Octavia Spencer

Though she was recognizable for goofy roles in films like Dinner for Schmucks and Win a Date with Tad Hamilton, actress Octavia Spencer is quickly on the rise as a big name after her Oscar nomination as Best Supporting Actress in The Help, not to mention all the acclaim from critics and various other awards. Now Spencer has been lined up for Snow Piercer the story set in a future where, after a failed experiment to stop global warming, an Ice Age kills off all life on the planet except for the inhabitants of the Snow Piercer, a train that travels around the globe and is powered by a sacred perpetual-motion engine. More below!

Spencer joins a cast that already includes Chris Evans, John Hurt and Tilda Swinton who are part of the class system that evolves on the train before a revolution starts brewing. Heat Vision says that Spencer will play one of the passengers as well who joins the revolt in order to save her son. Combine this with Spencer's role in the next film from Diablo Cody project which will mark the Juno writer's directorial debut, and the next couple of years should be even more exciting for the actress following all this awards love for The Help.

She is great! But whenever I see Miss Spencer I think of her role in DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS, where she was a psychic who could communicate with dead animals. SNOW PIERCER sounds to be like an excellent film.

Hillarious. She makes the best out of her screen time. Remember her as the waiver person in Sam rami's first Spider-man?

True shining star of this film is director himself,also miss Spencer is good actor but this Asian Korean director blast the cinemas! They shine and don't have any claim.this year they want prove to holleywood that vein of new era of film making is in their hands.park chan wook director of oldboy and thirst with (stoker) staring great nichol Kidman ,ji Woon kim director of I saw the devil and good bad wierd with (last stand) stsring Arnold shartzeneger and bong joon ho director of Host and also The Mother with this new film snow piercer want came back the holleywood to first class that it misses in pictures.I love respect from Korean directors to our intelligence,they have dark theme in their works,showing sensation for them is very important,and they really really know the new action making.they are super mind director with really talent.
