Hayden and Julia Join Forces for Fireflies


"Heroes" darling Hayden Panettiere has joined the cast of Julia Roberts' latest project, Fireflies in the Garden, which began filming in Austin last week. The film is loosely based on director Dennis Lee's life, and, according to the story description, "explores the complexities of love and commitment in a family torn apart when faced with an unexpected tragedy."

Though the impressive cast also includes Ryan Reynolds, Emily Watson, and Willem Dafoe, none of them can say that they've played an indestructible cheerleader before, so Hayden's got that going for her. I'll be interesting to see how the actress handles a dramatic film role.

The closest I've seen to her playing a dramatic role was as the troubled teenage orphan sibling in Raising Helen. Angst! But she was so cute, though. -Bug
