Jessica Biel Talks TOTAL RECALL, NAILED, HITCHCOCK, Favorite Movies and More

     July 21, 2012


Last weekend at Comic-Con, I got to sit down with Jessica Biel for an extended video interview.  While she was in San Diego to promote director Len Wiseman‘s Total Recall (she plays Melina), during our wide ranging conversation we talked about her favorite movies, what it was like to make Total Recall, will David O. Russell‘s Nailed every get released, The A-Team‘s disappointing box office, director Sacha Gervasi‘s Hitchcock (she plays Vera Miles), what she collects, and a lot more.  Hit the jump to watch.
