Are You Excited to See Blake Lively Getting Bigger Roles?

Blake Lively's February cover of Esquire is out, coinciding perfectly with the news that she won the female lead opposite Ryan Reynolds in The Green Lantern. There was a rather public casting process for the coveted role, with established actresses like Jennifer Garner, Diane Kruger, and Keri Russell allegedly also in the running.

Blake Lively became a household name due to her small screen work in Gossip Girl, though she's starting to cross over into major film territory with her latest role and appearances in The Town and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. It might be hard to stop seeing Blake as Serena van der Woodsen — even Blake herself says, "I can snap into Serena very easily . . . the way I dress as Serena is pretty much the way I dress as me. I'm living in New York City, shooting in New York City. I'm in a comfort zone." So tell us what you think — are you excited to see Blake Lively getting bigger roles?

I watch gossip girl but im not a huge fan of blake lively, sure shes pretty but, to tell you the truth there is a whole generation of actresses im not really a huge fan of, why you ask? well because i dont think they have the same degree of talent as the last generation of actresses, I think they get by on their "assests" so to speak, such as the fact that in gossip girl even when blake lively doesnt have her boobs out (ala she is wearing a high neck sweater) she still has her boobs out (theres a hole in it) I just think that too many actresses these days are getting to be famous based on the fact that they look the part, not that they can actually act it very well. I mean they could all be type cast, because a lot of them only know how to act one way.

Yes. I like her personality and she seems to be a hard working girl, so I hope she does well.

I actually like her, but she can't act and is kind of boring/monotone. I saw the "the private lives of Pippa Lee" just because she was in it when I came across it, she was barely in it and just mumbled her way through.

Oh what a surprise, she isn't wearing a plunging neckline type of shirt. I cant stand her voice, it makes me want to choke her.

I wish Leighton will have her PR, agent and connections. Blake is a lovely girl...but her speech and all the time she only laugh is annoying

Cool cover ! She was great in "the private lives of Pippa Lee",although she wasnt exactly the leading lady -since she was playing the part of Robin Wright's character when she was younger.

She needs a speech coach. her speaking annoys the crap out of me. i always fast forward her scenes on GG.. How long does it take to get out a sentence?

i want to be excited about it but i'm just not. i think that it's great for her career but i feel like she's not necessarily strong enough to be a lead actress in a movie...especially across from RR. we'll have to see how she does though - i'm sure that the casting folks saw soething in her.

Hope so. I kind of dig this woman. Seems like she is doing the right things and is not acting like Lohan or other sewage waste. I'd be interested in seeing her become successful and get better parts.
