You’re Emma Stone. You’re gorgeous but also approachable; you get to have sex with Ryan Gosling on-screen in not one, but two, movies; you’re dating Andrew Garfield. With your likeability and clout, you have your pick of directors and Oscar-bait projects. Instead, you decide to shoot a guest spot on Nickelodeon’s iCarly.
EW reports that Emma will be one of the celebrity guests on iCarly‘s final season: She’ll play Carly’s (Miranda Cosgrove) superfan, which in my mind translates to some variation on Amanda Bynes‘ uberfan character Penelope Taynt. So I’m imagining Emma playing up her goofy charm, possibly with some slapstick thrown in. After all, she kills it in scenes like this adorable bit from Easy A:
I have to imagine that it was Emma who agreed to do this, because she obviously doesn’t need the press. She’s got The Amazing Spider-Man coming out in just a few weeks! I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that Emma genuinely enjoys blowing off steam in appearances like this. She was game for all of the Saturday Night Live sketches when she hosted last fall, after all. Still, the cameo will help keep her in the zeitgeist, especially since One Direction will also be stopping by the iCarly set sometime this season.
