Sasha Grey = UGH.
Smash Cut was horrible, so she was kind of incognito there, then her less-than-one-note portrayal of a call girl in The Girlfriend Experience really delivered on a whole new kind of promise to "suck".

I'm sure, like in the case of Ginger Lynn, there are porno actresses out there with some actual emotive skills if these directors MUST use someone from "that" industry. Why this robotic wonder is getting roles is boggling my mind. Using her is a sensationalistic money grab, while some fine actress sits around and waits for the phone to ring.

I think you missed the point as to why Sasha Grey was cast. The fact that she is a bit of a stiff actress was the reason why her role as a high end prostitute worked. Her character was an emotionally numb young girl who was to personify whatever her clients expected from her.

Either way, I'd rather see a young woman make it as a legitimate actress than having her ass reemed by some douchebag 3 times a week.

Her lack of acting chops made her character all the more believable.

I "get" that. It didn't work for me. I'd rather have a REAL actress act stiff, and have the tools to actually *cough* ACT when needed. It's like saying casting a drunk person is better than having an actor play a drunk. Looks good on paper, but this aint paper...
