很久没有关注Jennifer Beals的消息了，最近在电影《艾利之书》中惊喜地发现了JB大神的身影。演一个盲人老妈，戏份不多，演得不错。最近玩Twitter，Follow不少《The L Word》中的演员们，所以第一手的信息也不会错过了。来几张JB大神的近照吧……

要拍电影版了！ Ilene Chaiken貌似已经确认，而且正在写剧本。目前还不确认是否剧集人员主要演员是否会加盟电影版，但问题不大。翻译很累，直接转帖原文好了。原文很罗嗦，介绍了一下剧集的一些演员的情况，Tina现实中蛮bisexual但嫁了个男人拥有幸福的家庭，Jennifer一直很郁闷大家认为她是bisexual。都是老生常谈啦，Fans谁不知道。
Hoping to follow in the footsteps of the biggest money-making female-driven movie ever, "Sex and the City," there’s confirmation that a big screen version of "The L Word" is in the making.
"L Word" creator Ilene Chaiken confirmed over the weekend that she is in the process of writing a movie based on the runaway hit with predominantly lesbian characters.
AfterEllen.com reporter Trish Bendix broke the story when Chaiken discussed the movie possibility online on Saturday (July 25). She said: "Movie is in scripting process."
The show lasted six seasons starting in 2004 and ended this year and focused on characters who were lesbian, bisexual and transgendered living in the West Hollywood area. Pam Grier, Jennifer Beals, Leisha Hailey and Katherine Moennig were among the cast.
Actress Laurel Holloman, playing a character who was bisexual on the show, is out as bisexual in real-life, and she is married to a man. Her character, Tina, however, became more and more a lesbian as the show went on, and rarely discussed her bisexuality.
Jenny Schecter, the show’s staunchly out bisexual character, played by Mia Kirshner, was actually killed off in the show, although it’s not clear who murdered her.
Cybill Shepherd also played a bisexual character, Phyllis, who left her longtime marriage to fall for a woman. And, there were other depictions of bisexuality in the show.
I’ve interviewed Jennifer Beals many times (and also about the show), and she’s thrilled that people think she may be bisexual after watching the show and seeing her character. (She’s been married twice.) And yes, she told me, "I think everyone has the capacity to be bisexual, or have feelings for either sex, if they’re really honest with themselves. I mean, I thought I knew all about that and was pretty hip to all that, but being involved in the show opened me up to understanding it all a bit more."
It’s not clear what characters will make it to the big screen version, but some major questions will be answered. And, "The L Word" may have not always been responsible for clearing misconceptions about bisexuality, but it certainly brought out a lot of issues concerning the subject, even more than "Sex and the City" did.

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Jennifer Beals, who made her splashy debut with the iconic 1983 movie "Flashdance," will return to the feature film world with a role in the action thriller "The Book of Eli," starring Denzel Washington.
Albert and Allen Hughes are directing the film for Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment.
The script, by Gary Whitta with a rewrite by Anthony Peckham, centers on a lone hero named Eli (Washington) who must fight his way across the wasteland of a near-future America to protect a sacred book that might hold the key to saving humanity. Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis are also in the cast.
Beals is playing Oldman’s sexual prize and Kunis’ mother, a blind woman doing anything she can to protect her child.
For the past several years, Beals has starred in the Showtime series "The L Word." The drama just entered its final season.
"Eli" reunites Beals with Washington, with whom she starred in 1995’s "Devil in a Blue Dress."

Cast members of Showtime’s hit series The L-Word are coming to town to raise money for women’s services and programs at the Mazzoni Center, Philadelphia’s leading LGBT healthcare center. Mazzoni Executive Director Nurit Shein says that in addition to medical services like PAP smears and mammograms, the new funds will support a progressive collaboration with Pacific Reproductive Services, a lesbian-owned sperm bank founded in California in 1984 to serve the reproductive needs of women planning alternative families.
Pacific has the nation’s largest selection of “willing to be known” donors, which means that at 18 the child can discover his or her biological and cultural heritage, an important option for many lesbian parents.
