Re: The Official JANUARY JONES/Emma Frost Thread - Part 1
Yeah, I'm on that side that says that Jones definitely isn't a great actress, but she CAN do well given the right role and performance that's ASKED of her.
I've seen the first four seasons of Mad Men and she has some pretty bad acting moments in it but she also has some great scene stealing moments on the show as well. I think she plays the mousy, ice-queen role the best because she seems to possess that nature anyway.
I'm also on that side that understands how some people would say that she's the worst actress working today. While I'm fine with how they approached the character in this movie, the way they wrote her in the movie and how they chose to compliment Jones' acting style with Frost's personality, I was fine with that as well.
As I've said before, they can turn this around for the character and for Jones' credibility as well, as long as they're willing to do more with her and give her a moment to shine emotionally.
