Pink (real name Alecia Moore), 32, did have a cameo in Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle in 2003 and another small role in Catacombs in 2007, but this is the singer’s first leading role.
Spotted filming in New York City’s West Village Tuesday, she is set to star alongside such pros as Gwenyth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins. Her character shares a bond with Book of Mormon’s Josh Gad, who, as Neil, is another of three characters undergoing 12-step treatment for sex addiction.
