Signed to star in upcoming comedy 'Stay Cool', the star of 'A Cinderella Story' is set to play a sexy high school senior who flirts with a successful author.
Credited as a successful young actress/singer, Hilary Duff was last seen burning up the big screen by dancing seductively with a scorpion in her pants in the limited release of dark political satire film "War, Inc.". Still, before her fans can forget her alluring performance in that movie, she has taken yet another seducing movie role in "Stay Cool".
For the new comedy film by Michael and Mark Polish, the 20-year-old has been signed to play Shasta O'Neil, a sexy high school senior who flirts with the main character and invites him to her prom night party. With her joining the cast, it means that the former "Lizzie McGuire" star will team up with Winona Ryder, Mark Polish, Sean Astin, Chevy Chase and Jon Cryer for the Prohibition Pictures' flick.
"Stay Cool" centers its story on a successful author who returns to his hometown to give a commencement address to graduating high school students and finds himself forced to confront his unrequited high school crush. The movie is scheduled to start shooting in July in Santa Clarita, California using the script written by the Polish brothers.
