The Coveted Dallas Role

The role of Lucy Ewing was being sought after by many in young Hollywood. Names like Jessica, Lindsay, Paris, and Kristin were being thrown around as the possible actresses to work with J Lo and John Travolta in the big screen version of the hit TV show. Turns out producers went in another direction and took a virtually unknown actress named Katie Cassidy, the daughter of David Cassidy. US Weekly reports:

7th Heaven actress Katie Cassidy, 19, has beaten out Jessica Simpson and Kristin Cavallari for the role that they were both up for in the new Dallas movie (also starring J. Lo and John Travolta’s enormous head). Cassidy, who is the daughter of former teen idol David Cassidy and most recently starred in the film Click, will play the character Lucy Ewing.

“Producers wanted to steer clear of the drama and also thought Katie was simply better for the role,” a source tells Us Weekly.

And by staying away from drama that meant that J Lo supposedly did not want another diva on the set. I wonder if the producers saw how easily Katie seems to be able to go from innocent to provocative?

I dont know who this chick is but she's ugly and skanky. At least Kirsten is hot even if I'm not a fan.

The movie will probally flop, but then again ,some really crappy movies have been big hits so who knows...there will probally be some big scandal right before the movie comes out to get people intrested well have to wait and see.... Foxxie I saw the THS of Nick too.What got me was the video of him looking at Jessica when she walked down the aisle that crushed me as well as the baby stuff. He had such a look of love for her that you dont see to often. Its sad when fame destroys a person! I hope Karma bites her in the ass!! TEAM LACHEY!!

This movie just has sucks written all over it. They also are not even going to film any of it with the actors in Dallas. Anyways her shirt in the second pic says Rock Heiress but I think in order to be a Heiress you have to have tons of money something I am doubting her father has all that much of considering there were very little laws to protect young stars back in his day.

Wow it's amazing that Hollywood claims to want to beat the slump they've been in and make more money and then they say they are remaking "Dallas". The last reunion special flopped for CBS and John Travolta and J.Lo do not a good movie make. Kristen Caliwhatever and Jessica Simpson were considered, LMAO. Neither one can act, at least the girl they picked was on a weekly show. I smell a bomb all over this movie, but it's ashamed Hollywood didn't learn their lesson from this year's "Posiedon". Are there any Popsugars who are waiting with baited breath to see this movie?

Wow. Angel and devil. Why is this role so coveted anyway? I've heard so much about it and I already know I won't see it. Jennifer Lopez is in it and I don't pay to see bad actors

Yes, she is Jesse McCartney's girlfriend! She is in all of his music videos. I think the second picture was definitely taken at a fashion show.

Hello beautiful Skye, how are you today?
Skye Skye 11 years
What is she wearing?!!! Goodness, where are her parents? If my daughter EVER walked out of the house like that, I would keel over and die. I know that actresses have to sex it up a little in Hollywood...because its such a male dominated industry...but come on. That's awful. Ok, I'm done ranting. I just find it disturbing that a girl would dress like that if she's not a porn star or something. Also, I'm pretty slender, and I like to show off my hard work at the gym just like anyone else, but there's a way to do it without looking like a tramp.
Jessica Simpson can't act for crap and Kristin Cavallari's voice is annoying; we'll see how Katie does (if anyone even sees the movie). I agree with JustWatch- once the guys hear about her/see her in the movies, she will get so much attention for just being "hott" and then she will be another "it" girl for everyone to stalk.
