Jessica Biel Having a Nervous Breakdown


Jessica Biel must be in “Seventh Heaven.” The word from Broadway is that she will costar in the Lincoln Center musical of Pedro Almodovar’s “Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.”

Oscar Isaac, of “Robin Hood,” will play the Antonio Banderas part from the movie, sources say.

Each of the actors was in workshops of the musical.

Biel has been drifting, trying to get her career in gear. But it turns out she can sing and dance. Almodovar is said to be thrilled with her. Maybe Justin Timberlake has been giving her pointers!
