Ashley Tisdale cast in 'Scary Movie 5' - does this mean no Anna Faris?
'High School Musical' star bags a lead role in the comedy sequel
Is Ashley Tisdale replacing Anna Faris as the central heroine in Dimension's "Scary Movie" series?
That may well be the case, as it's been announced by the studio that Tisdale has been cast as "one of the leads" in Dimension's "Scary Movie 5," the first film in the slapstick-comedy series since "Scary Movie 4" hit theaters back in 2006.
The question is, does Tisdale possess the chops to live up to Faris' comically-adept performances in the first four installments? She may have done well in the 'tween-comedy realm of "High School Musical," but whether she can hold her own in an adult (albeit lowbrow) comedy remains to be seen.
