Amber Tamblyn spins through “Spiral”

I think you’ll agree with me that we just haven’t seen enough of Amber Tamblyn lately.

Her talent was evident in the still-lamented Joan of Arcadia, and I expected to see a lot more of her, even when the series was canceled. True, she was cast in Babylon Fields, but the show didn’t make it to air. (Actually, I was kind of relieved about that once I saw some of the icky trailers.) She also starred in a Hallmark movie, The Russell Girl, but if it aired, I missed it.

Tamblyn’s upcoming movie, Spiral, is not the kind of film I normally watch, but the trailer drew me in. Spiral is the story of Mason, a reclusive artist with a boring job in a phone bank. Nobody but his boss, played by Chuck‘s Zachary Levi, even notices Mason until Tamblyn’s character Amber (yes, Amber) befriends him. And then things get spooky.

Is it just me, or does Tamblyn remind you of Mary Steenburgen, who played her mom in Joan?

Spiral starts February 8. Will you be there?
