Jessica Alba is Broadway Bound

Jessica Alba is Broadway Bound

Jessica Alba is being courted to star in a Broadway revival of David Mamet‘s Speed-the-Plow in the spring, according to The NY Post.

Speed-the-Plow is a satirical dissection of the American movie business and although Alba doesn’t have any stage experience whatsoever, Broadway still wants her! Sounds perfect for her since she pokes fun of Hollywood anyway…

The play was first performed by the Lincoln Center Theater at NYC’s Royale Theater in 1988, with Madonna in the cast. Yes, that Madonna. She too had no stage experience when she took the role of secretary Karen.

    #4 haha sorry!

    she’s so pretty it’s unreal.

  • Oh lord

    She’s going to be the joke of Broadway. She can’t act in movies, why do they think she’s going to be any better on stage?

  • Brad Addict

    Jessica is so hot and she’s a good actress

  • nickolodeon

    Good actress indeed, not to mention, sucessful~~

  • Ha!

    Seriously? A good actress? OMG.

  • nickolodeon

    if she isnt? how come so sucessful? all those movies?

  • talula

    She’s successful because men and boys think with their pen-ises.

  • NOOO!

    Seriously, David Mamet is a stage god. I cannot believe he would let any of his wonderful work go to someone who has no talent.

  • lorena

    hei eheiee eeeeeee

    jessica

  • Regina

    That’s the play gone down the pooper. Seriously a Mamet play and they cast Alba?! Are you kidding me?!

  • http://justjared back off bitches.

    Love the color of her dress.

  • Ha!

    She’s successful because she’s hot looking and men want to sleep with her. Come on. The girl couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag. Have you SEEN Fantastic Four? She is the definition of wooden.

  • Emily

    Yeah! She isn’t a good actress.

  • TEALEAF

    She is SO overrated in the looks and acting dept.

  • Hi

    What? Has anyone seen Honey? Yikes. Mamet, Noooooooo! Maybe he’s being genuis for putting Alba in a satire that makes fun of Hollywood. Her acting is a joke, afterall. I could hardly think of anyone worse.

  • icky

    condolence to Broadway….

    The above is a pic of that HerpWH0RE! Wasn’t she not ever goiung to do nudes? Is it because she got bumps on her Vadge?

    And isn’t she the worlds ONE NIGHT STAND LOVER?? I wonder how she got herpes? Maybe she gave it to Jeter!

  • nope

    er yeah jared that picture of her is months old!!

    She is a very good actress, I would love everyone who calls her a bad actress to go on stage and see how wonderful they are at it.

  • Ha!

    Again. VERY GOOD actress?? Really? I don’t disliker her, personally, but I’m also not willing to give her credit for talent she doesn’t have. She’s not the worst actress I’ve seen, but ‘very good’ is quite a stretch.

  • coco

    Bad actress. Should go back to TV

  • stefanie

    I saw Speed the Plow back in the day with Madonna, Joe Mantegna and Ron Silber
    She is not a good actress.

    I don’t know if Jessica would be any better. I think she’s trying to get acting props.

  • Ha!

    Maybe the part calls for a not-so-good actress? Hmmmm…

  • michelle

    Oh no!!! I love that play and they always throw that role away to some dipshit and it could be such a great role. If you’ve read the play, it always gets played by a blow job queen…so there you go. That’s how she got started after all.

  • lol

    man did i discover how bad things actually were when i did theater production & development internships a few years ago for broadway & off-broadway. they will shamelessly cast anyone who they think can bring in a buck. mostly it’s the musicals that sell out but i can’t say i’m that shocked. trust me, the powers that be think she’s talentless, but since she’s popular they don’t care. and since she wants to be taken seriously she’ll probably take it.

  • pauline
