See Her Tonight
Christina Ricci on The Late Late Show
(12:30 AM EST, CBS)
When in doubt, your See Her Tonight column can always depend on Craig Ferguson to have a hot gal on Friday night. We’re not sure why that is, but Christina Ricci is just part of a Fergy tradition that’s also brought us Brie Larson, Jes Macallan, Angie Harmon, and Taylor Schilling. And we won’t pretend that Christina Ricci hasn’t been part of the proud “See Her Tonight” tradition. The former film star is no stranger to the small screen, after making guest appearances on lots of shows and having her own short-lived series with Pan Am.
Remember that one? Like Mad Men, but in the air? Sexy old stewardess outfits? Yeah. We didn’t watch it, either, because we were holding out for a lesbian storyline. Let that be a lesson to us all.
Anyway, Christina’s busy making the round to promote her big Lifetime movie Lizzie Borden Took An Axe. We’re pretty sure that they just recently changed that title from the more generic Lizzie Borden. That’ll remind people of what’s going on in the movie. Besides, there’s nothing subtle about Lifetime. It was just last weekend that we got all excited over Heather Graham in their remake of the tawdry ’70s schlock movie Flowers in the Attic.
Anyway, Lizzie Borden has reminded some folks that Christina Ricci is a sex symbol. We’ve never forgotten that, though, and COED is always happy to help get the word out. Hey, ever hear the rumor that Lizzie Borden got naked before (allegedly) killing her parents with an axe? Here’s hoping the movie jumps on that theory…
