Now I am definitely DVRing this show.
Melrose Place just added a saucy young red head to their cast list. Nope – it’s not Marcia Cross. Instead, singer and new mom Ashlee Simpson has signed on for the remake.
According to EW.com,
The onetime 7th Heaven star will play small-town girl Violet, a character whose disarming naivetÃ© masks the calculating, shrewd sex kitten within. In other words, the little tramp’s Sydney.
Simpson joins a cast that so far includes Katie Cassidy (as ambitious publicist Ella), Michael Rady (as aspiring filmmaker Jonah), and, if there is a God, original Melrose icon Heather Locklear, who would be slipping back into Amanda Woodward’s office microminis.
And while we are on the subject. What about Heather Locklear, the girl that can turn any series into gold? It’s looking good! Sources say Heather’s team is working on a deal and the odds are it will happen.
"Both sides are talking," whispers EW.com’s Melrose mole of Locklear. "It’s looking good."
This new cast sounds much more appealing to me than the one from 90210. Will you give this show a shot?
