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?

    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.

    Ha! Says:

    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.

    Hi Says:

    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.
