This is because Jessica Biel is beautiful, as the results of any recent 'which celebrity would you like to sleep with most, you delusional civilian?' survey are only too happy to point out. So far, Jessica Biel's movie career has mainly consisted of her playing a succession of smiling leggy cleavages – but all of that changes now, because the chance has arisen for Jessica Biel to take on the role of a lifetime. There's a new Justice League Of America movie being made, and Jessica Biel is in talks to play Wonder Woman. That's right – this time Jessica Biel will get to expand her repertoire by playing a smiling leggy cleavage… with a piece of rope.
One of our most tenacious comment threads is for a two-year-old story about a Wonder Woman movie that almost go made but didn't. Every couple of months, when we think the comment thread is over, someone new will pop up and suggest the name of an actress who they want to play Wonder Woman, be it Carmen Electra, Kirstie Alley or Debra Messing from Will & Grace. But not even that ever-growing list of potential Wonder Womans mentioned Jessica Biel. Which is a shame, because it looks as if Jessica Biel has the Wonder Woman role in the bag.
However, Jessica Biel won't be playing Wonder Woman in a Wonder Woman film, she'll be playing Wonder Woman in the new Justice League Of America movie that'll also star Batman (but not the Christian Bale Batman) and Superman (but not the Brandon Routh Superman) along with a load of other superheroes that you've never heard of. But, hey, if Jessica Biel wants to basically have a leotard-heavy extended cameo in an ego-packed superhero movies full of impostors, that's her business. MTV reports:
Fans looking for ways to describe Jessica Biel will be able to say she's as "beautiful as Aphrodite, as wise as Athena, swifter than Mercury and stronger than Hercules" now that the 25-year-old actress is in talks to play Wonder Woman in George Miller's "Justice League of America" movie, Entertainment Weekly reports. Biel is the first actor to be officially linked with the ensemble project, which will also feature legendary DC Comics characters such as Superman, Batman, Martian Manhunter, the Flash and Green Lantern.
But perhaps a role as Wonder Woman in the Justice League Of America movie will be just what Jessica Biel needs. Because most people currently know Jessica Biel as either Justin Timberlake's girlfriend or the girl from I Now Pronounce You Chuck And Larry who may as well just have been a couple of tits and an arse dangling from a stick, so playing an already well-established role might boost her acting credentials somewhat. And also, being in a dumb superhero movie will mean Jessica Biel will get to shut up about how people don't appreciate her intelligence because she's so pretty for once. And that's good because a large part of us suspects that having an interesting conversation with Jessica Biel would be like trying to have an interesting conversation with a box of sand.
