Apparently, post GREENBERG, Juno Temple has become quite the hot commodity.

According to THR, the young actress has snatched up three roles (including one previously rumored).

She will join Milla Jovovich and William H. Macy in the drama, DIRTY GIRL, which follows “a notorious high school slut who runs away with her closeted gay class partner to drive from Oklahoma to California to find the father she's never met.” She has also joined the cast of another girl-on-the-run flick, entitled GOODNIGHT MOON, which sees her and AnnaSophia Robb as two girls who run away to L.A.  The final role is her turn in JACK & DIANE, a werewolf/teenage girl love story, which was rumored to be hers a few weeks ago.

These roles are definitely not standard for a woman her age, and I must admit, they all sound rather interesting in different ways.  I have enjoyed Temple in what I have seen her in, primarily a small role in ATONEMENT, and she seems to be a rather skilled thespian.  DIRTY GIRL could be interesting if done with a distinctly indie set of sensibilities, and while GOODNIGHT MOON sounds a little ho hum, JACK & DIANE could be a true saving grace and an interesting take on the werewolf genre.
