs from the movie. Now we have another reason to be standing in line on The Other Woman‘s opening day. You’ll be joining us after you check out these marvelous Madison moments…
