Has Jessica Alba gone too far?
Or has she just caused things to make a whole lot of sense? Superzero has solved the mystery!
This is just too much! I, like many of you on this site, have aspirations to be a writer. Maybe just more than a writer-- a screenwriter, or a comic book writer perhaps. Well, just make sure whatever you write never lands in the hands of Ms. Jessica Alba AKA: Susan Storm! In a recent interview with "Elle Magazine" the star of crappy CBM, "The Fantastic Four" and great CBM "Sin City" said something that she will most likely soon be retracting:
“Good actors, never use the script unless it’s amazing writing. All the good actors I’ve worked with, they all say whatever they want to say.”
IMHO this solves a few mysteries that fell under my Sherlock Holmes-like magnifying glass. I don't need to give ANY of you a list of reasons why "The Fantastic Four" was garbage. If I do then you probably have never read an issue of it in your life. Alba's statement just solidified what we all knew from the start and why we're all praying they don't fuck up the new one. When an actor is in it for a paycheck you'll get a performance that's as see through as....well, as Sue I suppose. I firmly believe that the duty of a writer is to make all who come into contact with the story CARE about what they see on page and screen. If a writer can put that passion into the Studio, Director, Producers, and Actors, then he or she has won. If they can't? Then we get "The Fantastic Four", "Daredevil", "Catwoman", and all that other BS.
I'll leave you with the rebuff of screenwriter John August, author of films like "Go." and "Bigfish" :
"Following your logic, you’ve never been in a movie with both good actors and amazing writing. That may be true, but it might hurt the feelings of David Wain, Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.You’re saying your co-stars who delivered their lines as written are not “good actors.” Awkward.You’re setting dangerous expectations. So if an aspiring actor wishes to be “good,” she should say whatever she wants to say? That’s pretty terrible advice."
What say you?
