I just saw a commercial for a new Pride and Prejudice movie starring (and here's the disturbing part) -- Kiera Knightly as Elizabeth Bennett. I enjoyed Bend it Like Beckham and Pirates of the Caribbean as much as the next guy, but she certainly can't be accused of having serious acting chops. An authentic British accent is not reason enough. Especially since her accent, much like her mouth, is funny. Not haha funny, but Idon'tlikeitandwantittogoaway funny. Let's let the BBC mini series stand as the dramatization of this one, ok? There's a reason that one was 300 minutes long. It's not an easily encapsulated story. !!!!
Also, I have two new (nevagonna happen celebrity) crushes. 1) The super hot dude from Stars who apparently doesn't exist, as he's not mentioned or pictured on their website. Second, and more importantly, we have Chris Walla. WONDERFULLY WEIRD!! That hair! Those cheekbones! That musical talent! The mental trip to Japan! Cohen's gotten too cool, Chris Walla is my new nerd love.
