Jennifer Lawrence is having a great year. After breaking out in Winter’s Bone, she quickly lined up roles in The Beaver and X-Men: First Class. Now she has her sights set on a role in Crazy Heart director Scott Cooper’s Lie Down In Darkness.
"I am obsessed with that part. I have this feeling of protectiveness over characters I want to play. I worry about them — if someone else gets the part, I’m afraid they won’t do it right."
The former star of "The Bill Engvall Show" goes on to say:
"I’m trying to write the director of ‘Lie Down in Darkness’ a letter to convince him that I should be in his movie. I’ll chase him if I have to. I’ll sit outside his house." She laughed. "I’m beside myself over that script. When I get like that, anything’s possible."
Ruh-roh. Looks like we’ve got another Sean Young on our hands. I’ve already called the police. (W Magazine)
