Goth Attorneys ♥ Brooke Shields
Brooke Shields is haunting me. Ms. Shields currently is playing the role of Morticia in the Addams Family Musical on Broadway. Ms. Sheilds looks great. It is about time she darkened up her sunny image. Though I’m not typically a big fan of Broadway, I would love to see Ms. Shields in the role before the show ends its run on December 31, 2011.
And this weekend, I happened to watch much more of a movie called, “The Boy Who Cried Werewolf,” than anyone ever should. Though the film was not my cup of tea, it should be noted that Ms. Shields makes an amazing looking East European goth housekeeper in this film (as pictured above).
But who Ms. Shields is playing for an upcoming film, makes my little goth attorney heart do cartwheels. Ms. Shields is producing and staring in a Lifetime network movie about the 2005 Supreme Court eminent domain case Kelo v. New London. For those not familiar, Kelo v. New London is the case in which the Supreme Court ruled it was okay to take homes away from people and give them to private developers. The decision caused outrage and led to eminent domain law reform. It should be noted, that more than six years after the decision—the redevelopment plan has failed and the land on which the homes once stood are now a dump.
Ms. Shields will play the role of Susette Kelo, the woman who lost her little pink house when the Supreme Court ruled that eminent domain could be used to take homes for private development projects.
