Emma Stone looks to DreamWorks for Help

100%

Emma Stone is in talks to star in the upcoming DreamWorks drama THE HELP, based on the Kathryn Stockett novel of the same name. Stone will star as Skeeter, who may sound like a cast member on the upcoming season of "Jersey Shore" but is actually a recent college graduate in 1960s Mississippi. Skeeter returns home to work on her career as a writer but when she interviews the African-American maid, who speaks candidly about her experiences in the South, the shit hits the fan (so to speak).

It's something of a stretch for Stone who has played mostly in comedies to this point (though you can debate as to whether GHOSTS OF GIRLFRIENDS PAST was actually funny). The actress recently wrapped a voice role in the upcoming Fox kids flick MARMADUKE and is currently filming the anthology comedy film produced by the Farrelly brothers. Eventually she'll return for ZOMBIELAND 3D whenever that project actually gets itself underway.

While she may be a college grad in this film, she'll still be in high school this September when her next film (and first starring role) EASY A hits theaters.

Skeeter's the name of a local propane installation guy in my town. Don't know his real name.

Love Emma Stone, though, to be quite honest, few things can make me turn on an actor faster than a lousy southern accent.

This gets a green box because the mention of Skeeter took me on a trip down memory lane to the old cartoon show Doug. Now I have to find out if that show is available on DVD.

Even in absolute dreck, she is really likable and fun, and makes anything she is, a bit better (I was able to sit through "Ghosts...Past" because of her and Michael Douglas).

She's a good actress!

I have enjoyed her in everything and most of her movies are good (for the most part). She makes every movie better and she always does a good job in all of her movies. She is also very easy on the eyes as well.

I really like Emma

C'mon, she was the best part of Girlfriends Past, easily. She also shines in other mediocre comedies like House Bunny and The Rocker (although I'll admit I loved The Rocker). I hope her dramatic chops are as good as her comedic chops. I have high hopes; she strikes me as a smart cookie.
