Jessica Chastain Takes Another Risk in Her Meteoric Rise From Obscurity

From “Take Shelter” to “The Debt,” Jessica Chastain is an actress who feeds off risks.

But in a still relatively young career that has seen her push the boundaries while working with demanding auteurs like Terrence Malick and Kathryn Bigelow, the Oscar-nominee is about to embark on her biggest challenge yet — taking on the iconic role of Catherine Sloper in a revival of “The Heiress.”

The lonely spinster at the heart of the tragedy has been a favorite of actresses over the years, with the likes of Olivia de Havilland, Cherry Jones and Jane Alexander putting their indelible mark on the character. Chastain insists that despite making her Broadway debut in a play associated with such formidable women, she is not intimidated. Continue reading

‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Getting Early Oscar Buzz

The trailer for Katherine Bigelow’s latest effort, “Zero Dark Thirty,” is generating Oscar buzz.

The highly anticipated drama stars Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”) and Jessica Chastain (“The Tree of Life”). It focuses on the U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six and their efforts leading up to the Osama Bin Laden’s killing. The film spans ten years-starting with the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Since its brief teaser premiered on Monday, some are confident that the film will compete in the Oscar race early next year.

“Zero Dark Thirty” is one of the last big Oscar contenders to receive a trailer, but judging from the new teaser, it was worth the wait,” wrote Christopher Rosen of the Huffington Post.

“The first trailer for ‘Zero Dark Thirty,’ Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal’s long-anticipated docudrama about the hunt for Osama bin Laden, proved with today’s release that the controversial film deserves its Oscar buzz,” wrote Drusilla Moorehouse of Pop to It.

The film was set to begin filming just days before the al-Qaeda leader’s death on May 2, 2011. This forced Bigelow, along with screenwriter Mark Boal (who she previously collaborated with for “The Hurt Locker”) to quickly develop a revised script.

It marks Bigelow’s first film since winning the Best Director Oscar in 2010 for “The Hurt Locker.” She is the first woman to win in the directing category. Boal walked away with the award for Best screenplay that year.
