Jessica Biel’s name isn’t synonymous with character pieces, but we’ve got pics to prove that she’s ready to take a stab with the Hitchcock remake Easy Virtue.
Today brings us some pics of the former “7th Heaven” sexpot as the role of Larita Huntington, an American divorcée branded with the slanderous title of an easy virtue, given to divorced women of the era. Judging from the pics, it looks like she might be able to pull it off. Have at it with the sex jokes, boys.
The film is based on a Noel Coward play and set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month.
I personally thought Biel wasn’t too bad in The Illusionist, and it can never hurt to act alongside Colin Firth and Kristin Scott Thomas, both accomplished period stars. Besides, we have to give Biel props for the “timeless classic” Summer Catch, as well as the Jonathan Taylor Thomas epic I’ll be Home for Christmas.
Do you think Jessica Biel will break out in this role? Who’s your favorite Jessica in Hollywood?
