Is Elizabeth Banks really capable of playing an evil stepmother? Hey, why not, if I can buy Britney Spears as a wannabe pop singer on the road to discovery in “Crossroads”, I can pretty much buy anything. MTV has a clip featuring Elizabeth Banks, playing the evil stepmother in question, who hints at using a pearl necklace as a weapon to strangle her stepdaughter. I personally think the stepdaughter has it coming. What’s she doing, snooping around her hot stepmom’s fabricated past? The gall!
