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.

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?

Good actress indeed, not to mention, sucessful~~

Seriously? A good actress? OMG.

nickolodeon @ 11/07/2007 at 11:10 am

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

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

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.

hei eheiee eeeeeee


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

Love the color of her dress.

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.

Yeah! She isn’t a good actress.

She is SO overrated in the looks and acting dept.

save broadway..

Jessica has HERPES!! @ 11/07/2007 at 1:46 pm

If men want to slep with her; they are going to get HERPES…

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.

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!

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.
