Elizabeth Banks compelled by Man on a Ledge role


18 January 2012

Elizabeth Banks has starred in the likes of the Spider-Man trilogy, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Role Models, Zack and Miri Make a Porno and The Next Three Days has said that she felt "compelled" to star in the new thriller Man on a Ledge.

Banks plays a psychologist in charge of talking Sam Worthington's suicidal accused bank robber down from a ledge, a role that the gorgeous actress found fascinating.

The Scrubs alum tells The Washington Post "I'm very compelled by justice and injustice, I'm not afraid of sharks or heights or dying on airplanes. I am afraid of being wrongly convicted for a crime I did not commit. I literally don't trust our legal system."

Banks who returns to cinemas as Effie Trinket in the hotly anticipated The Hunger Games also reveals that she's happy with the way Man on a Ledge turned out adding "It's a great Saturday night date movie where if you bring your girlfriend or wife, they are cool with it, they won't want their money back, because guys are going to see it."

Man on a Ledge is the first of three films that Banks will be seen in this year, the next being the aforementioned The Hunger Games with rising star Jennifer Lawrence on March 23 and What to Expect When You're Expecting with Cameron Diaz on May 18.
