nixon-0608.gifTwo bits of news today for high-def enthusiasts: Sex and the City's Cynthia Nixon has signed on to star in HDNet Films' One Last Thing..., about a mother coping with her son's terminal illness. HDNet is the outfit behind Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room; their mission is to produce high-def features and documentaries for theatrical release. We wish Ms. Nixon luck, because, apparently, for some stars, HD isn't the most flattering medium. (via boing boing and cinema minima) has a side-by side comparison chart of Stars Who Look Better in HD, and Stars Who Look Worse. Scarlett Johansen "has the skin of a porcelain doll and looks incredible when seen in high-def; Renee Zellweger, meanwhile, is "cute, but her cheeks look like she's had a Roseacea problem; very visible in high-def."
