Just days after all the major entertainment news vehicles reported Hilary Duff had been approached for the pivotal role of Annie in next season's CW update of 90210, comes word that Shenae Grimes of Degrassi: The Next Generation fame will play the teen soap's theater-loving central character. Although the soap and its struggling network The CW, definitely could have benefitted from The Duffster's tween/teen icon status, I love Shenae as Degrassi's troubled Darcy and her resemblance to Lori Loughlin (who has been cast as Annie's mom Celia) is uncanny. She should be a great fit.
