Cameron Diaz Goes From Charlie's Angel to One Bad Teacher

December 10, 2009

Cameron Diaz

It's hard to believe that fifteen years have passed since Cameron Diaz first jumped onto the big screen as Tina Carlyle, the premiere singer at the Coco Bongo in 1994's The Mask. Since then she's kicked asses in Charlie's Angels, picked pockets in Gangs of New York, and survived Vegas with Ashton Kutcher (ugh). But in her next role she'll just simply have to rely on her fine, um, assets as Variety reports Diaz will be starring in Bad Teacher, a raunchy comedy about a a foulmouthed, gold-digging middle-school teacher who, after getting dumped by her boyfriend, competes with a colleague for the affections of the school's model teacher.

Sounds like a great opportunity for Diaz to return to the obscene comedy she hasn't displayed since There's Something About Mary. The real question is who will play the competing colleague vying for the affection of this oh-so-desirable teacher. The script was written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (of "The Office", Ghostbusters 3). I just hope director Jake Kasdan (Orange County, Walk Hard) can redeem those two after the disappointment that was Year One. Either way, 2010 is going to be a busy year for Diaz who, along with Bad Teacher shooting in the spring, has two big summer movies: Shrek Forever After and Knight & Day.

great duo writing the script so thats always good. Diaz was great in The Mask, and I loved in her in Gangs of New York, she needs a role like this, so I'm with Branden.

She was very good in There's Something About Mary and The Mask. This will probably be a good comeback role for her.
