Head on over to my page if you’d like, another face has been added and it’s a nice face! It’s Zooey Deschanel’s turn to have her film/TV career looked at. Click here and scroll down the actors I’ve selected so far and keep on a scrollin’ to find Zooey at the bottom to see what my favourite film of hers is and there be some links of her away from the big screen down there too! Here’s a taster of the acting brick road format:
BEST PERFORMANCE: She’s marvellous in ‘500 Days of Summer’ and brilliantly quirky in ‘The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy’. Her performance as one half of honeymoon loved up then troubled couple in 500 days is splendid though and you still like her even though the film is being seen from the male point of view in a relationship.
NOT SO BEST PERFORMANCE: ‘The Happening’ is a film that should never have even happened, another M. Night Shyamalan idea that tried being too clever and twisty for its own good. Killer plants for Pete sake, terrible. She isn’t great in it, she seems wooden and her chemistry with Mark Wahlberg is bad too. A movie that cost me too much at the cinema and I won’t ever forget it!
FAMILY FRIENDLY: She’s done voicework for the penguin surfing animation ‘Surf’s Up’ and ‘Elf’ is a classic christmas film that could be watched over and over again where her blonde looks work in the romantic interest and co-worker element for Will Ferrell’s naive Buddy elf. It’s also an opportunity for her to demonstrate her singing talent. ‘Bridge to Terabithia’ even with it’s emotional story is a film that would be family viewing material. She’s a woman who will easily get offered for these kinds of films as she’s got a recognisable voice.
MATURE ROLE: The film that stands out would be ‘The Happening’ which features suicide, blood and swearing. However bad the film may be it still is a thriller and would be too suspenseful for younger ones. ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’ is also a more adult feature with a lengthy running time to make kids fidgety and a story that is more aimed at older eyes.
