Elizabeth Banks (C'96) heats up youtube video!

As Elizabeth Banks' (C'96) acting career gets hotter and hotter, she seems to be the (positive) subject of many a blog and user generated video. I just found this one video where the user took clips from her appearance in the film The Heights in some sort of dedication video. As always she looks hot!

(...By the way, if you haven't seen that movie, it's a great movie that I highly recommend - costarring Glen Close and James Marsden.)
