Default Jaguars on the big screen

I'm sure there are plenty of films and shows with Jaguars but I hoped we could see how many we could all remember and list:

night in rodanthe



Inspector Morse



Austin Powers



The Saint



James Bond


Minder


The italian Job (old version)

Double Jeopardy
Bruce Greenwood character drove an XK8 cabrio



The Punisher (Thomas Jane version, not Dolph Lundgren)
the baddie's wife (played by a really hot Laura Harring) drove an XK8 convertible



And holy crap - this site makes the search so much easier:

Don't forget Batman Forever, Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, Blank Check, The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, and of course Harold and Maude.

The Odessa File, Frederick Forsyth, OK in the book it is a black and yellow XK 150 S, I guess the producers couldn't find one and so used a cream E Type instead.

The Odessa File.

The Last Run 1971, XJ6 chase scene.

The Last Run

The new "Sherlock" that aired on the BBC. Sherlock's brother, Mycroft, had a Jag. Don't know what kind. Couldn't see it very well. But loved the show!

Black XJR. Perfect choice for the shady character. Great show, I still haven't sat down and watched the last one of the three.

If you look carefully, there is a silver E type (series III 2+2) in Charles Xavier's garage in both the X-men and X-men 2 movies.

2 & 1/2 MEN Charlie Sheens character refers to having a jag in the earlier shows but not sure they actually show a shot of it other than through the windshield......did the bad guys wife drive a jag in the dolph lundgren punisher as well?

Watching some TV the other day and noticed Dick Van Dyke's character (Dr. Sloan) driving an XK140 on "Diagnosis, Murder".

Here's another list someone put together.

Kia has a new commercial with golfer Michelle Wie in a Scion cube looking car driving though a golf course with some thump from the sound system blaring loud and shows all the high end cars in a row with an older xj jag.
