Beam her up. Alice Eve is headed for the starship Enterprise.
The “She’s Out of My League” star has apparently beat out Hayley Atwell (Captain America) for a part in J.J. Abrams’ sequel to the long-running space opera.
Airlock Alpha has the story:
“It’s not clear exactly what role Eve will play in the film, which goes before cameras in January, but she brings a pretty solid acting resume with her to the table.
The British model and actress is probably best known for her role as Sophia in the HBO series “Entourage” in a four-episode span earlier this year. However, she also appeared in the 2010 romantic comedy “She’s Out of My League,” which starred Jay Baruchel, T.J. Miller and Mike Vogel as well as “Sex and the City 2.”
However, she is picking up more high-profile projects that have not come out yet. She wrapped the role of Emily in the John Cusack-starring film “The Raven,” based on the life of Edgar Allen Poe. Eve also played a younger version of Agent Oh in “Men In Black III,” both of which are scheduled to be released next year.”
