I know things have been a bit Winona-heavy on here lately, but this is big news: Ms. Ryder has been cast in Darren Aronofsky’s “Black Swan”, says /Film. “Swan” stars Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis as Nina and Lily, battling ballet dancers (who at one point have “ecstasy-induced hungry aggressive angry sex,” which I’m sure will be quite the draw).
/Film says of Ryder’s role:
Ryder will play Beth, Nina’s “sorta friend” who has been the school’s running lead in all the productions, but who is nearing the end of her career. All the dancers are aiming to take her place as Odette, the Swan Queen, in the next big ballet: Swan Lake.
While that doesn’t read like a major character, it’s definitely not a “Star Trek” like cameo either. Let the comeback begin!?
