You might know Leslie Bibb as that really cute blonde girl who wouldn't allow Ricky Bobby to pray to the baby Jesus in Talladega Nights; or that really cute blonde girl who starred in the TV series Popular ... and The Skulls ... and See Spot Run. Well, throw all those out the window, because she's about to become that really cute blonde girl who played a fast-talking reporter in the film Iron Man. Yes, Bibb has signed on to star opposite Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Bridges and Terrence Howard in Jon Favreau's big-screen adaptation of the Marvel superhero. As noted above, she'll play the token reporter; doing her best to uncover the truth, while looking good at the same time.

Apart from Iron Man, Bibb will also star in The Bachelorette Party for Regency Enterprises. Based on Karen McCullah Lutz's (Legally Blonde) novel, Regency snagged the script from newbie scribe Matt Olson. I imagine this is the same novel that was optioned by 20th Century Fox back in 2005. At that time, Nicole Kidman was signed on to produce (and possibly star), while Lutz was tapped to adapt. Not sure what's happened between then and now but, regardless, Bibb will play the lead in a story about a bachelorette party gone awry (oohhh, Girls Gone Wild: The Movie?). Note that this has nothing to do with that planned direct-to-DVD Bachelor Party sequel. According to IMDb, The Bachelorette Party is scheduled to arrive in theaters in 2009 alongside another film simply titled Bachelorette.
