If you haven't seen the Coen Brothers' adaptation of Charles Portis' novel True Grit you need to get on that. Treat it as your homework. Ellen Chenowith did a great job on casting Hailee Steinfeld as Mattie Ross. She was basically a "nobody." One of those actors/actresses you don't recognize from anything. Liz just sent me this clip of Steinfeld in a K Mart commercial. She's the one wearing jeans and the blue shirt with hearts on it. All I could say was, "gross." I am not a fan of bedazzling. Glad to see her career took a turn for the better.
