So, I'm trying to bang out my review of Charlie Wilson's War, and it just occurred to me that the belly dancer looked awfully familiar -- because she's, like, Dallas Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips' daughter. Yup, that's Tracy Phillips, who, says here, trained for the role with someone named Princess Farhana. After the jump, Phillips' scene, at least as it's featured briefly in the trailer. Also note: Though she doesn't officially have a name in the film, her character is ostensibly based on Fort Worth belly dancer Carol Shannon. --Robert Wilonsky
