Casey Anthony The Movie: Guess Who Will Play Her !

The frenzy to find the right actress to play Casey Anthony is over.   ;

Canadian actress Holly Deveaux has been chosen for the role of the infamous Florida woman in an upcoming Lifetime movie.

Deveaux will star in "Prosecuting Casey Anthony", based on Jeff Ashton’s best-selling book, "Imperfect Justice", opposite Rob Lowe, who will play Ashton.  

It has to be noted that the movie will center primarily around the trial, not the events leading up to it.

So you may wonder:" Who exactly is Deveaux and what makes her appropriate to play one of the most controversial figures in recent U.S. history?" Here are five facts about Deveaux:

1. Deveaux is most well-known for starring in the Canadian television series "Baxter."

2. She bears a striking resemblance to Anthony; Devaux has long brown hair, green eyes and porcelain skin.

3. Deveaux may have snagged the role from more established Hollywood actresses. Just for the record, it was rumored that Kristen Stewart, Alyssa Milano and Jennifer Love Hewitt were also being considered.

4. She is only 19; Anthony was 22 at the time of her trial.

5. She will need to channel Anthony’s personality quickly, since shooting for the movie begins next week and will run for 20 days.

What do you think?

Are you excited about the movie and the casting choices?

  1. It was just a matter of time until she made bank off that awful tragedy. Must be a shortage of ideas for movie making in Hollywood!

    1. A Hollywood movie about her life will make this monster a hero. This is what I am afraid of...
