Giving Credit Where It's Due

Excerpted from AOL Movie News:

BEIJING (July 7) - A Chinese actress who played Hollywood movie star Zhang Ziyi 's naked body double in "The Banquet" wants her name in the movie's credits, state media reported on Friday.

"The Banquet," a Feng Xiaogang-directed film set for release in China in the autumn, stars "Memoirs of a Geisha" actress Zhang Ziyi and features several body doubles to play her in nude and fight scenes, the Nanfang Daily newspaper said. Shao Xiaoshan said she was paid 20,000 yuan ($2,500) for shooting several nude scenes in comments carried by the paper.

There may be a lawsuit. Who says jury duty sucks?

Who do you think will "get off"? Sorry, bad legal humor ... it's Friday afternoon and sunny outside. Sigh.
