Do You Think Katie Holmes Should Do Comedy or Drama?

Apparently, Katie Holmes is in talks to star alongside Woody Harrelson and Jason Lee in a "comedic fantasy adventure" titled The Other Side. And soon we'll be able to see her play a goofy, quirky gal in the female-helmed heist comedy Mad Money (check out the preview here).

I'm a little surprised to see Katie (oops, pardon me, Tom, Kate) getting comedic roles, but then again, maybe she's more cut out for comedy than she was for drama. Her performance in Batman Begins was less than exciting, though I loved her in Pieces of April.

What do you think? Do you like it better when Katie is a goofball, or when she is totally Dawson's Creek serious?

She was da bomb in The Gift,Go & Saturday Night Live. Love her opposite Tobey Maguire in Ice Storm,Robert Downey Singing Detective and particularly Christian Bale in Batman Begins. I have yet to see Thank you for Smoking and Pieces of April.

Please! What does Katie's great talent have to do with her personal life? This girl has it all and those that lash at her will only backfire bigtime. Since we jugde actresses craft with their lives then Dunst is a bad actress for advocating drug use, another bad actress Paltrow for saying Americans are not as cultured as Europeans or Katie's replacement Gyllenhaal for saying America deserves 9/11, she insults Katie other actresses and blockbuster films,she's a monster to fans and the paparazzis. ROTFLM6O!!!!!! Katie's movies are flops? if you get behind the movie news many actors and actresses are box office poison lately especially A listers and Oscar winners. Get your facts straight!!!!!

The only time she ever done a decent performance was in Pieces of April. Like soemone mentioned before, she has a terrible habit of talking with one side of her mouth, her lips are always lopsided. I feel like she makes her characters out too sweet, she always ends up playing the type of girl who is just so naive and sweet you feel like kicking the TV, even when the character in itself may not have been meant to seem like that. She always over martyrizes her characters and she never seems comfortable with comedy.

I'll always have a warm feeling for her as Joey Potter but, i can't see her in a comedy (maybe it will change after Mad Money)

Let's face it: she's just not that good of an actress. She's been good in selected things: Pieces of April (her biggest departure, IMO) and GO but has failed to pick decent projects lately (thank you-Tom Cruise).

im sad that you didn't put "both" as an option! i think she rocks she's cute and comedic at times but she also has those sad eyes that do well in dramas i loved pieces of april too!

I really really didn't like her in Batman Begins. She needs to stick to upbeat, quirky roles!

The girl can't act.. maybe she should just continue being programmed by Tom and leave the acting world behind.

I liked her in Pieces of April, Wonderboys and Go. She was pretty decent in Thank You for Smoking and The Gift. She's not a leading lady, though. I'm not sure she should do comedy (Mad Money looks like ass with or without her). I don't know. She confuses me.

I honestly don't know what to think of her anymore so I voted neither.

She is so over-rated.

"Pieces of April" was really good, so I guess there is hope for her. I would be interested in seeing her in a comedy, and she was okay in "Thank You For Smoking." I don't think Tom Cruise has much to do with it, because she had started making bigger movies and getting bigger offers before she married him.

Neither. I think she should continue playing robot wife.

Neither. She was good in "Pieces of April" but I think that was a fluke. I've never liked her in anything else.
