Introducing the luckiest girl in Hollywood.

If you're a young actress in Tinsel Town, there was only one pilot you were desperately vying to get cast in this season: The Carrie Diaries.

The prequel to the Sex and The City franchise is all the buzz in La La Land, set to take a prime spot in the CW lineup next fall with Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage blazing the trail. One big question has been hanging in the air for MONTHS: who would get the extreme fortune of stepping into the Jimmy Choos of a young Carrie Bradshaw? We just got our answer! It's….

AnnaSophia Robb, best known for her roles in Soul Surfer and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, has landed the coveted role as New York's "it" girl during the 1980s, way before she met Mr. Big and is just starting to learn the intricacies of love, sex and friendship!

A plum part for a rather unknown actress. But maybe that's a good thing, getting someone who isn't as seasoned? She has no reputation to compete with, so it gives her a clean slate to establish herself. Still, the shadow of Sarah Jessica Parker has to be a dark place to start in!

Are U happy with this choice? Think she has what it takes to fill Bradshaw's shoes?

  2. 2

    'Jimmy choo'??? Right!!! Who writes these ignorant entries??? Ever watched SATC??? Manolos NOT Jimmy Choos!!!!!!

    Way too pretty to be a young SJP
    Maybe if the break her nose and place her on horse harmones
    if will help

    She seems more like a Charlotte than a Carrie, especially if you saw her in Soul Surfer. But I'm still ridiculously excited to watch The Carrie Diaries!



  5. 5

    I definitely think she's really talented so I'm looking forward to seeing this!



  6. 6

    She looks more like Samantha played by Kim Cattrall.

    Re: yourmom11 – You're right. Physically, she does look more like a Samantha than a Carrie. But she still seems a lot better than some of the other choices they kicked around for Carrie Bradshaw.

    I still think they should let SJP and the ladies do one more film before they make a prequel show. I also am still weary about this show being on the CW. SATC was not meant to be PG and I know that's what we will be getting.

    this show is up for early cancellation if it's going on the CW… SATC is an adult TV show, juat like Melrose Place was. If it's going on a kids network, I don't see it lasting long.

    Sarah Jessica Parker has a BIG NOSE……this girl does not have a BIG NOSE like SJP. So, I ain't buy'n it !



  12. 12

    SJP also had a BIG UGLY MOLE…..this girl does not. I ain't buy'n it !

    Re: MR Pete – too funny !

    I think she has the acting ability to do it…but she's not quirky like SJP, especially not look wise. She has an absolutely stunning face, really gorgeous girl…whereas SJP is, in my opinion, attractive but more because of her style.
