I watched Drag Race a few days late, and got the pleasant surprise of Alessandra Torresani as a judge. Caprica was perhaps the best show on TV (before it got cancelled) and Torresani was one of the main reasons for that. Her role was the most difficult in the show and she played it well.
And she does have a film coming out soon. PLAYBACK will be released sometime this year. It is about a group of high school students who dig into their town’s past and unlock an evil that possesses its victims through video playback and using them for malevolent purposes.
Now that sounds a bit like an X-files episode (the one where a town is being manipulated with subliminal commands from cable TV), but it’s probably worth seeing because Torresani is in it, even if she is probably playing a high school student (she is 23).
Now I know Heather Morris is up for lead in the new Buffy film, but wouldn’t Alessandra Torresani be a decent choice? She’s about Morris’ age, and so can’t be faulted for being too young. And she probably fights better than Morris. Morris could play some Willow-equivalent.
