Yes, I'm going back to the "Mean Girls" well for the second consecutive week, but that 2004 movie isn't the reason I'm spotlighting Amanda Seyfried this week. No, it's the "Red Riding Hood" trailer, which debuted recently on the Quicktime Trailers site. In fact, let's give it a watch.
Nice right? No, not the movie. That looks, well, mediocre with potential. But I'll see it anyway because Seyfried looks amazing. She's come a long way since "Mean Girls", where she probably ranked sixth in the pecking order among females in that movie (behind Lindsay Lohan, Rachel McAdams, Lacey Chabert, Lizzy Caplan and Tina Fey.
From 2004 to 2006, Seyfried had a recurring role on "Veronica Mars". Sure her character, Lilly Kane, started the series dead, but she appeared 11 times in flashbacks, and held her own with Kristen Bell. I have to admit that I never saw her breakout role, 2008's "Mamma Mia!" and I don't watch "Big Love", but I adored Seyfried in "Jennifer's Body." Even with the presence of Megan Fox's body, Seyfried was the most watchable thing in that movie. I've also got both "Dear John" and "Letters to Juliet" in my Netflix queue, solely because of Seyfried.
