So Mischa Barton may not be mixing it up with Ashlee Simpson-Wentz on The CW’s “Melrose Place” this pilot season, but her new project will boast a co-star with a musical background.
The network confirms that “High School Musical”‘s Corbin Bleu (Chad Danforth) has been cast in Ashton Kutcher‘s “A Beautiful Life” as a male model with a Lenny Kravitz-type vibe. Bleu is not signed on as a series regular, but will definitely appear in the pilot.
Other names attached include Sara Paxton (“Summerland”), Benjamin Hollingsworth (“The Cutting Edge 3″), Ashley Madekwe (“Secret Diary of a Call Girl”) and Nico Tortorella.
So, Corbin Bleu. Smart move on The CW’s part, no? How many of you “HSM” fans are into this news? Make you a little more interested in the show?
