“Postal” Star Jackie Tohn Set to Become  Next“American Idol”


February 3, 2009


Tucson, AZ: Jackie Tohn the female lead in Uwe Boll’s film adaptation of Running With Scissors’ video game franchise, POSTAL, has taken another step into the showbiz universe, winning a coveted finalist position on the upcoming season of“"American Idol.”

“Jackie’s a talented girl, a real hot number and Running With Scissors supports her all the way,” RWS agitator-in-chief Vince Desi proclaimed after viewing Tohn’s latest success.“We hope our fans will be tuning in and casting their votes her way.” Then he added:“But when the set’s glass walls came crashing down behind the American Idol judges, Jackie must have thought she was on an Uwe Boll set!”

The stunning actress appeared in a range of TV series from“The Sopranos” to“Veronica Mars” before Boll cast her as Goth girl“Faith” in his ambitious attempt at full-out“Postal” satire. But talent-wise, Jackie can do more than act; she’s a guitarist with an impressive set of vocal chops. So she packed up her acoustic guitar and headed for the Big Apple and the eighth season of“American Idol” auditions.“Once again the tentacles of the RWS POSTAL brand have reached into the hearts of America, I’m truly touched,” continued the teary-eyed RWS chief Judge Vince Desi.

“I’ve been doing this for ten years,” Jackie told the infamous judge Simon Cowell and his merry crew, adding“maybe this is a way that I can share what I’ve got.” And share she did, literally bringing down the walls during her successful audition.
