Biel, 27, played the role of Sarah Brown, a missionary in Manhattan who goes up against a gang of gamblers but falls in love with one of them.
“I haven’t really done anything like this,” Jessica told the Associated Press after a dress rehearsal Friday. “Well, I did one thing in college. In college, I did a concert version of ‘Tommy’ when I was in college. But, other than that … .”
This role is quite different than Jessica’s last movie called “Powder Blue”, where she played a tough-as-nails stripper.
“No, definitely not what you would think to go from ‘this’ into this,” Jessica replied when asked about the stretch from role to role. “But that’s the fun of this world. That’s what I love about this job. You get to do something like that and then you go completely extreme to the other side of it, and terrify yourself in some other way. It’s really about terrorizing myself.”
Jessica was asked if she would like to perform on Broadway. She replied, “Oh, yeah. I would love to. Literally, that is one of my eight-year-old dreams. That’s like my little eight-year-old inside me is cartwheeling around, thinking about that idea.”
