- Citazione :
If the name Erin Cummings sounds familiar, it should: The actress portrayed the sexy lesbian love interest to Van — and later Brit — on Here! TV’s “Dante’s Cove.” In addition to a recent recurring role on Fox’s “Dollhouse,” Cummings is quickly entering the royal legion of lesbians by playing opposite women like Michelle Wolff, Eliza Dushku and Lucy Lawless. The straight actress returns to lesbian territory in January’s trashy B-movie “Bitch Slap,” where she plays the ringleader in the campy romp that’s complete with gratuitous cleavage and loaded with sexual innuendo. As Hel, the corporate powerbroker and leader of a trio of bad girls that also features a down-and-out stripper and a drug-running killer, “Bitch Slap” is poised to go behind the reasons that make bad girls bad and turn the gratuitous depiction of women in B movies of the 1950s and ’60s on its head.
FYI: Between your work on “Dante’s Cove” and the “Xena” connection in the cast with Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor, “Bitch Slap” already has a built-in lesbian fan base. How do you feel about that?
EC: I love it. I find that any time you can have a fan base of people who are not only interested in what you’re doing but are also really excited about what you’re doing … it’s great. … Ever since we did Xena-Con last year, the lesbian community has really embraced us in a wonderful way. Especially now that I’m working with Lucy Lawless on “Spartacus,” I’ve seen the way the community embraced her. It almost feels like you’re being embraced by a community.
FYI: Who do you play on “Spartacus”?
EC: I play Spartacus’ wife. Her name is Sura and she’s Spartacus’ (Andy Whitfield) wife so she’s pretty much the heart and soul of Spartacus and the motivation behind everything that he does. That premieres Jan. 22. www.bitchslapmovie.com
“Bitch Slap” opens Jan. 8 in limited release; “Spartacus” premieres Jan. 22 on A&E Network.
