Sherri Shepard To Play A Prostitute In Katherine Heigl Movie

| Filed under: Film FlickersKatherine Heigl


The View's, Sherri Shepard has just been added to the cast of One For The Money featuring Katherine Heigl.

Shepard is slated to play two different roles as "prostitutes with hearts of gold," in the movie based on the first of the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich.

We're a little confused but it sounds like she'll be playing the role of a prostitute alongside Heigl who's playing a bounty hunter that works for her cousin’s bail bonds business.

This should be inneresting.

What do U think about Sherri's new role??

    I have read this book and it's awesome. I th ink she will do a great job. She'd be funny in that role hands down a good choice.

  2. 2

    I think the casting choices for this movie SUCK! I am a huge fan of the books (One for the Money is the first of many in the series). It was bad enough that they cast Heigl to play Stephanie Plum (I so can not see her in that role), but Sherri as Lula isn't working for me either. They should have took a look at some of the fans recommendations for cast to get ideas. I'm becoming less and less excited to see this.

    I think Heigl should drop off the face of the earth

    LOVE LOVE LOVE these books! Don't like the casting of Katherine Heigl, but Sherry might be a good fit for Lula!!

  5. 5

    She'll be playing Lula! I love Lula.

  6. 6

    She is PERFECT for Lula! Totally PERFECT!!!!!

  7. 7

    Wasn't she Hugh Grants puffer?

  8. 8

    I'm now doubly disappointed. The Stephanie Plum books are a hoot but Heigl is woefully miscast as the lead character and now they're getting Sherri Shepard to play one of my absolute favorite characters, reformed hooker Lula? SO completely wrong. Loni Love would have been FABULOUS as Lula and anyone but Heigl as Stephanie. It's just so freakin' wrong…feh! I won't waste my money on seeing the movie, I'll just keep reading the books.

  9. 9

    I agree with JamesterCK. MAYBE Sherri might be good for Lula, but I highly doubt it. I can't fucking stand Heigl, and the thought of her as Stephanie Plum makes me want to rip my hair out!!!!! I have lost any interest in seeing this film. HOW in CHRIST'S name is Heigl good as a half-Italian/half-Hungarian?!!?!

  10. 10

    These are some of my favorite books! She will be AWESOME as Lula!

  11. 11

    I think Sherri is perfect for Lula but ughhh….Katherine Heigl as Stephanie??? NO WAY!

  12. 12

    This is the 1st casting that has totally hit the nail on the head! I can totally see Sherri as Lulu! Still not thrilled about Katherine Heigel playing Stephanie but really excited about Sherri.

  13. 13

    Not much of a stretch for that dumb one.

  14. 14

    when i think of lula i think of a HUGE girl…sherri is too skinny. and katherine is too tall for the role of stephanie…urgh they r ruining the book with these casting choices…

  15. 15

    She'll rock the role of Lula. The whole series is hilarious and a fast read.

  16. 16

    Read the book, Perez - I can't honestly say that Sherri will or won't work as Lula - but I have to agree with the majority - the casting of this thing SUCKS big time… two unknowns as Morelli and Ranger, a bitch that can't even act well enough to be cast in a jr. high school play as Stephanie….. Can't wait to see who they come up with for Vinny…..the weasel of the bunch…. The books ROCK but, as usual, hollywierd is going to really screw it up, and the movies won't be anywhere near what the actual stories are…..

  17. 17

    She is a complete idiot and a total bigot. Not only will I not support anything this poor excuse for a human being does, I will actively spread the word on it.

  18. 18

    Hmm…I'm currently reading 15 right now…Sherri is not who I was picturing Lula to be. I pictured someone bigger as well. And Katherine Heigl is soooo wrong for the role of Stephanie. I always pictured someone like a younger Sandra Bullock to play her.

  19. 19

    lotta guys like fat hookers

  20. 20

    i think she'll be great… LULA is the character and she's a big strong black woman, with tons of personality and slutty clothes to go with it… i can't wait to see the movies, those books are the best!!

  21. 21

    YAY! This is my FAVORITE series right now! She'll be playing Lola the prostitue turned bounty hunter side kick who wears TIGHT spandex (multi colored) and always gets Stephanie (bounty hunter) into funny tight situations. HAHA THis should be HIGH-LARIOUS!!!!! Can't wait!!!

  22. 22

    A racist bigot hypocrite. Sherri as any prostitute? Other than the one she already is? I hate Sherri Shepherd and her lying fat black ass. She comes off as some Christian missionary on the View and she plays a hooker? Hmm, what would Jesus do Sherri? Next time you espouse your conservative views I hope you choke on your own bile cause you are a cheap ass lying whore both in character and reality. And to think you hate homos too. What a great role model for your "special needs" son. I hope he grows up to realize what a hypocritical bitch you truly are. I hope you and the movie flop!

  23. 23

    I love those books and Im so glad they are finally making a movie but I personally think that Monique would have been a better choice for that part!

  24. 24

    Re: BananaLiz09 – Ahh you know what I totally agree, young Sandra Bullock would be great. I just really can't see a blonde playing Stephanie. Doesn't Stephanie have like mousy brown hair or something? I don't know. I can kind of see Sherri as Lula. I'm going to see this movie no matter what, even if it does stink I'll still have my books. I'm excited to see who they get to play RANGER!!

  25. 25

    eEEEEEEEEEEW, what a fat, ugly homophobic bitch

  26. 26

    Not Lola!!!! And Heigl-Nooooo! They are ruining my books. :(

  27. 27

    I imagined Lula a little younger, with a few less miles on her, so this will be a stretch……

  28. 28

    Not Lula!!!! And Heigl-Nooooo! They are ruining my books. :(

  29. 29

    OMG…I've read the Stephanie Plum series and I would ALWAYS imagine Lula as Sherri. To actually cast her in the movie is amazing! Not too sure about KH as the lead tho…..I was imagining someone like Sandra Bullock….

  30. 30

    Foor you to understand would require you to read a book, so that's not gonna happen. Sherri Shepard as Lula???? Major Suckage….Monique is the perfect Lula…Sheri doesn't have the attitude need to make Lula real.

  31. 31

    The books are awesome but I don't agree with ANY of the cast that they have. I have a feeling this will ruin the book.
    I think Kate Hudson would be an awesome Stephanie Plum.. Way better than Katherine. Also, Dwayne Johnson would be a good Ranger, Josh Hartnett as Morrelli. I can picture Betty White as Grandma Mazur. Even though she's not my favourite, Queen Latifa would be a better Lula.

  32. 32

    Re: Duchess77 – Anyone else think Joe Pesci would make an awesome Vinnie?

  33. 33

    She will be a scream as Lula - not sure about Ms K - but dude don't dis what you haven't read - if done right there are 14 books or so…

  34. 34

    Nooooo! They're going to ruin it! Heigl and Shepard are not Stephanie and Lula. Why don't they get actress with talent.

  35. 35

    Easy role - she'll be playing HERSELF!! Oh, and I hope her son grows up to be a big 'ole tranny who wears lots of dresses, IN HER HOUSE!!! SS on The View: "I personally would not let my son wear a dress in MY house."

  36. 36

    She is a fat, frumpy, ugly, dumpy black piglet from hell. GAG!

  37. 37

    I think Sherri would be great as Lula but I'm so bummed that Heigl is Stephanie. She might could play Stephanies arch enemy Joyce but Sandra Bullock would be good as Stephanie.

  38. 38

    Sherri will be great for Lula! especially when she's trying to kick down doors in her spiked heels. But seriously, Perez, could you research the stuff you're posting instead of taking verbatim what Variety wrote and wrote incorrectly? Lula is a FORMER prostitute who starts out as a file clerk and through the 16 books works her way up to being an assistant bounty hunter.

  39. 39

    Re: blahblah227 – Dwayne Johnson really would have made a great Ranger.

  40. 40

    I agree with everyone who says the casting for this sucks. Heigl's bad enough. But Sherri won't cut it as Lula. I see Mo'Nique in that role.

  41. rayna says – reply to this


    Re: mattyesmateo – Where in the world did you get the impression sherri is conservative? She was a fool for obama big-time!! She ranted nonsense of course, like the dupes the lib-tards are. You think all Christians are conservative?

  42. 42

    OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been a huge fan of the books for years, and I can't wait for the movie to come out!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. 43


    I think she will do Lula justice….will be interesting to see Katherine, I never pictured her, but I think she'll be good…

    The real question is….WHO WILL PLAY RANGER?!?!

  44. 44

    UGH! Sherrie Shepard and Katherine Heigl are horrible choices for these roles. I think I'll just stick to reading the books and skip the movie.

  45. 45

    She would seriously be awesome in the role of Lulu! Excellent casting! Looking forward to the movie cause I absolutely love the books!

  46. 46

    I am so disappointed that Katherine Heigl is playing this role. They had a chance to make something really great out of these books and they have now pissed it away. I am just not a Heigl fan and I definitely do NOT see her as Stephanie Plum.

  47. 47

    Nahhh, I really cant see her playing Lula. In my mind I pictured someone like Queen Latifah. But hey, whatever, if the casting people want the movie to suck, not my problem.

  48. 48

    Dear GOD the casting is awful. I don't mind Sherri as much BUT katherine Heigl NO NO NO!!!! I know Janet Evanovich wanted Sandra Bullock to play Stephanie and that's who I always pictured. Crazy stuff and although I love the books, I won't go see the movie

  49. 49

    It has to be a movie if this overflowing glacier of a woman thinks ANYTHING would pay to sleep with her…..I really understand why her husband cheated seeing that she is a lying, deplorable heifer who really can do no better!! Karma is a real b*tch

  50. 50

    This is how the cast should have gone:

    Stephanie Plum- Sandra Bullock
    Lula- Queen Latifah
    Morelli- Benjamin Bratt
    Vinnie- Joe Pesci
    Grandma Mazur- Betty White
    Ranger- Adam Rodriquez

    I always pictured these people when reading the books… just my thoughts anyway.

  51. 51

    i have read all the Stephanie Plum books and i think Sherri will be awesome as Lula…she needs to be a lil bigger tho. maybe they'll make her gain weight.

  52. 52

    She is who I would have cast as that role!!!! I LOVE the book, the entire 15 books in the series to date!!!! I wish Jeffrey Dean Morgan would play Joe and Dwayne Johnson would play Ranger!!!! I LOVE THESE BOOK, DON'T RUIN THEM WITH A CRAPPY MOVIE!!!!

  53. 53

    Well, if this news of her and Heigl being cast is true then it has just ruined a perfectly great set of books for me. Neither of them should be in this project.

  54. 54

    Re: Aunt LuAnn – I always saw Sandra playing Stephanie too. She would make it fantastic. But I think Katherine will do ok…..but enough about the female roles….they TOTALLY FUCKED UP the roles of Morelli and Ranger….if the imdb page is true….Jason O'Mara to play Morelli and Daniel Sunjata as Ranger…..I'm not seeing this movie til ALL these books have been written, or these guys will fuck up the images for the characters I have in my mind. Someone slap the person that chose these people!

  55. 55

    I think Sherri is going to be great. I also like Jason Omara. He was really good in Life on Mars. I may not be too popular with this but I also really like Katherine. The one I think isn't right is Ranger. I think the Dwayne Johnson would have been perfect.
    Can't wait for the movie love the books just finished 16.
