Aly Michalka joins recurring cast for CW’s iZombie
Easy A supporting star Aly Michalka will play the lead’s BFF in iZombie…
With lots of DC comics' superhero characters making it to the small screen of late, it’s easy to forget that iZombie, a new TV series under development at CW, is based on a comic too.
The new series is inspired by the 2010-2012 DC comic of the same name, which saw the state of Oregon over-run with vampires, apocalyptic-sized fights and – you guessed it – zombies.
There’s been a bit of a casting change-up since the pilot got a full season order, with Aly Michalka stepping in to replace Alexandra Krosney as Peyton, best friend to protagonist, and brain eater, Liv (Rose McIver).
Michalka is probably best known as Rhiannon from Easy A, but has also appeared in CSI: NY, Two And A Half Men and, ahem, Grown Ups 2.
The show will have a crime procedural tone, following the life of Liv as she works in a coroner’s office solving murders alongside the police, whilst eating brains on the side to try and satisfy her spreading zombie genes. Colour us intrigued. More news as we hear it.
