Plucky Talladega Nights love interest and sex-tigress Amy Adams may soon put on a habit to play a nun. The Hollywood Reporter says she’s negotiating to join the cast of a movie called Doubt, based on a Pulitzer Prize-winning book. Even though I know Pulitzer is pronounced Pyoo-lit-zer in my head I still hear Pull-it-zer every time I read it. You can take the boy out of the trailer park but you can’t take the trailer park out of the boy I guess.
The movie based on a book which won an award I can’t properly pronounce, is about a nun in a tense confrontation in which a Bronx Catholic school principal accuses a priest of being a pedophile. He’s a priest, that’s probably all the evidence she needs. Meryl Streep is already on board as the Catholic school principal, and Philip Seymour Hoffman has been cast to play the boy-loving man of god.
The interesting thing here is that it’s supposed to be a period piece, set in the 60s. And you thought priests started diddling kids in the 90s! Apparently they’ve had horrifying things going on under their robes for decades.
