Katherine Heigl Changes it Up in ‘One for the Money’ Poster

Katherine Heigl seems to be heading back to her roots, slowly but surely. Her film career began in the ’90s, when the actress was not yet pinpointed as a very specific type of leading lady. Before becoming one of the go-to choices for romcom star, Heigl was featured in horror-comedies, like Bug Buster and Bride of Chucky.

Her role on Grey’s Anatomy helped launch her further into the public eye. She accepted leading roles in romantic comedies like Knocked Up27 Dresses and The Ugly Truth. In 2010, she took a slight departure by adding the subject of “action” to one of her romcom starrers: Killers. In this film, Heigl unwittingly married a CIA agent with a license to kill, and then got swept up in his dangerous lifestyle. And now, in a similar vein, Heigl is starring in One for the Money, wherein she’ll play a bounty hunter with multiple love interests.

This slightly edgier type of comedy film, with the elements of crime, action and danger, might be broadening Heigl’s horizons once more. Perhaps we’ll see her in a full-fledged thriller soon? Maybe a hard scifi? A Tarantino pic? We’ll see…

One for the Money comes out January 27, and also stars Jason O’Mara, Daniel Sunjata and Debbie Reynolds.

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
