In his latest casting scoop, Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly revealed that Hilary Duff will play a role in "Ghost Whisperer". The guest-starring slot put her as a "beautiful woman of mystery" who is suspected of having a connection to the death of a man. No more details are released.
Off her guest starring duty, Hilary will headline her own show which is titled "Barely Legal". The NBC comedy which is her first primetime series, sees her as an 18-year-old who passes the notoriously difficult California bar exam and becomes the youngest attorney ever made in the state. It is based on the true story of Kathleen Holtz who passed the exam in 2007. No premiere date has been thrown out.
Meanwhile, "Ghost Whisperer" will return to the screen on January 23 with the episode "Body of Water". When Nikki pays a prolonged visit, Melinda fears that Sam/Jim will never reconnect with his true nature. Meanwhile, Melinda discovers a mysterious and vengeful contingent of ghosts at a local lake, where a financially distressed mortician had been secretly dumping bodies scheduled for cremation.
