ACTOR ON-THE-RISE: Jessica Parker Kennedy


Discovering new talent in a Disney movie isn't usually possible, but after renting Another Cinderella Movie--to see if Selena Gomez was worth all the hype she's been getting--I noticed someone else. No, it wasn't the semi-attractive, 26-year-old Andrew Seeley faking 17. It was actually newcomer Jessica Parker Kennedy. She played Gomez's best friend and number one supporter. But unlike other pals (i.e. Vanessa Hudgens' friends in High School Musical), she didn't fade into the background. She had a certain spark of spunk and sass that made me want to see her in something a little less...Disney.


Imagine my surprise when I tune into the second episode of "Smallville" this season and see a punked out version of Kennedy raising hell. It wasn't exactly what I was expecting, but as long as she's getting casting calls, I could really care less. Her next project is a horror film called Bad Meat, which she'll star in alongside Dave Franco, another fresh face who unfortunately suffered his first Hollywood blow when his FOX series "Do Not Disturb" was canceled this week. Here's hoping they both get a big break soon.

  1. I totally agree about Kennedy. As I was watching the movie I found her character far more interesting and kind of wished the story was centered around her instead.
