Bryce Dallas Howard: Cast in the "The Help"

Bryce Dallas Howard.

I'm not sure how you and I stack up.

It looks like you are going to co-star in the adaptation of what could be a successful film based off the best selling novel The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

Originally I thought Chris Columbus would direct this film, but looks like Columbus is producing with the less note-worthy Tate Taylor directing. The other two lead females in addition to Howard will be Oscar nominee Viola Davis (Doubt) and Emma Stone.

But to me the big name of the bunch is Howard.

I feel like this is a big year for Howard and by year end or at least by the time The Help comes out, I'll have a better idea of where we stand...Howard is in Eastwood's unique project Hereafter, a Jonathan Levine comedy, and the next Twilight film.

I pictured Howard above from M. Night Shymalan's The Village, because that's how I picture and remember her, second to her M. Night Shymalan performance in The Lady in the Water. And perhaps that detail alone outlines the inner-conflict.

Will Howard be a film female who deserves those "important roles" are will she hang around in the background or disappear all together...Howard, Howard, Howard...I'm just not sure what I think of you yet.
