The Mentalist star and her husband Jordan Alan became first-time parents to Knox Addison Alan on 10 January (13) and they have shared a photo of the newborn with People.com.
The new mum announced her pregnancy news in August (12), but decided to keep the sex of her child a secret.
Righetti wed producer/director Alan in 2006.
The Mentalist’s Amanda Righetti is hopping on the Marvel bandwagon. Reportedly, she’ll have a small but notable role in the heavily anticipated film The Avengers. At this time, Righetti could be accepting one of two roles: the first, and more likely, is that of SHIELD Agent Sharon Carter (whose aunt, Peggy Carter, will be portrayed by Hayley Atwell in Captain America: The First Avenger). The other role would be of superhero Ms. Marvel (secret identity: Carol Danvers).
Amanda Righetti may not be a household name, but since the development of her character on The Mentalist, the actress has earned a few more film roles. 2011 has so far seen her in The Chateaux Meroux and Cats Dancing on Jupiter. Currently in development is a thriller called Shadow in which Righetti will star.
As just about everyone will be seeing The Avengers, one can surmise that her appearance there—even in a smaller role—will afford her an even greater amount of recognition.
The Avengers hist theaters May 4, 2012 and will (most likely) make some sort of appearance at this year's San Diego Comic-Con.
Crystal Lake. Dumb kids in the woods. Sex drugs booze. A hulking maniac in a hockey mask wielding a machete. Yeah that about sums it up.
Are you kidding? The new Jason Derek Mears probably fares best among the actors because he doesn’t have a single word of dialogue. Everyone else unfortunate enough to stumble in front of the camera – Jared Padalecki Amanda Righetti Danielle Panabaker Travis Van Winkle – is basically fodder for the slaughter. Some of them get naked. Most of them get dead. Some die more gorily than others. No one dies quickly enough. Having previously (and woefully) directed the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre helmer Marcus Nispel does his best – and worst – to resurrect yet another popular horror franchise from the past. He also adds absolutely nothing new to the formula. Quite frankly anyone could’ve directed this film. Judging by the results anyone did. This is the 12th Friday the 13th film for those keeping score at home and with any luck it’ll be the last. Of course it won’t be. But we can always hope.
