|Amber Heard at TIFF 2009|
You've in all likelihood seen her in many Movies already, but this will be the role that makes her a Star. 24 year-old Amber Heard is confirmed almost for NBC's upcoming Playboy series in the role Maureen, who works at the Playboy Club as a new-hire. Heard's Résumé actually is quite impressive having starred in hits like Pineapple Express, Zombieland, Friday Night Lights and North Country as a young Charlize Theron. Her next Film in theatres this Friday, Drive Angry 3-D, has her opposite Nicolas Cage.
The lead role of Carol-Lynne played by Laura Benati whose best known work so far has been on the series Eli Stone. Benati's character is said to be approaching her last days as a Playboy Bunny on the series and her standing is threatened by some of the newer Girls. Carol-Lynne will be involved with a Chicago Mobster.
Naturi Naughton also stars and you might remember her from moderate successes like Lottery Ticket, Fame (2009) and a brief turn on AMC's Mad Men (an inspiration for this new Series) also as a Playboy Bunny.
Many will be thrilled to hear that Step-Up Star Jenna Dewan, Wife of Channing Tatum, will be joining the cast also as confirmed by Deadline. Dewan was just see in this past Summer in Toronto visiting Tatum, while he was filming The Vow opposite Rachel McAdams. She only recently wrapped-up production on Setup which stars Ryan Philippe and Bruce Willis.
