Kerry Washington in "The Dead Girl."
Continuing to avoid type-casting, Kerry Washington takes a trip to the dark side as "Rosetta," a lady of the night, in the independent thriller, The Dead Girl. The film, directed by Karen Moncrieff, weaves together the stories of strangers affected by the murder of a young woman. Many "D" words have been used to describe the this moody piece: dark, disturbing, depressing, deep. But the one that is most important as it pertains to Kerry Washington's performance: Dramatic.
For those looking to see a lighter side of Washington, you won't have to wait long. Later this year, she'll play temptress "Nikki" in Chris Rock's I Think I Love My Wife, and join the sequel of Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer as blind sculptress, Alicia Masters.
