Elisha Cuthbert Lands the Lead in a CBS Remake of Ny-Lon

It's too bad we've overdone it with those "always be ____ to me" headlines recently . . .
. . . because Elisha Cuthbert, who really, really will always be Jack Bauer's daughter to me, has just landed herself a starring role in Ny-Lon, a CBS drama pilot.

Not to mention those "___ is the new ____" references . . .
. . . because Cuthbert is the new Rashida Jones. She's playing the role of Edie, originated by Jones in the 2005 British version of the series.

What's the story?
Kim Bauer Cuthbert will play a New York teacher/part-time record store clerk who embarks on a trans-Atlantic romance with Michael, a London stock broker. After a fateful encounter in London, they must decide whether their relationship is a fling or something more serious. Here's a rundown of what happened in the UK series' seven episodes.

Also: Ny-Lon.
I can't help but roll my eyes every time I come across that name. But hey, I guess it worked once before . . .

i really liked the channel 4 (uk) version. not sure about this one though ... a lot will be based on whether or not they shoot on location. i believe the original was shot on location - both nyc and london.

I look forward to seeing Rashida and Stephen in the original on DVD. I'll pass on Kim, er, Elisha's version.
