Update: The trades have confirmed Graham’s cashing in “Scream 4″.
Rumor has it, Lauren Graham, last seen playing TV’s spunkiest (not to mention hottest) MILF in “Gilmore Girls”, has joined the cast of Wes Craven’s “Scream 4″. Though there is no word on what role she’ll be playing, we can assume it’ll be perky and delightful, or if she’s channeling her “Bad Santa” days, then down and dirty, but still perky and delightful. Post-“Gilmore”, Graham has been raising more kids on TV as Sarah Braverman in NBC’s “Parenthood”, and recently did voice work on “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”. This rumor courtesy of the boys at Ghouls on Film.
“Scream 4’s” casting has been under way for some time, with newcomers Emma Roberts essentially cast as the new young lead. She’s joined by former “Heroes” star Hayden Panettiere and Rory Culkin, and they will be joined by original castmembers Neve Campbell and the Arquettes, Courteney and David.
Shooting was supposed to commence this month in Michigan.
