Hollywood gone wrong

Worst casting news ever: Columbia Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment have signed Katherine Heigl to play Stephanie Plum, the hapless lingerie-buyer-turned-bounty-hunter heroine of Janet Evanovich's popular series. Apparently, Reese Witherspoon was previously attached to the role (not really spot-on casting either, IMO), but still about a thousand times better than Katherine Heigl. Seriously, you have to wonder if the bigwigs at Columbia/Lakeshore have ever A) read the books, or B) seen Heigl act.

Yeah this is so not going to work for me... has she ever even done a role like a Jersey Girl?

I actually enjoy a few of Heigl's movies but I just can't see here as Stephanie. Sadly that will not stop me from paying for a movie ticket.

I know... and I'll probably be right there beside you. BUT I WILL BE RESENTFUL.

I dunno. She made a pretty good spoiled brat in My Father The Hero, and the Plum seems to get more spoiled and obnoxious as the series progresses. (I really enjoyed the first few Plum books, but really should have stopped reading them long before they hit the double-digits.)

I just keep thinking of Stephanie with the big hair, lots of makeup and her outfit... I am not sure who I would have pictured in the role but I know there are lists devoted to this.
