Clint snaps up Amanda Bynes

I love Amanda Byrnes.

Now when I say that, I don’t necessarily mean I love her movies (though I did enjoy “Sydney White” – that was fun; the rest, not so much), I just really like the girl. She’s always a pleasure to interview – one of the sweetest, most down-to-earth youngsters I’ve ever put a Dictaphone in front of – and seems genuinely happy to chat. Can’t say that about many newly-breasted teen moppets. In Bynes case though, there’s not a bad word to be said. And I do think there’s potential there too – – she’s a very funny girl; just needs the right vehicle.

And it seems I’m not the only Clint that loves Bynes. Screen Gems has had the smarts to sign the pretty little moppet up for two pics.

She will first co-star opposite “Superbad” beauty Emma Stone in the Will Gluck-directed comedy “Easy A,” and she and Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper will then craft a star vehicle for her second project.

Culpepper said that Bynes, who gained fame as star of Nickelodeon’s “The Amanda Show,” has been on his radar for some time.

“She’s one of the few who can make that graceful transition from kid to adult star because she has such strong comic chops,” Culpepper said.

Scripted by playwright Bert V. Royal, “Easy A” stars Emma Stone as a high school student who is victimized by a false rumor that she lost her virginity, until she exploits the rumor mill for her own benefit and becomes wildly popular. Bynes has signed on to play a puritanical high school queen bee.
