Meet Your Washingtoniennes: HBO Casts Its Leading Ladies

HBO has some interesting projects in the works these days, and one I'm definitely following is the adaptation of The Washingtonienne, which is being executive-produced by none other than Sarah Jessica Parker. The network has just picked its leading ladies, so let's meet the women who will soon be cavorting around Washington:

  • Rachael Taylor (left, best known for Transformers) will play Jackie, the central character who comes to DC from New York to work as a speechwriter but starts out as a lowly intern.
  • Bitsie Tulloch (center, best known for Quarterlife) will play April, a college friend of Jackie's and now her Capitol Hill mentor. She's living "a prematurely middle-age lifestyle" with her boyfriend, an aide to a high-powered senator.
  • Amanda Walsh (right, best known for Sons and Daughters and Disturbia) rounds out the trio as small-town girl Laura, a workaholic with conservative views that she's constantly having to defend.

Fans of the book, does any of this sound familiar? And whether you've read the book or not, do these sound like 20-somethings you'd want to get to know?
