Joins the all-star cast of “Dallas”


According to TV.com, rising newcomer Katie Cassidy (she’s the foxy blonde that play’s Adam Sandler’s grown-up daughter in “Click”) has beaten both Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Simpson to the much-coveted role of Lucy Ewing in the TV-to-film transfer, “Dallas”.

Quoting US Weekly magazine, an insider – usually a guy in the mailroom whose using a butter knife to carefully open studio mail – stated that Jennifer Lopez, who’ll play in Sue-Ellen in the film, was dead-set against having a Lohan or a Simpson in the film: “Jennifer doesn’t want a diva on the set.” (Mirror Mirror on the wall, who’s….)

Another rising young actress, Kristin Cavallari, was also in the running for the role of Lucy. It’s the second blow (easy!) this month for the flaxen novice, who was also just pipped at the post for another role – that of Daisy Duke in the “Dukes of Hazzard” prequel, which went to April Scott.

Cassidy, 19, (oh yeah, she’s the daughter of forgotten heartthrob David Cassidy), who has also appeared in the films “When A Stranger Calls” and (the forthcoming) “Black Christmas”, takes over the role of Lucy Ewing from Charlene Tilton, who bought the character to life on the tube.

Lucy Ewing was the daughter of Gary and Val Ewing, and sister to Bobby and Betsy. Her character left the original series in 1990, with Lucy catching a jet plane to Italy. Not that I’d know….
