Emma Stone looking to star in Kathryn Stockett’s The Help
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Emma Stone is starting to get some real projects on her resume. After signing on to star with Steve Carell in his next movie, she’s now taking on more serious fare with THE HELP. If she officially lands the gig, she’ll play Skeeter, a writer that interviews a housemaid in Jackson, MS in the early 1960’s. The interviews spread through the community and eventually cause turmoil for everyone involved.
This is a more serious role for Stone and a definite departure from her usual comedies like SUPERBAD or ZOMBIELAND. I actually really like Emma Stone and think she has a bright future in Hollywood. My one problem with her is when she wears her hair over her eyes (like in ZOMBIELAND). I know that sounds frivolous, but when she wears her hair in her eyes, she constantly moves it aside with her hands and I find it distracting. That, and I feel the overwhelming need to giver her a hair tie.
