Following the news that the young Emma Roberts will be joining the cast of the upcoming slasher sequel ‘Scream 4’ an addional name has been added to the ever growing cast list. This time in the form of actor Nico Tortorella. So just before your head explodes with just who the hell is playing who in this blood-soaked follow up why not check out this useful little cast breakdown below.
Of course Neve Campbell, David Arquette, and Courtney Cox will all be reprising their roles and they’ll be joined by…
– Emma Roberts will play Jill Kessler, “one of the film’s primary heroines,” a cousin to Neve Campbell’s character in the series. Described as “pretty in an ingenue way. Smart, strong. A little goofy, but she makes it sexy. Full of contradictions, but instantly likeable. Not a mean bone in her body. They’re not close, but Jill is Sidney’s cousin.”
– Hayden Panettiere (below) will play Jill’s best friend, Kirby Reed — a nerdy film geek. Described as “Cute and quirky, was a tomboy until a year ago, now she’s alternative, cool and sexy. Jill’s best friend. She’s a pop culture and horror aficionado;”
– Rory Culkin will play Charlie Walker, a potential love interest for Jill. Here is the character description: “Messy cute. Friends with Jill, Trevor, Kirby, and Olivia. A little cocky, he likens himself to ‘Randy’ from Scream 1 without the nerd part. No such luck, he’s definitely a nerd. May or may not have a crush on Jill. He’d never admit it if he does;”
– Lake Bell will play Duputy Judy Hicks, a police officer who knew Sidney from high school. The casting call described the character as follows: “A police officer, decidedly sexy but a bit off, she knew Sidney from high school. Didn’t make a big enough impression for Sidney to remember her. Likes her boss, Dewey, perhaps a little too much. NAME CAMEOS PREFERRED;”
The ‘Scream 4’ shoot commences this July in Michigan, USA. Now feast your eyes on Miss Panettiere below immediately!
