Julianne Hough has a ticket to Paradise, and she’s spending her time there sinning with Russell Brand. Well, in her new trailer, at least.
Though we’ve seen the former Dancing With the Stars pro show off her acting chops before — in Burlesque, Footloose, Rock of Ages, and most recently, Safe Haven — her latest film is a step outside of the box. In the Diablo Cody-penned (and directed) movie, Paradise, Jules plays Lamb, a young Christian girl who runs away to Sin City after surviving a tragic plane accident. There, she meets William (Russell Brand) and Loray (Octavia Spencer) and proceeds to “experience worldly pleasures for the first time.”
What does that entail? Well, she has a “napkin of sin” that is basically a crazy bucket list. Among the scribbles are getting a tattoo, burning a flag, smoking something illegal, going commando, cutting her hair, marrying outside her race, and going to a porn star, among others.In the trailer, Julianne looks young, but is still recognizable — though the same can’t be said for her on-screen dad, Parks and Rec’s Nick Offerman, who is almost completely hairless. Check out the trailer below to see what else Jules has in store in Paradise, and check it out on DirecTV starting August 8 and in theaters October 18!
