According to the New York Post, Scarlett Johansson wants the role of the No. 1 actress and pin-up of World War II, Betty Grable.
Not that there’s necessarily at this precise moment a script already written, greenlighted and ready to go about bandleader trumpet player Harry James’ movie star wife. This generation’s hotshot beauty just knows she wants to play the part.
Go for it, Scarlett, I say! Betty Grable still remains one of my most beloved Hollywood actresses and I feel Scarlett has the charisma, talent and looks to create a respectful portrayal of Betty.
I have updated the Video Archive with five talk show videos dating back to 2005 and 2003; The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, The Early Show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and two different episodes of Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Happy downloading!
The Other Boleyn Girl (Dec. 21)
â€¢ Players and premise
Scarlett Johansson is sweet Mary, who enjoys a dalliance with Henry VIII (Eric Bana). Natalie Portman is scheming sister Anne, who has more ambitious designs on the lusty king. Portman has hinted that her formidable co-star won’t be a total pushover.
The source material by Philippa Gregory and an Oscar-bait opening date suggests this is being positioned as more than just an excuse to display pouty lips and heaving bosoms.
â€¢ Heat index
“Johansson’s wide-eyed, blond innocence will be perfect as the manipulated Mary, and Portman’s steamy dark passion could well be the best Anne Boleyn ever.”

This is a little off-topic but I wanted to inform those of you who might still have interest in Borgia – it seems that the production is back up and running with Lindsay Lohan replacing Scarlett Johansson in the role of Lucrezia Borgia. Third time’s a charm for Neil Jordan (Breakfast on Pluto) who penned and will finally direct Borgia with Warner Independent Pictures. Filming is expected to start in late 2007 in Rome, Italy.

The results are in and with Scarlett Johansson topping the list of best celebrity bodies, itâ€™s clear that Glamour readers think curves are back. Other stars in the top ten included Jessica Alba, Gisele Bundchen and Jennifer Aniston.
