This the new Lucy Ewing. Are you excited?

Jessica Out, Who's-That In

Because I swear we will cover every aspect of the


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


. Hard to believe, but that's all I gotta say about this.
