Her name has been popping up in more than one period drama that I've noticed lately! Jessica Chastain seems to be an actress with a growing repertoire and I'm looking forward to seeing her in The Help and The Tree of Life for starters, just 2 of the movies that she has coming out in the next year. Here are some of her period films:
The Wettest Country in the World (2012) with Tom Hardy and Shia LeBoeuf in tale of 3 brothers during Prohibition based on novel by Matt Bondurant
The Help (2011) based on bestseller by Kathrynn Stockett
Wilde Salome (2010) Al Pacino directing Oscar Wilde's adaptation of Salome
with Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, watch trailer!
Agatha Christie's Poirot :Murder on the Orient Express (2010)
David Suchet and cast of many familiar faces!
Pirates: The True Story of Blackbeard (2006)
Hallmark Channel tv movie with Angus Macfadyen (Blackbeard) and other familiar faces: Richard Chamberlain, Mark Umbers, Rachel Ward, Stacy Keach
When I learned of the casting of The Help this past year, I couldn't help but notice that Jessica Chastain is a look-alike for her costar Bryce Dallas Howard. What do you think?
