Appearing on the Feb. 16 episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jessica Biel announced that her passion project The Sinner, will hit USA Network this summer.
During the interview, Biel discussed how she and producing partner Michelle Purple (who Fallon said “has the coolest name ever”) pitched the idea to the Chairman of NBCUniversal Cable, Bonnie Hammer. The role -- which sees Biel’s character commit a very public, brutal act of violence –- is a departure for the actress: “It’s a question of, ‘Well, why did she do that?’ not ‘Who did it?’” Biel said.
But The Tonight Show conversation wasn’t all serious business. Fallon was particularly amused by one of actress’ Instagram posts, which revealed that Biel enjoys eating in the shower.
“This is just mom life,” Biel said. “Sometimes it’s a huge success. Sometimes it’s a huge failure … Honestly, you should try it.”
