For those who don't know the obvious, the last name Cassidy is a legendary one and Katie is indeed the spawn of David "I Think I Love You" Cassidy. What could there possibly be to be afraid of when it comes to the guy who had feathered hair more perfect than any chick's back in the 1970's creating a daughter who has beneficial genes right from jump? She started off on cheesy television like dad, appearing on "7th Heaven" for a few episodes before becoming the next big scream queen.
I didn't catch Katie first in the WHEN A STRANGER CALLS remake, but rather when she decided to get a little dark and dye her hair for her role on the summer series "Harper's Island." Even with its minor flaws here and there, the show was intriguing enough to capture my attention for 13 Watch-It-Now episodes and I didn't want to believe that this chick was a natural blonde, she looked so good as a brunette. Like, smoldering hot.
But I guess to pay the bills, being blonde pays off because she's back to it with the NIGHTMARE remake. She's not doing the Nancy role (I wish they'd really start defining remakes versus re-imaginings because if you're going to make an entirely different movie and only have the title be the connecting thread, it's annoying as hell. Wait... the cute term is "reboot." WTF ever) but rather the back-up chick (again) and it's a pity because Katie showed on "Harper's Island" that she has the chops to hold onto a role long enough to make herself memorable. With the drama FENCEWALKER with D.B. Sweeney set to come out later this year, as well as an adventure comedy with Leighton Meester called MONTE CARLO, maybe we can see Katie do a little bit more than just flex her scream chords. I know I'd like to see more of her.
Katie Cassidy... hot or not?
