Allison Janney has joined the cast of DreamWorks’ adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ best-selling novel “The Girl on the Train.”
She joins an ensemble that already includes Emily Blunt, Rebecca Ferguson, Haley Bennett, Jared Leto and Justin Theroux with Tate Taylor directing.
The story follows a woman (Blunt) devastated by her recent divorce who spends her commute fantasizing about a seemingly perfect married couple who live in a house that her train passes every day. Along the way, she becomes entangled in a mystery revolving around the couple.
Janney will play a police detective in the pic.
Vote for Spy which is up for the best movie comedy in the People’s Choice Awards – Vote for Spy
“Spy” is another comedy designed less as a coherent movie than one meant to let Melissa McCarthy exhibit her skillful comedy chops. The spy caper, however, is more successful than some of her past endeavors, and for the most part, the Paul Feig-directed film deals a fair amount of laughs.
McCarthy plays Susan, who despite her training is stuck at a desk at CIA headquarters, where she is constantly dismissed when not overlooked completely. Her real job is aiding someone seen as a real spy (Jude Law), but he — using his charm — must rely on Susan for information.
Inevitably, Susan does end up in the field, where her talents — and McCarthy’s — come to the fore, donning numerous amusing disguises. Nothing makes sense in the plot, but if you like watching the talented actress being funny, that’s enough.
BIGGEST Congrats to Allison for her win tonight!
