Katherine Heigl Is In The Money

| Filed under: Reese WitherspoonFilm FlickersKatherine Heigl


Does anyone even see her movies?!

Katherine Heigl will take a hiatus from being extremely unlikable to star in One for the Money, based on the Janet Evanovich novel of the same name. She will play Stephanie Plum, an unemployed lingerie buyer who becomes a bounty hunter to support herself.

Although it sounds shiteous, Reese Witherspoon was previously attached to the role, but because it lay dormant for several years, she dropped out.

Heigl's just sloppy seconds. Ha!

    Mario is a loser in court just like he is a loser in life…
    From TM-Z…

    "You'll recall Liborio Molina socked Perez outside of a club in Toronto back in June — so Perez sued Molina but today lawyers were in court and announced a confidential settlement.

    Our sources say as part of the settlement, Molina will donate money to charity."
    Hey Fatboy, I thought you were going to take this guy to the cleaners and get soooooo rich. I guess you being such a foul, hate-filled person doesn't go over well in court. BTW - he only has to donate $500 or more to charity of HIS choice, not Fatboy's
    $500 to punch you in your ugly, mongoloid face? As my dad would say; "That's a BARGOON!!!"

    NO!!!!! She will not make a good Stephanie Plum - neither would have Reese Witherspoon. Go to Janetevanovich.com to see who the readers want as the characters from the books. This could go for a long time there are currently 14 novels.

  3. 3

    The books are great, though not sure if it will turn into a movie that well. Probably been on hold for so long for a reason…..

  4. 4

    Bounty hunter? As in… action movie? That's unexpected.

  5. 5

    27 dresses: 160 million$
    the ugly truth: 205 million$
    knocked up: 219 million$
    so ya, a lot of people see her movies…

  6. 6

    NO! NO! Love those books & she will be a terrible Stephanie Plum!

  7. 7

    They can find someone WAY better than her to play Stephaine Plum!

  8. 8

    This is a lady that rescues 100's of dogs off the streets of LA and gets them to safety. people who have hearts and give of themselves should not be labelled #1 bitch what are you doing for charity or from the heart. i like your site but hate your comments, let people make their own opinions rather than listen to your slanted opinions. from fellow rescuer of california dogs. the only dog is you for speaking of her like that

  9. 9

    This is the worst news ever. I love the Stephanie Plum books and Katherine Heigl is soooooo not Stephanie Plum. The powers that be need to seriously reconsider their choice.

  10. 10

    OMG!!!! I love Janet Evanovich's books. They are awesome. I just hope Katherine doesnt screw Stephanie up, Reese would have made a better choice. Also there are 2 delicious latino men in Stephanie's life..I wonder who will play them..that's who Im interested in seeing!!!

  11. 11

    I seriously hate her. I wish she would just fuck right off and never come back.

  12. 12

    Sandra Bullock would be a good Stephaine Plum!

  13. 13


    i LOVE janet evanovich's books, Stephanie PIum has been "with me" for almost a decade.
    Katherine Heigl doesn't fit AT ALL
    why would they choose her? I like Katherine Heigl, but anyone who has read the book(s) will agree that she does not fit!!

  14. 14

    that is the worst casting ever. Stephanie Plum is described as having dark hair for one. Sandra Bullock would of been good but not this idiot.

  15. 15

    Why are they casting blondes for Stephanie?! :( I wanted Drew Barrymore.

    Now get to the important stuff - Morelli and Ranger? :D

  16. 16

    I would personally prefer that they pay her to NOT be in the movie. She is such a bitch really and none of her movies were any good with the exception of Knocked Up. But that was due to the writers and other casting. Not her.

  17. 17

    OOOOH, this is terribly disappointing!
    I'm an avid reader of Evanovich's books, and I just can't imagine Plum as Heigl!

    Not good. Now the movie is ruined. :|

  18. 18

    The book was great, she'll ruin the movie.

  19. 19

    I love how ReeseWitherspoon is a good mom :)

  20. 20

    She will be an awful Stephanie Plum!!! This is a great series that needs Sandra Bullock and Queen Latifah (tell me she wouldn't make a great Lulu?!)

  21. 21

    This is terrible! No! Stephanie Plum is a crazy-curly haired brunette! Ahh!

  22. 22

    Katherine is a beautiful woman, but I'm not sure she matches the Stephanie Plum character. These books are great if you haven't read them. But the character is a Jersey girl with wildly curly hair, a real tomboy type. I hope they don't ruin the book by making a hokey movie of it.
    Perez, you are way too negative a person. What problem do you have with this woman?

  23. 23

    I wonder who they'll get to play the Ranger character. He sounds so dangerously sexy in the books.

  24. 24

    I love Katherine. She's gorgeous, a great actress, and seems pretty down to earth. Don't hate if you can't relate!

  25. 25

    These books are GREAT!!! And I can picture Katherine playing the HILARIOUS Stephanie Plum….I can't wait!!!!

  26. 26

    i don't like her one bit!

  27. 27

    oh stop being such a hater

  28. 28

    Agreed, Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock would a WAY better choice to play Stephanie. Mo'Nique could be Lulu.

  29. 29

    Stephanie deserves better than Katherine, she doesn't look at all like stephanie would.

  30. 30

    Love her!

  31. 31

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! She'll completely ruin it. She's too tall for one, and too blonde!

    BTW Perez, read the books before hating on them. They're great!

  32. 32

    Marrisa Tomei would be great as Stephanie Plum, and The Rock as Ranger:) YUM

  33. 33

    WTF? How did Janet Evanovich approve of this???? Katherine Heigl may be a good actress, but she was seriously miscast as Stephanie Plum. Anyone who has read the books knows this.

  34. 34

    Oh oh no. Nope. No way. I like her movies, but she's no Stephanie Plum. Sandra Bullock would be amazing, as would Drew Barrymore. And Morelli and Ranger? Benjamin Bratt as Morelli and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as Ranger.

  35. 35

    I'm glad that the Stephanie Plum series is becoming a movie, but Katherine Heigl?! Really!? They had better get a good Lula and a great Grandma Mazur, that's all I gotta say…

  36. 36

    Oh no. So wrong. She's so not right for that character (I've read all of the Stephanie P books). I was thinking Zooey Deschanel or some likeable unknown would be better. (Hell, the Chocolate Rain guy would be better in the role than Katherine H!!! ;p)

  37. 37

    Now we know the movie sucks she sucks at acting.

  38. 38


  39. 39

    I always pictured Stephanie Plum as sort of a Fran Drescher type….definitely NOT Katherine Heigl. I could never even go see the movie if she was the one starring in it.

  40. 40

    WTF?? I am so not going to get that woman stuck in my head as Stephanie Plum!

  41. 41

    shut up perez, heigel is awesome. the ugly truth was hiiiilarious and 27 dresses was awesome. you just decided you hated her ass for some reason so you trash everything about her.

  42. 42

    Luvved the books! Hope they don't mess up the movies!

  43. 43

    Don't knock the books you douche! The books are awesome and Heigl will ruin it! She's NOT Stephanie Plum at all!!!

  44. 44

    NOOOOO…Katherine is horrible. Put Sandra Bullock, Stephanie had dark hair and Bullock totally fits the description

  45. 45

    Okay, i'm not a fan of heigl either. But she's not sloppy seconds-most movies cast actors who drop out and get replaced. it's just part of the game.

  46. 46

    I love the Stephanie Plum Series but I can't picture Katherine Heigl as Stephanie.. I always pictured Sandra Bullock.. As long as they get Benjamin Bratt for Ranger then you can count me in!!!!

  47. 47

    OMG.. I can't believe how many people agree that Sandra Bullock would be the perfect Stephanie lol.. Great minds think alike!!! Have no clue who would make a good Morelli but dammmmmm Benjamin Bratt would really be perfect as Ranger.. he's so DAMMM smoking hot!

  48. 48

    Sandra Bullock needs to play Stephanie Plum, I'm a plum fan and it would be exciting to see it hit the movies but I hope it stays true to the books and doesn't become a disaster

  49. 49

    Hey stop bad mouthing this woman…she and her charity have helped hundreds (thousands ?) of animals and that makes her the top gal in my book..she doesn't do it for fame, just from the heart…the very BEST of people!

  50. 50

    Perez! You are so missing out on these Janet Evanovich novels!!!! There are 15 of them and they are all bestsellers!!! One comes out each year. Stephanie Plum is a funny bitch who loves everyone, especially her gays!!!! I have been waiting for these to be made into movies for soooo long!!!! I don't know about Katharine Heigl playing Stephanie Plum, but don't diss the novels until you actually read them!!!! Janet Evanovich puts humor, friendship, mystery, crime, love, lust, and family together in a way you would never believe!!!!

  51. 51

    I am soooooooo disappointed in the casting for this movie….neither her nor Reese are right for this role if you ask me. Anybody who has read the Stephanie Plum books will understand. :-(

  52. 52

    Re: kkklkj – It's not about how much money she makes we are just saying she is not right for the role if you are into this book series.

  53. 53

    Re: ~~Jasmine~~ – i was only replying to perez's question:
    "Does anyone even see her movies?!"

  54. 54

    Sandra Bullock is Stephanie Plum. I don't care that she's a little old for the role, they should have started filming a long time ago. Great book series….

  55. 55

    Ha ha that's so funny, I posted about Sandra Bullock without reading any other posts. So it must be true!!!!

  56. 56

    NOOOOO! Sandra Bullock would be a much better Stephanie Plum!!! C'mon

  57. 57

    NO NO NO NO. Love this book series, but this so-called actress is not Stephanie Plum. NO NO NO. I am so disappointed, since I was looking forward to this movie. But with a good and personable actress, which Katherine Hegil is not. This is sad. So sad. I don't care that she saves animals, that has NOTHING to do with her not being capable to handling this role or being remotely right for this role.
    She is not, and I will have to reason to throw money to this disaster of a movie.

  58. 58

    GOD NOOOOOOO i was so excited when there was talk of making a movie, i LOVE LOVE LOVE the books. now, i seriously am considering never ever ever seeing it if it makes it to the big screen. reese would have been such a better choice. i cannot stand the idea of giant teeth playing such a beloved character come to life. bad, bad move.

  59. 59

    BTW Witherspoon seems to be dropping in the money race. She used to get 20 million a picture; then I saw she did one for 15. Now Vanity Fair has her doing roles for 10 million, half of what she was paid at her peak. No recent winners, I guess.

  60. 60

    Other than PH's obvious dislike for Heigel, this post is bizarre. Heigel's last few movies have made big box office money here - and even bigger abroad. As for the "shiteous" plot, like it or not - the book was the first of one of the biggest female detective series in print. One For THe Money was on the NY Times list of notable books, and the past 12+ in the series were each NY Times bestsellers. The movie might suck - sure. And the character is so beloved that she might not be what readers picture (I still see a Rachel McAdams). Heigel,however, is still big box office and the book(s) remain hot properties. Its not the author's fault she didnt write them to star some CW starlet or reality show castoff who is a sycophant of PH. Sheesh.

  61. 61

    I LOVE the Stephanie Plum books, but this casting is soooo awful! She will not make a good Stephanie Plum, I'm not sure they should even try to make a movie from the books.

  62. 62

    But Stephanie Plumm is supposed to be a brunette and ITALIAN.

  63. 63

    more importantly who will be Ranger and Morelli. I think the Rock would work although Ranger isn't quite so big.

  64. 64


  65. 65

    Um her movies have made SHIT LOADS of money so stfu

  66. 66

    Nooooooooo. She will NOT make a good Stephanie Plum. NO NO NO. and NO This is probably one of THE best series of books.

  67. zebra says – reply to this


    the books are good, but katherine will suck in it. wrong choice of actress.

  68. 68

    The Janet Evanovich books are extremely funny and very, very popular (that's right, Janet has millions and millions of fans. Just because Perez is completely clueless about something that falls outside the sphere of Snooki or spying on Jennifer Garner's children doesn't mean it doesn't exist). Anyway I can't see her being able to pull off the slapstick element that Stephanie has.

  69. 69

    love her so shut ur fat ass up u ugly tub of lard

  70. 70

    Re: po.d in canada – well said. katherine is an amazing actress as well.

  71. 71

    Re: qawsed – i wish that about you.

  72. 72

    Re: jillbeans – no she doesnt' have you seen any of her work? especially on grey's.

  73. 73

    Stop Bitchin about Katherine just because you don't like her. She's a great actress and her movies did pretty well at the box office. Would like to see you do that by the time you're 30, perez.

  74. 74

    Nooooooooo. She's sooo not Stephanie.

    I always thought Debra Messing would make a good Stephanie.

  75. 75

    Well, we know you don't read, but if you did, you see this was a PERFECT decision. Heigl is totally perfect to play Stepanie. Now, if they could only get Monique to play Luna and Betty White to play Stephanie's grandmother, this would be a killer movie.

  76. 76

    Re: face_time – Read the book. Bounty Hunter is putting is loosly. She claims to be the worlds worst.

  77. 77

    Re: kmrota – Ummmm, it's Luna.

  78. 78

    I love the book, and although I think Katherine is okay and sometimes funny, I think Sandra Bullock would have been brilliant.

  79. 79

    Re: kmrota – I was thinking Mo'nique or Neecy(?) Nash, but the Queen would be great too. :)

  80. 80

    I love this chick. Katherine is a fantastic romantic-comedy actress and I seriously watch her movies over and over and over again, and each time still am amused. I don't know why you hate her so much. And why do you hate Drew Berrymore? She's the one woman I would turn lesbo for. Drew - you interested??? haha.

  81. 81

    The books are GREAT…. however, their are 15 of them to date… so maybe it would be best to get someone a little more dedicated….. incase they are worth watching!

  82. 82

    Re: Alliestp – #77 ITS LULA……Get you facts straight before you correct someone

  83. 83

    Re: Alliestp – Have you even read the books? It is Lulu

  84. 84

    Re: KissThis – #83…Have YOU ever read the books?….Its Lula

  85. 85

    FUCKING love herr!!! i wanna meet her so bad, come to nyc kat!! loove uuu!! email me mdiaz84@aol.com heheh

  86. 86

    what is your beef with her?

  87. 87

    Stephanie - Debra Messing
    Dad - Robert de Nero
    Mum - The mother from Six Feet Under
    Grandma - Betty White

    I'm lost about Morelli and Ranger, though Ranger could have been played by a young Jimmy Smits.

  88. 88

    can't stand this bitch. srsly she is awful.
