Hayden to Play Yet Another Cheerleader

She's cheertastic?
For a third time, Hayden Panettiere will be putting on the little outfit and cheering her heart out, this time for a film adaptation of the novel I Love You, Beth Cooper by Larry Doyle. Doyle is a former writer for The Simpsons and now works for The New Yorker. Chris Columbus (Adventures in Babysitting, Mrs. Doubtfire, two Harry Potter movies) is on board to direct.

Besides cheering, what else will she, um, do?
Apparently, "Panettiere would play Beth, the school's hottest cheerleader who shows nerdy valedictorian Denis Cooverman the best night of his life after he proclaims his love for her during his graduation speech."

Typecast much?
Hayden currently plays Claire the regenerating cheerleader on NBC's Heroes, and she previously starred in the third Bring It On movie, Bring It On: All or Nothing, so we're used to seeing her in the cheerleading getups. I wonder if she just likes the outfits? Now I want to know who will play Denis Cooverman. As long as it's not that kid who played West from Heroes, I'm happy.
