Anna Faris is a Centerfold!

We've been waiting for funny-gal Anna Faris to get a lead role to suit her comedic skills for quite some time now -- and I'm not talking about the "Scary Movie" movies. Apparently Ms. Faris was tired of waiting for the perfect concept to come along, so she went to the "Legally Blonde" screenwriters and pitched her new idea. (Hey fellas, she'll be playing a centerfold!)

From Variety: "Paramount Pictures has picked up an untitled fish-out-of-water project from "Legally Blonde" scribes Karen McCullah Lutz and Kirsten Smith. Anna Faris is onboard to topline; Happy Madison is producing.

The project is based on an original idea by Faris that she brought to the writers. She'll star as a newly unemployed centerfold with no other skills to parlay into a new career. She then takes the only job she can find -- house mother at UCLA's lamest sorority."

So... it's sort of like a sillier, jigglier version of "Dead Poets Society"?

Faris is cute and all and she is "kinda" funny I guess. But she's a terrible actress! Weinberg is gushing over her way to much.

I'm not to sure about her acting, maybe we just havn't seen her in a light that really shows us what she's capable of. Because Scary Movie is not really renoun for it's high quality performances.

Terrible actress? Based on what? She has'nt really had any significant roles in films other than comedies. She's the only reason to watch any of the Scary Movies, and unlike every other female "comedienne/comedic actress", she's actually funny.

Well, maybe she hasn't been able to get any "real" acting roles if you will, because she just doesn't have the game? I call it the Jessica Alba Factor.
