Jessica will be taking on her most thrilling role yet starring in the upcoming series, The Sinner, premiering on USA on Wednesday, August 2 at 10/9c. In the eight-episode series, Jessica plays Cora, a young mother who commits a very shocking and very public act of violence. It's up to Det. Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) to find out why.


Jessica's role in The Sinner proves that she can take on any role. But the A-lister's versatility isn't just reserved for acting. Jessica's impressive acting resume is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to her many talents.

If there was ever a chameleon in Hollywood, it's Jessica. She has basically done it all when it comes to acting throughout her career, taking on memorable roles in everything from heartwarming family series (7th Heaven) to rom-coms (I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry) to period dramas (Easy Virtue) to action flicks (The A-Team), and the list goes on and on. So you better believe we can't wait to see Jessica's harrowing performance in The Sinner.

Jessica and her husband, Justin Timberlake, make up one of our favorite celebrity couples, not only because they're both amazing at what they do and just ooze cool, but also because their love for each other always warms our hearts. This family got even more adorable when Jessica and Justin welcomed son Silas Randall Timberlake in 2015. The 2-year-old is now basically a "mini-Justin" and has swagger just like his daddy, Jessica recently gushed to Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. Jimmy agreed that, “He’s the coolest kid. I felt, like, intimidated hanging out with him.” 

3. She Sings!

As if Jessica couldn't get any more talented, she also has a beautiful singing voice. She even starred as Sarah Brown in the Hollywood Bowl's concert of Guys and Dolls in 2009. Luck be a lady like Jessica!

4. She's Treating Los Angeles

Jessica has the chicest and most family-friendly fudge shop in town.

Jessica is also quite the foodie, so much so that she opened up her own fudge shop in Los Angeles called Au Fudge in 2016. The idea was to open up a space that children and adults could enjoy. And let's be real: Who doesn't love fudge?

5. She's Making the World a Better Place

Jessica is all about giving back. The actress is always taking time out to be philanthropic, whether it was hosting the charity: water Ball in 2011being honored by GLSEN, along with her hubby, in 2015, or recently getting the word out about honoring and supporting those serving in the armed forces. 

Can't get enough Jessica? Be sure to tune in to the series premiere of The Sinner on Wednesday, August 2 at 10/9c on USA. Get a sneak peek of the new series, below.
