Ellen Page Can't Wait To "Kick Ass On Wheels"

Pretty awesome news: Juno star Ellen Page will star in Drew Barrymore's directing debut, Whip It!, playing an "alterna-teen" and reluctant beauty-pageant contestant named Bliss who joins a female roller-derby team. (Says Page: "I can't wait to kick ass on wheels!"). In other Tinseltown deals, former porn star Traci Lords has signed up to appear in Kevin Smith's Zack & Miri Make A Porno. No details on what her role will entail, but it's not a stretch to say that it will probably involve... porn.
