Pink (real name Alecia Moore), 32, did have a cameo in Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle in 2003 and another small role in Catacombs in 2007, but this is the singer’s first leading role.
Spotted filming in New York City’s West Village Tuesday, she is set to star alongside such pros as Gwenyth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins. Her character shares a bond with Book of Mormon’s Josh Gad, who, as Neil, is another of three characters undergoing 12-step treatment for sex addiction.
“[Pink] could not be a more ideal fit for this role,” writer-director Stuart Blumberg said in a statement. “She carries with her just the right combination of heart and edginess for the part of Dede, and we’re incredibly excited to share her acting talent with audiences.”
Thank goodness she also looks great in leather!
