Ice Princess: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michelle Trachtenberg is prepping to put on a pair of ice skates after scoring the lead role in "Ice Princess" for the Walt Disney Co. Shooting is scheduled to start in late March or early April with Andrew Waller at the helm.

In addition to her role in the Disney comedy, Trachtenberg is in early negotiations for a four-episode arc on HBO's "Six Feet Under."

"Ice Princess," described as "Flashdance" meets Bring It On, follows a brainy ugly duckling (Trachtenberg) who realizes her dream of becoming a champion figure skater with the help of physics, a disgraced coach, three snooty ice princesses, a chorus of stage parents and the hunky boy who drives the Zamboni ice resurfacing machine.
