Sofia Vassilieva confirmed for Hellcats?
Are we one step closer to confirming last month's rumor that Sofia Vassilieva has been cast in Hellcats? The Futon Critic lists her in the role of Patty "The Wedge" Wedgerman, but with a question mark. They also have the notation (FKA) next to Robbie Jones' name. Does that stand for Formerly Known As, indicating that a name change is in the works for his character? Luis was originally conceived as a person of Cuban descent, but Robbie, an African American actor, was subsequently cast in the role.

Yay! If this gets picked up, will it start in the fall?

I remember those videos you posted for Patty. I thought the SPN girl was pretty bad, but the other one was good in that "bitch-you-love-to-hate" kinda way. I'd love to see more audition tapes. It's fun to see how different people view the same material!

It would air in the fall as far as I know, although I suppose it could be positioned as a mid-year replacement, like Life Unexpected was. I think the pilot pick-ups will be announced at the Upfronts in May. If Hellcats goes to series, will Tom make an appearance? I think the last time he was at the Upfronts was the year the CW debuted as a network.

I love watching those audition tapes, too! It's fascinating to me to see the different take on the character each actor has. I did find a couple more, for the part of Luis, but they were so bad they weren't worth sharing.

Tommy's keeping them busy, it seems.

He is! And the beginning of production on Hellcats dovetails perfectly with the end of Smallville for the season. Hellcats is scheduled to start filming at the Smallville studios the day after Smallville's last official day. I'm not surprised they're doing so much prep work. They only have a week to film the presentation, so they'll need to be ready to go.

OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!!! THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!! She's Ariel Dubois on Medium! I'd totally LOVE that if she would get cast on HellCats!!

*cheers to Tom if it works out*

I talked about this in the post where I first reported the rumors, but the one thing that makes me hesitate is that she's only 17 years old, and looks even younger. All of the cheerleader characters are described as being in their 20's, and the other actors range in age from 21 to 26. So I'm not sure whether to believe this or not.
