A few weeks back, Channing Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan, jumped off the big 'G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra' press tour train at their New York stop for a few days to get back to work in Los Angeles. She also recently tweeted about preparing for various auditions, and I'm really excited to tell you that she has officially landed at least one of the roles...
E! News and Entertainment Weekly is reporting (and Jen confirmed via her Twitter) that she will be joining the cast of "Melrose Place", the CW's highly-anticipated reboot of the popular 90's drama.
Executive producer Todd Slavkin confirmed that Jenna will appear in at least two episodes (episodes seven and eight) and will "play a movie executive named Kendra Wilson who works on the Paramount lot and has her eyes on Jonah Miller (Michael Rady), an aspiring filmmaker."
Her character is described as an "ivy league graduate, wickedly sexy and wickedly smart," and Slavkin said Jenna's "audition blew us away,", so they hope to see more of her beyond the current two episode commitment.
After the announcement today, Jenna tweeted, "Melrose place is a fun and sexy show and I'm happy to join." I couldn't be more happy for her. Huge CONGRATS to Jen!!!
Melrose Place will premiere on Tuesday, September 8 @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW (after 90210).
In the mean time, you can watch Jenna in her extremely popular Lifetime movie 'Fab Five: The Texas Cheerleader Scandal' on Saturday, August 22nd at 6:00 PM Central. Check your local listings for more details.
