Scarlett Johansson fills in for Al Roker on the ‘Today Show’, is pretty adorable

Here are some pics from yesterday’s photocall for the newest Broadway revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which will star Scarlett Johansson as Maggie the Cat. Benjamin Walker will be Brick, I’m assuming, and Debra Monk and Ciaran Hinds round out the cast. I LOVE Ciaran Hinds. I would hit it. He’s one of my Forever Dongs. And yes, I will now refer to him as Big Daddy. Mm. Anyway, this production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof goes into previews mid-December, and it opens on January 17th. This will be ScarJo’s first Broadway show since her Tony Award-winning turn in A View From the Bridge in 2010. Would you like to see ScarJo as Maggie the Cat? Call me crazy, but I won’t dismiss her out of hand. I think she might be able to pull it off. Maybe. We’ll see. It depends on the accent work.

For the photocall, ScarJo is wearing “a Band of Outsiders black blazer, a Piamita striped tank and silk pants, Giuseppe Zanotti shoes, and a Dana Rebecca necklace + ring.” (IDs courtesy of JustJared.) In case you’re getting any ideas about ScarJo maybe finding love with that big tree known as Benjamin Walker… he’s married to Meryl Streep’s daughter, Mamie Gummer. So it’s a no go. Thankfully, ScarJo will have her hands full with her new French boyfriend, Romain Dauriac. The new relationship was widely reported (and widely disbelieved) last week, but there’s photo evidence now – go here to see. Romain looks a lot better in those pics.

If you want to see something cute, here’s video of ScarJo “filling in” for Al Roker yesterday during the Today Show. She’s actually not a bad weather girl!

    Don’t care about her but considering special trip to NYC for Ciaran. Did it for Alan Rickman last year.
    Loved Ciaran since Persuasion in the 90s. Hail Caesar!

    What’s cat on a hot tin roof about? I’m not really a musical or movie going person, but if I’m not mistaken, isn’t her singing horrid?

  3. Cliff says:

    Hot damn she’s beautiful…
    I also very much like her eyebrows. :o )

  4. Cruisegirl says:

    I really like this hair color on her. Very Pretty.

  5. Tess says:

    So so much prettier than Blake…

    • Jegede says:

      Reverse for me.
      I find Blake more striking and also more personable.

      Then again I think Charlize Theron (another Ryan ex) blows them both out of the water.

      And Ryan Reynolds is much better looking than Sean Penn, Romain Dauraic or the Italian bodygaurd.

      And Jar…Oh wait. This is a Brangelina-10-years-of-comparison-shouldawouldacoulda-six degree-of-separation-triangle-for eternity-conversation. Never mind!

    “I LOVE Ciaran Hinds. I would hit it.”
    Many times! Amen

  7. Velouria says:

    The best she’s looked in a LONG time!

  8. Toot says:

    Scarlett looks really good. I like her.

    • mollination says:

      Yeah. Sometimes plastic surgery is for the worse, but I think with her its for the better. And I don’t buy into the snarky opinion that it in any way detracts legitimacy from someone’s beauty if they altered some of it themselves. If that were the case, makeup, hair color, hair cuts, clothing, diets, and all the other crazy things we do for beauty should be held to the same.

  9. Lisa says:

    Well that was pretty endearing. Nice job!

  10. epiphany says:

    Weathergirl would be commensurate with her skill set and level of talent.
    Meryl Streep she ain”t!

    • True Dat.... says:

      Its common knowledge in downtown NY that her ‘Tony’ was not so much awarded as bought and paid for.

    • mollination says:

      Really? I think she’s quite talented. Beauty goes a long way in landing roles, sure, but I don’t think she’d have gotten the caliber of work she’s gotten if she didn’t bring something to the table. Having just seen Blue Valentine, I’ll say I think Michelle Williams is probably better than her as far as her contemporaries go, but I think she’s much more talented than most of the actresses vying for similiar roles.

  11. jane says:

    shes just so hot i mean she isn’t the most BEAUTIFUL woman in the world but something about her just screams sex appeal

  12. natalina says:

    i cant stand her. she’d be such a biased reporter

  13. Madriani's Girl says:

    I don’t care for her in the slightest. She should lay off the cigs and invest in some Brite Smile. While she’s at it she might want to purchase a personality.

  14. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    Oh boy. This is going to be bad. Maybe not as bad as Pia Zadora as Anne Frank but almost.
