Whisper Price Game: False Teens Edition
This week's Whisper Price Game will feature young starlets who may play teens on screen, but are twentysomething in real life.
Alexis Bledel's "Traveling Pants" are a modest success-- and I hear the book it's based on has two sequels already published. Plus, Gilmore Girls seems to be getting stronger with age. So Bledel's stock is on the rise, well, her non-HSX stock anyway.
Mandy Moore was great in "Saved!" and didn't screw up her star vehicles "A Walk to Remember" and "Chasing Liberty" [not that I saw either of those...okay, I may have caught part of "A Walk to Remember", but I swear I didn't like it]. And her upcoming movie looks good--John Turturro's "Romance & Cigarettes" with James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Steve Buscemi, Kate Winslet, Christopher Walken, Eddie Izzard, Mary-Louise Parker. . .wait, it's a musical? WTF?
Taryn Manning wavers between Tara Reid infamy and Angelina Jolie cool in my opinion [two extreme poles, to be sure]. But look at those credits. That's gotta count for some pocket change, right? I mean, she suffered through Britney's "Crossroads" and came back swingin'.
And finally, there's Elisha Cuthbert, who played the ever-annoying Kim Bauer on 24 and starred with Chad Mikey Murray and Paris Hilton in "House of Wax". She's also somewhat memorable in "Old School" for being in high school and sleeping with Luke Wilson. And Geeky Roommate swears that "The Girl Next Door" was surprisingly good.
So how much would you pay to get these ladies playing teens in your movie? Who would get the most, who would get the least from you? Comment away...
