Emma Stone Should Be a Star

posted by Nell Minow

I’m hoping that this fall’s “Easy A” will give Emma Stone the breakthrough role she needs to become a major star. From “Superbad” to “The Rocker,” “Zombieland,” “The House Bunny,” and even “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past,” she has demonstrated the ability to zero in to create a fully-realized character instantly, and she has some of the most powerful screen charisma of her generation. Here’s a clip that is just plain adorable.

  • Phil

    Just read she is going to star in the movie The Help with Viola Davis by Dreamworks. Should be huge. Bases on the book The Help which has sold a jillion copies

  • Dena

    I think she’s great too. She has some of the best charisma I’ve seen on screen in a long time.

    Thanks, Dena! And Phil, that is sensational news! Viola Davis is also one of my very favorites. It’s perfect casting.

    Wasn’t fond of her when she won the audition for a remake (did it ever air?) of the Partridge Family as Laurie! Sorry, but her lisp annoyed me terribly…Never had a desire to see the movies she was in either but I forced myself to watch this clip and was I pleasantly surprised! I just hope the rest of the movie proves me right in saying that she has evolved into a descent actress and won me over! PS…I always liked the song…my kids got sick of it, but I never did, so that helps!

    I forgot about that awful “Partridge Family” remake idea! Glad you liked the clip and I hope you like the movie, too.
