I don't know, there's just something about Christina Ricci.
I've loved her ever since she showed me the naughty little valley down her backside in The Ice Storm. She's like the girl you forget during school but get drunk and curious with that night.
And now she's playing Trixie in the upcoming Speed Racer. And what kind of casting coup is that? Seriously, what would you have to do to her in makeup? She already has freakishly big eyes spread a tad too far apart. A head that's slightly too big for her body. And a straw-like neck. Everything you need to look exactly like a Japanese cartoon character. And even after all of that, I still love the woman.
I have no idea how Speed Racer will turn out, but while all those state-of-the-art special effects are flashing before me, mine eyes will be affixed to Trixie and that pink little tank top of hers.
