Cassidy Hops-a-long to Nerds remake

“Dallas” star joins Kyle Newman’s next


Rising young actress Katie Cassidy – who recently co-starred in the remake of horror classic “When A Stranger Calls” – has beaten out an audition room full of perky blondes to win the role of Suzy Stone in FOX Atomic’s “Revenge of the Nerds” remake.

Cassidy, who also recently won the role of Lucy Ewing – over Lindsay Lohan and Jessica Simpson – in the “Dallas” feature, plays a character that’s the head of the Pi Delta Pi sorority and queen of the campus.

The Kyle Newman (“Fanboys”) directed film has “Charlies Angels” director McG serving as producer.
