Unlucky 13: Danny Ocean Style

Ocean's 11 Leading Lady: Julia Roberts
Ocean's 12 Leading Lady: Catherine Zeta-Jones
But the quality is sliding fast (as did the entertainment value of the 2nd sequel)

According to the variety article Darren Keeny posted. Ellen Barkin will play the lead lady in Ocean's 13.

I said to myself: I know the name, but who in the world is she...I know her best from Drop Dead Gorgeous, in fact that's the only thing I think I've seen Barkin in (but you can look at Ellen Barkin's page to refresh your own memory and see if you know her from anything else).

Ellen Barkin's character is supposed to be involved with Matt Damon's character in the movie. Maybe Carl Reiner will get to have a girl in Ocean's 18 with one of the Golden Girls? I hope Matt Damon gets a nomination for the Good Shepherd in 2006 before this comes out in 2007.

Also Steven Soderbergh is still supposed to direct the returning stars (George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Andy Garcia, Don Cheadle, Bernie Mac, Casey Affleck, Scott Caan, Eddie Jemison, Shaobo Qin, Carl Reiner and Elliott Gould).

If you clicked on the imdb link for Ellen above you probably though: "Yikes what a horrible picture." So I found a better one for you...this picture is off Ellen Barkin was selected as #118 for an Entertainment Tuesday selection over a year ago.

Ditto that Sheri! I thought "jew of the day" website was pretty funny myself. Oceans 12 was so lame that Oceans 13 isn't worth noting, especially since I only remember the lead actress as the girl who gets a beer can melted to her protestic arm in the movie "Drop Dead Gorgeous."

You guys should try to seek out Sea of Love which was Ellen's 'breakout' film opposite Al Pacino, at the time she was supposed to be the next big thing and she was pretty good in that picture. I've never been a big fan of hers to be honest, and Ocean's 13 sounds like the most pointless sequel ever, more pointless than Ocean's 12.

Drop Dead Gorgeous is one of my favorite movies ever. I love it. I will act it out for you the next time I see you if you would like...I will do all the voices as well as the tap numbers.
