Ashlee Simpson Joins Melrose Place

Ashlee Simpson has joined the cast of The CW’s revival of Melrose Place.

According to EW, the 24-year-old former 7th Heaven actress will play “small-town girl Violet, a character whose disarming naiveté masks the calculating, shrewd sex kitten within.”

Already on board for Melrose Place is Katie Cassidy as publicist Ella and Michael Rady as aspiring filmmaker Jonah.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Ashlee’s return to the small screen?

UPDATE: Ashlee confirms the news to OK!, saying, “I’m thrilled to be joining the cast of Melrose Place and look forward to being a part of its new generation of residents.”

  • t

    i hope it works out

  • emma

    Gee this is really happening isn’t it? I thought Mischa was set to be cast aswell?
    Katie Cassidy is too good for this in terms of being a good actress. She is a weird choice in my opinion.

  • gogol dancer

    If only their careers will disappear like the original cast members did then by all means ruin whatever excuse for a career you have now so we don’t have to see these twats in the future..,

  • gerard Vandenberg

    They want to change it into a HORROR-CYCLUS, folks!!

  • Michelle

    I’m watching it for Katie Cassidy! Cool about Ashlee but her voice annoys me when she talks.

  • sarah may

    I thought she was cute in 7th heaven. I like her as an actress since thats how I first found out about her.

  • k

    wow this show is going to be so stupid. the 90210 and Melrose remake ppl need to figure out how to cast ppl. Because Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage do a much better job of doing that(hence Gossip Girl and its upcoming spinoff’s Amazing Casts)

  • Sarah

    Oh great Fall Out Boy’s tour of cameos continues,

  • sam

    With the level of talent on this show, Mischa Barton would be a perfect addition

  • gaytweeter

    Any original cast members going to join? Would be nice to see Andrew Shue or Grant Show!
