“Well… I hope you’ll all be happy hanging out with a disgusting demon.”

Back in 2000 the gorgeous blonde Amy Adams appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Tara’s cousin Beth in the episode titled Family (5.06). It may not be her most lovable or even memorable role ever but I think it’s pretty damn cool that she got to be a part of this amazing show, especially so early in her career.

According to Variety, Amy Adams will star in the indie drama Daughter of the Queen of Sheba for producers Susan Cartsonis and Matt Williams (What Women Want)!
The script, written by Karen Croner based on the bio of NPR correspondent Jacki Lyden, centers on how a woman uses her mother’s madness and delusions to empower herself.
Lyden was NPR’s first correspondent on the air in the aftermath of 9/11 and went to Afghanistan soon after the Taliban fell. She’s working on a book about the secret lives of a small group of Iraqi friends and reported on the slaying of her translator by an American soldier.
Miramax’s Doubt, John Patrick Shanley’s adaptation of his Broadway play starring Philip Seymour Hoffman and Meryl Streep, has been drafted to serve as the opening-night film of AFI Fest 2008, screening Thursday at ArcLight Hollywood’s Cinerama Dome. It replaces The Soloist, which was pulled when its release was postponed until March 13.
The festival will screen an unfinished version of Doubt, which opens theatrically Dec. 12.
“The movie is still being finished, but we were so excited to show Doubt and help our friends at AFI Fest and the American Film Institute at the same time. We couldn’t possibly pass up the opportunity,” Miramax president Daniel Battsek said.
The Motion Picture Club has named Amy Adams and Richard Jenkins as its stars of the year.
Ed Harris will be honored as director of the year for his New Line/Warner Bros. western Appaloosa at the group’s 68th annual Installation and Awards Luncheon.
The ceremony, which will also fete Stars of Tomorrow Rosemarie DeWitt (Rachel Getting Married) and Luke Goss (Hellboy II), takes place Nov. 6 at New York’s Marriott Marquis.
