Jessica Out, Who's-That In
Because I swear we will cover every aspect of the Dallas movie, from pre-production to its first screening on an airplane, here's today's utterly inessential tidbit : Seems Jessica Simpson, who actually grew up in the area, has been Jock-blocked from the role of Lucy Ewing, which is now going to Katie Cassidy, who was on 7th Heaven but is probably better known as the daughter of Keith Partridge hisself, David Cassidy . Katie's also in the new Adam Sandler movie Click . Hard to believe, but that's all I gotta say about this. --Robert Wilonsky
