I am beyond excited for the film adaptation of Mamma Mia! to be released on July 18. One , it combines all the things I love: Meryl Streep, ABBA, musicals, movies, and Colin Firth.
But I also think this movie is going to be Amanda Seyfried’s breakthrough film role.
Some of you might remember her as Karen, the stupid blonde in Mean Girls. It is one of the best portrayals of the stereotypical dumb blonde character.
Seyfried has also appeared on several television shows, most notably as Lilly Kane on Veronica Mars and Sarah Hendrickson on Big Love.
This final video is of Seyfried performing “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme (A Man After Midnight)” for Mamma Mia!
This movie, along with her role in Jennifer’s Body (written by Diablo Cody), almost guarantee that Amanda Seyfried will have a breakthrough year.
