Scarlett talks about The Spirit in issue 149 of Total Film magazine, on sale this Friday. I will be sure to pick up a copy for us. Meanwhile, here’s a preview:

Scarlett Johansson will return to the big screen next month, and this time she’ll be sexier than ever.

The Lost In Translation actress will play the baddie’s sidekick Silken Floss in the film adaptation of comic book The Spirit – a role which director Frank Miller included in the film just for Scarlett.

“Well, she’s a doctor or a nurse, really, but yes, she’s very sexy. Frank really allowed that to develop. Very forward and sexy in a 1940s way,” Scarlett told Empire magazine [Total Film?].

She added that the dialogue, comprising of witty one-liners, made her character even sexier.

“That was so much fun. I mean the dialogue was great. Only Frank could write this stuff… Forget about obscene – it’s worse than that because it’s so clever!”

But Scarlett said her character wasn’t just a bad girl.

“Like a lot of the characters, she’s kind of in a grey area. They’re not really good and they’re not really bad, you know? They’re products of their environment, I think,” she said.

Today I made caps of many of the recent charity/vote videos Scarlett has been a part of, as well as three different videos relating to the Case Western University speaking. Also many MQ pictures from the A Funny Thing Happened event have been replaced with HQ versions. Lastly gallery wise, I made a scan from the November issue of GQ, it’s the 25 sexiest women in film of all time where Scarlett was listed with the famous Lost in Translation opening scene and there are three new stills from The Spirit.

Also, unlike previous reported, Miss Johansson was not apart of the Will.i.am “It’s a New Day” video. No other celebrities actually sing on the track but there are video cameos, but none of her. You can watch the video here.

As previously reported, yesterday Scarlett Johansson attended the A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s Event. She looked stunning in a white Dolce & Gabana dress and diamonds with her hair in an up-do.

We’ve added 38 46 pictures of the event.

Also, regarding the Obama win, Scarlett said “The overwhelming hope that Obama inspires is infectious.”

“I’ve always maintained a strong faith in the power of Obama’s positive campaign and am so proud of every citizen who took a stand, participated in the political process and insisted their voices be heard.”

As a follow-up to his run in the New York City Marathon on Sunday, Ryan Reynolds attended the “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s” 2008 Benefit For The Michael J. Fox Foundation on Wednesday night (November 5).

And, of course, Scarlett Johansson accompanied her hubby to the charitable evening, which was held at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers in New York City.

Reynolds ran for Team Fox of the Michael J. Fox foundation, inspired by his father Jim Reynolds’ struggle with Parkinson’s disease, this past weekend – finishing the long-distance race at a respectable time of 3:50:22.

Rap star Will.i.am is set to release a new song celebrating Barack Obama’s victory in the US presidential election.

The song, “It’s a New Day”, which will be released online, is the singer’s third track about Obama.

The Black Eyed Peas singer worked throughout election night to finish the song said it was a tribute to the American people.

The 33-year-old has been a prominent supporter of Mr Obama in the election race.

The song also features actress Scarlett Johansson, Herbie Hancock and Lewis Hamilton’s girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger.

The musician, who scored a top ten hit with Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole in April, spent part of election night in Chicago, where Mr Obama delivered his victory address.

The song will debut today (November 5th), on dipdive.com.

Scarlett Johansson campaigned for the Obama-Biden ticket at Case Western Reserve University today in Cleveland, Ohio.

Johansson told students and other supporters that Barack Obama’s stand on the War in Iraq sealed her endorsement, but also approves of his positions on health care, education, and the economy.

Scarlett took questions from the audience and was asked about Sarah Palin. Johansson claims Palin would roll back most of the gains made by the women’s movement, and called the Alaska governor inexperienced, and a very scary person.

Johansson says as she campaigns across the country, she doesn’t expect people to take the word of an actress very seriously, but wants to make her views known.

Johansson contends this is an exciting time to be young, and a great time to make a difference by voting.
