We’ve been getting e-mails about the latest Jessica Simpson rumor about every 10 minutes, so we thought we’d get the official word from 20th Century Fox. And guess what, a big surprise here, it’s NOT true! The rumor got started at Dark Horizons which last week reported…
“What took me off guard as how our paper goes on to say how Jessica is possibly auditioning for a role as a superhero called Dazzler. The article goes on to say that producers where impressed with a small audition tape that the singer-actress sent them upon request, and will possibly give her a small role in the 3rd “X-Men” movie as a lounge-singer, to introduce the character of Dazzler, in hopes to extend the character’s role in future films.
Then, The Irish Examiner made it sound like they talked to a “source” regarding the matter, without making reference to the DH story…
Singing beauty Jessica Simpson has landed a role in the third X-Men movie, just weeks after bagging a part in The Dukes of Hazzard. The Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica singer has proved to be a huge hit with producers and will play a mutant superhero called Dazzler alongside Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. A source says: “Jessica sent an audition tape and producers were impressed. “They will possibly give her a small role in X-Men 3 as a lounge-singer to introduce the character of Dazzler.”
20th Century Fox tells Superhero Hype! that there isn’t even a script yet for the third film and that NO ONE has been cast yet.
