Amy Adams wants drama roles
A 2010 bio-drama that follows boxer Micky 'Irish' Ward's unlikely road to the world light-welterweight title. His rise was shepherded by half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who turned around his life after nearly being killed by drugs and crime. Starring Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg, & Amy Adams.
Amy Adams wants to play more dramatic characters.
The Oscar-nominated actress most recently took a turn as opinionated boxer's wife Charlene in 'The Fighter', and she confesses it was great to have a more of an interesting role where she got to be expressive rather than a scared woman.
She said: "Am I looking forward to playing more dramatic characters? Yeah! I'm usually the one in the corner looking scared.
"In 'The Fighter' it was nice to have that outlet because I normally go home from work and I'm all pent up. Like in 'Doubt' where I play a nun, I would just come home and feel like, 'Aah' because my character never really got to have that moment of release."
She particularly liked playing Charlene opposite Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg because she was "very loyal".
She added: "I loved the character, Charlene. She's the kind of woman who's tough, you're going to meet a wall and then have to break it down and she's not going to give you any clues on how to do it.
"But when you get through she's actually very loyal."
