The producers of a Melrose Place revival have tapped Ashlee Simpson-Wentz as one of its leads. According to hollywoodreporter.com, she'll play Violet, "a bright-eyed but shrewd small-town girl and recent L.A. transplant who has come to town with a secret." Apparently, Violet has a lot in common with Amy Locane's Sandy Harling character from the original series. Simpson-Wentz is joined by Michael Rady and Katie Cassidy in the initial Melrose cast.
In related news, Simpson-Wentz and her husband, Pete Wentz, will guest star on a March 18 episode of CSI: NY as "Bonnie-and-Clyde wannabes."
