Megan Fox Talks ‘Jonah Hex,’ Reveals She’s Playing a Prostitute

For obvious reasons, people are excited about the upcoming film adaptation of “Jonah Hex.” And for even more obvious reasons, men are excited to see Megan Fox’s performance in the film.

Now, the stunner is finally talking about her deadly, beautiful and mysterious femme fatale.

“That movie is gonna be amazing,” explained the “Transformers” star. “It’s a post-civil war, apocalyptic type Western. The director Jimmy [Hayward] is a lunatic, and he might be a genius. From some of the things I’ve seen him shoot, it’s a badass movie.”

One of the big questions that have emerged since Fox’s on-set photos have emerged is a simple one: What character is she playing? And the answer is that it’s someone even the most die-hard fan of the comic series probably won’t remember.

“They’ve changed her name a couple of times — it’s Leila now,” Fox explained. “She is a prostitute. She’s a good ol’ working girl, and she’s a love-interest to Jonah… of sorts. I mean, it’s by no means a classic type of relationship.”

“She wasn’t really featured in the comics,” Fox said of her character. “Her name was initially Liala, and now they changed it — or it was Layla, and now they changed it to Leila. … All the women in the movie are prostitutes. … [I’m] sort of a tough, no-nonsense prostitute. Like, she’ll shoot you in the head if she has to. And she does!”

Asked if she means that literally, Fox revealed that she definitely gets to wield a handgun in the flick. “Not in the head,” she grinned. “[But I get to shoot someone] somewhere.”

Co-starring Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Will Arnett, “Jonah Hex” hits theaters everywhere August 6, 2010.

Megan Fox as Buffy?

Producer talks with IGN about the casting rumor.

Two weeks after she slammed Wonder Woman and reportedly passed on playing Lara Croft comes a rumor about another genre film that Transformers starlet Megan Fox is reportedly under consideration to star in.

Cinefools claims to have heard from an industry source that Fox is being eyed to play the title role of Buffy Summers in the recently announced big-screen relaunch of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The new movie will not involve Joss Whedon or be tied in anyway to either the 1992 film or the TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar that followed.

We recommended Fox, along with several other young hotties, to play the vampire slayer in our recent Buffy Casting Couch column.

IGN contacted Buffy producer Roy Lee about the rumor, who said, “The rumors of Megan Fox being involved with Buffy are just rumors. As with any film project with a female lead under the age of 30, Megan is the actress that most studios want so it is no surprise her name is mentioned. While I think she would be great for our project, we are still in the early stages of developing the script.”

Megan Fox Down to Legalize Marijuana

Maine is leading the way when it comes to reforming cannabis laws. So would our tolerance attract those liberal Hollywood-types?

It Girl Megan Fox, star of the action film Transformers is down for the cause, as Perez Hilton reminded us:

Fox told GQ:

“I can’t tell you how much bullsh*t I’ve been through because I will openly say that I smoke weed…People look at it like it’s this crazy, hippy, fucked up thing to do. And it’s not. I hope they legalize it.”

Do you agree with the star’s take on marijuana?

Megan Fox’s Male Co-Star Wished She Put More Clothes On

Michael Papajohn is the envy of all his friends having worked alongside screen stunner Megan Fox in both the “Transformers” flicks, but it seems the experience of playing her father also had quite the tortuous side.

“I can honestly tell you she’s beautiful, but my buddies are still calling me and emailing me going, ‘Hey, how hot is she?’ and the verdict is I stayed in character the whole time,” Papajohn told Tarts last week at the Palm Pre launch event at Hollywood’s Raleigh Studios. “So I just looked at her from a father’s point of view and I just kept saying in my mind, ‘Oh Megan, I wish you’d put more clothes on’. But I did text my buddies back and said ‘good genes, what can I say?’” Continue reading Megan Fox’s Male Co-Star Wished She Put More Clothes On

‘Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen’ Star Megan Fox Dazzles In Seoul

Like the giant robots surrounding her, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” star Megan Fox is eye candy.

She proved she could kick ass in the first “Transformers” and fans are certainly expecting a repeat performance when “Fallen” opens on June 24.
