Jessica Alba, who plays Nancy in Sin City, talked about her character Tuesday night on CBS' The Late Show with David Letterman.

"In the comics, my character is topless and bottomless, and I thought that it would definitely be distracting to be topless and bottomless," Alba said. "It was an option."

And how did she become a erotic dancer for the film?

"Robert (Rodriguez, who directed with Frank Miller) told me to to feel it like Selma (Hayek) did in the From Dusk 'til Dawn. It was terrifying.

"I practiced in my hotel room with my underwear and my lasso. I walked around with my lasso for seven days, lassoing everything I could, from trash cans to traffic cones."

In other Sin City news:

Elijah Wood, who plays Kevin, appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday morning, and talked about doing wire work for the film.

"I do all these jump-kick kinds of things, and I had no idea I was going to be on wires," Wood said. "The funny thing is I got there on set, I had no preparation and I had two days of work. And we started doing these scenes and they were like, "Are you good with wire work?" And I said, "What? Sure, I'm up for anything."

"So I just kind went for it. And midway through the day of doing all this work, Robert Rodriguez, the director, said, 'I didn't quite realize how physical this was going to be.' Because it's all frames from the comic book. And then actually doing it and making those frames move, you realize actually what a physical role this was."

Morena Boccarin told The Continuum she enjoyed playing the Black Canary in Cartoon Network's Justice League Unlimited.

"Tons of fun! Tons of fun!" Boccarin told The Continuum during a signing for the Serenity movie at Wizard World Los Angeles on Sunday.

Baccarin, 26, who also mentioned Justice League during the Serenity panel, voiced Black Canary in "The Cat and the Canary," which debuted on Feb. 5, and the as-yet-unscheduled "Double Date."

"She was splendid," voice director Andrea Romano said of Baccarin. "We're so lucky to get people like her to come in and play."

Baccarin is one of several Serenity cast members to lend their voices to Justice League Unlimited.

Nathan Fillion is voicing Vigilante and Gina Torres is voicing Vixen in upcoming episodes, and Adam Baldwin did the voices of Jonah Hex and Bonk.

The WB has released a description and image from "Onyx," the Wednesday, April 13 episode of Smallville.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"A glimpse of the future Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) is revealed after a kryptonite explosion splits Lex in two and his evil side - Alexander - is released. Alexander immediately imprisons Lex in the mansion and begins his rampage by trying to kill Clark (Tom Welling) and Chloe (Allison Mack) in the lab, jousting with Lionel (John Glover) and convincing him to return to the dark side and finally, threatening to close the Talon unless Lana (Kristin Kreuk) moves in with him."
