Damn, gurl!!! Look at you go!!!
After mesmerizing audiences in The Help and gaining cred with Al Pacino, Jessica Chastain has landed the star role in Broadway's The Heiress!!
The Juilliard alum captivated the eyes of the show's producer when she saw her act alongside Al in Salome, saying:
I was immediately struck by Jessica's talent and skill when I saw her on stage opposite Al Pacino in Salome. She is an actress with that rare ability to transition effortlessly between the stage and screen. Moises Kaufman had the vision to see Jessica as the perfect actress to play one of the great psychologically complex female characters.
BeeTeeDubs, saying an actor is something Moises Kaufman wants is a HUGE honor. HUGE.
We're super proud of this girl. She won our hearts as the ditzy, lovable blonde in The Help, and clearly she's about to win even more in NYC!!
