Because she has something quite a few actresses in Hollywood lack beyond their good looks (read: talent), we’re rooting for Kat Dennings for that star-making “break-out” role. I’ve yet to see her give a crappy performance even if the film in question is garbage. Granted this new gig will most likely not fulfill that promise just yet, but it’s another notch on her belt.
The Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist star has joined the cast of Thor according to Natalie Portman who revealed the casting bit to MTV. Just who the Hell she’ll play remains a mystery. Considering how they look alike, I assumed Dennings will play the little sister to Portman’s character Jane Foster. Seriously I have no idea.
“[MARCY LEWIS] (20) Is a college student. Aloof, jaded beyond her years, she thought her internship with scientist Kate Spelling would be an easy 6 college credits. However, she’s been stuck for months in this small New Mexico town and relegated to a wide range of unglamorous activities. Kate has been particularly hard on Marcy, making it her personal project to see that Marcy lives up to her potential. Marcy deals with her situation both by using subtle irony and by being an overt wiseass.”
If that’s not her part, it definitely fits the type of character Dennings has played in the past.
