Ellen Page is bringing her awesomeness to the television. At only 22-years-old, Ms. Page has landed the job of both writer and producer for a new HBO series called Stitch’n'Bitch, reports NY Daily News. Page’s current cast-mates in Whip It! Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development) and Sean Tillman have already landed roles in the HBO show about a pair of hipster girls who move from Brooklyn to LA to pursue their art.
The young actress has already received an Oscar nomination for her performance in the 2007 film Juno, where she played a witty pregnant teen, but Page’s portrayal wasn’t a fluke. Her performance in Whip It! is completely honest and the character is much different than her Juno counterpart.
There’s no word on whether the actress will star in Stitch’n'Bitch, but with her serving as writer and producer it’s safe to say that she’ll be very present from behind the scenes. Page is currently filming Inception next to Leonardo DiCaprio, where she’ll play Ariadne, DiCaprio’s sidekick. As if there was something else this Oscar-nominated, writer/producer, 22-year-old girl couldn’t do. She’s keeping herself pretty busy and making us all proud in the process.
What do you think of Page’s new job?
