When I saw today that Elizabeth Berkley had joined the Richard Kelly-less sequel to Donnie Darko, I figured this sealed the film's doomed fate. Casting Elizabeth Berkley in anything means you've completely given up, and are now hoping there's someone left that didn't get their fill of Berkley's boobs in Showgirls and will, for some reason, pay to see them one more time. There's a reason she signs her contracts using her nipples as quills.
But wait... what's this? It can't be. No. No way. Really?
Berkley is playing a speed freak-turned-Jesus freak
SHE'S PLAYING A REFORMED JESSIE SPANO!
Or close enough.
'Darko' sequel adds two [THR]
