TRAILER: Leighton Meester & Minka Kelly's "The Roommate"

PLOT: College student Sara (Kelly) finds her safety jeopardized after she's assigned to a dorm room with a new roommate, Rebecca (Meester).

CAST: Leighton Meester ("Gossip Girl"), Minka Kelly ("Friday Night Lights"), Alyson Michalka (Easy A and "Hellcats"), Cam Gig andet (Easy A and Twilight), Matt Lanter ("90210"), Billy Zane, Danneel Harris ("One Tree Hill" and Harold and Kumar 2), and Katerina Graham ("Vampire Diaries")

VERDICT: Besides the fact that the cast is like the bottom of the young Hollywood barrel, a majority of which are from the CW, there's also the unfortunate circumstance of Blair Waldorf playing some needy psycho who stalks pretty girls that are nice to her. Meester will never have a better character than the one she has on "Gossip Girl" and seeing her as anything less than a self-important, manipulative socialite is going to be difficult. This won't help. However, I give her props for trying to play against type. As for Kelly, *sigh* I really hate actresses who continuously play "adored" characters—that includes you Alexis Bledel.

RELEASE DATE: February 4
