AMERICAN HUSTLE TV Spot: Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, and ’70s Haircuts [VIDEO]
The new television spot for American Hustle has finally come to American living rooms–and we really like the idea of people at home being baffled by Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence as they’ve never been seen before. By which we mean Christian Bale, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence in really bad ’70s haircuts. Christian’s comb over alone will probably become as legendary as any monologue from American Psycho.
It’s also fun to see Jeremy Renner dolled up in a polyester outfit that makes him look like a Christian evangelist preacher off a late-night UHF station. They’re both major players in acclaimed director David O. Russell’s latest movie, which is kind of like the Boogie Nights of government corruption in New Jersey. Yes, this movie is very Jersey–with Jennifer Lawrence getting hardcore housewife. She looks set to challenge Michelle Pfeiffer from Married to the Mob.
Actually, we think those gangsters from Married to the Mob were from Long Island, but Hollywood doesn’t make a distinction between that and New Jersey. The important thing is that Jennifer Lawrence is going to make ringlet fetishists very happy in American Hustle–although you can enjoy her more conventional sex appeal right here. We do not judge, however, and you might prefer Jennifer as a New Jersey Goddess in this TV spot. Film geeks like us knew it was coming, but regular human beings will be baffled. Wouldn’t surprise us if those ringlets got her an Academy Award nomination, though. Judge for yourself…
