The A-Team, starring Jessica Biel

Jessica Biel, GF of Justin Timberlake, can be seen starring alongside Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton Jackson and Sharlto Copley in the action-packed feature film The A-Team, set to premiere on 30th July.

Jessica’s last onscreen performance was in the romcom, Valentine’s Day (in which Bradley Cooper also played a part), although their characters in the star-studded film had no romantic interest in each other. The same is definitely not true for The A-Team though!

The premise of the story is partly based on the former love affair between Captain Charisa Sosa (Jessica Biel) and Templeton “Face” Peck (Bradley Cooper). Although the two are ex-lovers, their love interest is a driving force of action in the film.

Jessica has repeatedly expressed a desire to get out of the action film genre but has obviously been unable to escape it. She has starred in a number of action films including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Blade: Trinity, and Stealth. Her most recent glimmer of hope to break into a new genre is with Nailed, a political satire. The long-delayed film has been in the making since 2007 and it experienced another setback last week after director David O. Russell quit his own film.

From the beginning, Jessica has struggled to break into different genres. She rose to fame by playing a wholesome preacher’s daughter on the family-drama series 7th Heaven. In an effort to separate herself from her character’s spotless image, Jessica posed semi-nude for the cover of Gear magazine in 2000—something she came to regret.

Her most recent cover shot can be seen on the August issue of Glamour where the only thing that’s nude is the colour of her clothing. In recent years, she has been named the Sexiest Woman Alive and featured on the cover of Esquire magazine, and she was among the top 10 most beautiful women in People magazine’s annual sans makeup issue.

Beautiful as she may be, Jessica has been quoted on more than one occasion saying something about how her beauty has got in the way of her being cast in dramatic roles. Charisa Sosa is undeniably a token character in the male-dominated cast of The A-Team so it is somewhat surprising Jessica took the part, considering her statements made in the past.

Hers is the classic case of brains versus beauty and she’s one star who insists she has both.
