Ashlee Simpson-Wentz: Melrose Place Has Good Drama

by at . Comments

While a few critics have questioned the casting of Ashlee Simpson-Wentz on the new Melrose Place, Jessica's sister is ignoring their take.

She's just excited for the show to premiere this fall.

"I play the girl that's straight-off-the-bus. It's fun," Ashlee told MTV News of her character, Violet Foster.  "It's exciting because we don't get to see the next episode.  We don't get to read the scripts until we're actually about to shoot it, and everyone is dying to know what's going to happen to their characters, so it's fun.  It'll be exciting to play that arc... It's got good drama."

The rebooted Melrose Place also stars Katie Cassidy, Colin Egglesfield, Stephanie Jacobsen, Jessica Lucas, Michael Rady, and Shaun Sipos. 

Debuting in Septemnber, it's helmed by Smallville producers Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer.
