It's pretty much a rite of passage for stars of soapy series to take on horror movie roles. With that in mind, it's no surprise that upcoming thriller The Roommate has assembled a cast that includes Friday Night Lights' Minka Kelly, Hellcats' Aly Michalka, and Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester. (Cam Gigandet, who starred on The O.C., is here, too). It's a predictable, Single White Female for college students kind of movie, with Meester playing Kelly's new college roommie, Rebecca. They hit it off right away, but it's not long before Sara (Kelly) realizes that Rebecca's got a couple of screws loose.
The typical stalker behavior follows: Sara realizes that Rebecca has no friends and is on "medication," while Rebecca is quietly plotting to take down Sara's other friends and boyfriends. The trailer is worth a look just to get a chuckle at seeing Meester out of her prim and proper Blair Waldorf attire and into psycho mode. Check it when you read more.
