Rosemarie DeWitt has been a regular presence on both the small and big screen as an actress who plays the typical wife since she appeared in the title role of "Rachel Getting Married".
However, it seems that the beautiful actress has decided that despite being very appreciative of the consistent work she is no longer willing to be one of America's favourite movie wives and has provided a pleasant surprise to some entertainment observers and fans by rejecting recent offers of these roles.
Instead of playing the traditional wife roles she has been attracting attention from entertainment observers for playing characters who have "shimmering layers of complexity and a lot more beneath the surface" (Co-Create - August 20).
He decision to reject the traditional wife roles of these more challenging, complex, gritty characters in films such as "Digging for Fire" has enhanced her profile with film critics as she has shown an ability to create a compelling character when her character is more than just the 'traditional' wife and instead has their own journey filled with success and failures.
In taking this substantial risk of rejecting roles so that she could show her ability to play a multi-layered character in a dramatic movie such as "Digging for Fire" she has enhanced her appeal with some film observers and been a pleasant surprise to some movie viewers who seem to have not expected her to possess such an impressive dramatic acting range, proof that sometimes its a smart move to take a calculated career risk.
With the movie "Digging for Fire" she takes advantage of the director giving the actors the freedom to improvise and in the process looks to have broken free from the image of being one of America's favourite wives.
