Nicole Blake: Nina Arianda - she's one of the strongest actresses I've seen and her comedic timing is brilliant.
Arianda took on another iconic blonde part when she played Billie in the Broadway revival of Born Yesterday, which nabbed her a Tony nomination in 2011. In 2012 she won the Tony for her performance in Venus in Fur, which also showed her comedic chops, as well as her sexier side. We know she'd look great in the Hot Box costumes!
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
