Portman will play a warrior princes who catches McBrideís eye.
Two things here. Has Natalie Portman ever done comedy? I donít think so, and Iím interested to see how she fares. Second, warrior princess? Natalie Portman? I means heís pretty badass in her rap videos but her body type isnít usually what I think of when I think Xena types. Portman, for all her amazing skill as an actress, is kind of a waif. A beautiful, entrancing, lovely waif but still a waif. I hope sheís planning to work out. A lot.
