Tyra Banks is Back Just in Time For Christmas
It took “Life-Size 2” to get Tyra Banks back in the movie game. Decked out in candy stripes, Banks, who is also an executive producer of the film, is playing the role of a magic Eve doll.
In the movie, Grace Manning played by Francia Raisa (who starts in “Grownish”) is the 20-something CEO of Marathon Toys, a big time toy company that was started by her mother. Marathon Toys is most famous for manufacturing the iconic Eve doll.
According to producers, the main character is in the middle of her quarter-life crisis, partly because she’s in over her head as CEO. She’s not holding up her end of the bargain with some “wild-child ways” causing the company’s stock to take a big dive.
However, with the help of her young next door neighbor, Grace’s old Eve doll played by Tyra Banks magically awakens. Banks’ character helps get the young woman back on track and gives her the confidence to be the woman and leader she was born to be.
According to ABC, “Life-Size 2” premieres Sunday, Dec. 2, at 9:00-11:00 p.m. EST/PST.
“Life-Size 2” stars Tyra Banks, Francia Raisa, Gavin Stenhouse, Shanica Knowles, Hank Chen and Alison Fernandez.
