Wannabe: According to MTV, Ashlee Simpson, who has made her presence known on TV via "7th Heaven" and "The Ashlee Simpson Show," has been cast in the film Wannabe, which starts shooting in November.

"The movie involves music and actors, and all that kind of stuff," she said. "I play an actor, and it's basically about musicians trying to find their way. There's a guy who gets too old to be a musician, and all of us become his fan club. So it's going to be a great movie, and [studio] Lions Gate does edgier films, so it's going to be really exciting."
