Well, after much pleading from her ever loyal fans, Janet Evanovich’s beloved character Stephanie Plum hits the big screen this month in One For the Money. The Stephanie Plum books have consistently been among our most popular books here at the library, and hope her fans are pleased with the movie adaptation. If it is anything like the books, the crowd will be laughing out loud through most of the movie.
Stephanie Plum (Katherine Heigl), an unemployed lingerie buyer, convinces her bail bondsman cousin, Vinnie (Patrick Fischler), to give her a shot as a bounty hunter. Her first assignment is to track down a former cop, Joe Morelli (Jason O’Mara), on the run for murder — the same man who broke her heart years before. With the help of some friends and the best bounty hunter in the business, Ranger (Daniel Sunjata), she slowly learns what it takes to be a true bounty hunter.
Other cast members include John Leguizamo as Jimmy Alpha, Ana Reeder as Connie Rossoli, Ryan Michelle Bathe as Jackie and Sherri Shepherd as dual roles playing two hookers with hearts of gold. There are no details about Shepherd’s dual roles but one of them is confirmed to be Lula. Grandma Mazur will be played by Debbie Reynolds.
