Don't Trust The B---'s Krysten Ritter Joins Tim Burton's Biopic Big Eyes image
Is it still called typecasting if it's entirely based on the actor's looks? For instance, Krysten Ritterís dark and pronounced features, combined with some of her past work, deem her fitting for the world of Tim Burton, and itís surprising (at least to me) that the two havenít worked together in the past. Then again, it could be because Burton consistently works with the same seven people in every film.

His next project, the biographical drama Big Eyes, is breaking out of that mold, and Deadline reports Ritter has joined the filmís cast, which already includes Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz and Danny Huston. Not swayed by the cancellation of her sitcom Donít Trust the B---- In Apartment 23, she took to Twitter after the news broke: ďOver the moon!! Itís been a dream to work with Tim Burton! Dream big kiddies!Ē

The titular Big Eyes refer to the kitschy paintings of Margaret (Adams) and Walter Keane (Waltz), and the impending implosion of their relationship centered on arguments over the true creator behind those creepy children and their optical enlargements. Ritter will star as DeeAnn, a ďfree-spirited confidanteĒ to Margaret, and it sounds like sheíll be the one who incites Margaretís lawsuits against her then ex-husband.

Ritter is currently filming the Scot Armstrong-directed comedy Search Party and just might reappear in some way in the upcoming half-season of Breaking Bad as Jane, at least if IMDB can be believed. And itís kind of hard to believe she hasnít signed on for at least a cameo in the Veronica Mars movie yet.
