Jessica Alba Does Even More Dancing in Sin City 2

When we think assless chaps, we think Matthew McConaughey. But let's not forget that Jessica Alba was dancing in stripper pants long before McConaughey even thought to design his for Magic Mike. And she could very well steal back her thunder when she returns as exotic dancer Nancy in Sin City 2. "I had to learn a bunch of dance sequences for it," Alba told us at a Sundance party for A.C.O.D. "I do a lot more dancing in this one." So much more that she needed three months to prep for the part. "It was kind of crazy," she said. "It was very, very difficult, and you’ll see why." We are intrigued. As for the comedy she was in Park City to promote (she plays one of the adult children of divorce), she said she was "grateful" to work with such a funny cast. "I tried to be cool around, like, Amy Poehler and Adam Scott," she said. "But I’m not." (Cinema, Jessica Alba, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For)

I just love her. She needs to do more action drama movies.

Well she can't act, so she may as well do something to keep my attention when she's on-screen.

whoever disagreed with you needs to go watch fantastic four again.

Using Fantastic Four as an example of anything other than Fox's post-X2 ineptitude is pointless.

There's obviously a clear consensus on Filmwatch; that Jessica Alba is more than just eye-candy, she is the next Meryl Streep.

Who could forget the great characters that she portrayed since her breakthrough film role in Sin City:

Sue Storm (Fantastic 4)
Cam (Good Luck Chuck)
Sam (Awake)
Jane (The Love Guru)
Morely (Valentines Day)
Andi (Little Fockers)
Marissa (Spy Kids 4)

A true Hollywood great.

I agree, she's a bad actress and it's getting to the point where people don't really care about her anymore. I just hope she doesn't talk too much in this movie and sticks to dancing.
StarWarsFan  +   1033d ago
If she's doing more dancing, I assume she doesn't have much else to do in the movie.

she is not very good in the acting area but this type of movie is more style than substance. she needs to be more sexier/revealing this time around compared to the 1st installment to make the movie better overall, i know a lot of big names are already cast in this movie and jessica alba's role just needs to be plain sexy.
