Keira Knightley has played a wide variety of roles in her short career: decoy, bounty hunter, damsel, pirate.
In her newest film Can A Song Save Your Life?, the Love Actually star plays a modern troubadour!
But it sounds like her next role may be the hardest yet- playing love interest to Chris Pine.
Now, now. Be brave, Keira. Close your eyes and think of England. LOLz.
Srsly, we are totally jealous! Oh, except for all the spy stuff — that sounds exhausting!
Keira has been cast in the latest Tom Clancy film Jack Ryan, a prequel to The Hunt For Red October and Clear And Present Danger.
Keira was reportedly director Kenneth Branagh's first choice for the role, though at first she wasn't interested. Guess the Thor director had to pull a Mr. Darcy and win her over!
Chris will play the title character, a CIA agent who must save Keira… and the world!
Some guys have all the luck!
