Type Casting

In what can only be described as playing against type (wink, wink), Jamie Lynn Spears made a little cameo this week in the new ABC sitcom (produced by and also guest starring Ashton Kutcher) Miss Guided. In her cameo, JL plays a semi-ditzy, marginally promiscuous high school student who seems one backseat away from teenage pregnancy. This, as we all know, is nothing like the real Jamie Lynn Spears ... who wishes she was "one backseat away from teenage pregnancy" rather than actually being a 16-year old unwed pregs teen. Her older sister, Britney Spears, may be Mrs. Oh My God, That Britney's Shameless but it turns out that JL is little Miss Guided. Here are a few screencaps from JL's cameo on the show this week:


As much as all things Ashton Kutcher tend to irritate me on every level imaginable, I have to admit that I kinda like this show. Granted, I've only seen the one ep (this one which features JL Spears -- which seems to be a bit of coup considering JL's current state of infamy) but I like what I see thus far. Judy Greer, the show's main character, is really a funny actress so the show seems to have merit. I'm not really fond of the typical throw-away jokes that pepper the writing but there were enough yuks in this ep to keep me entertained. I might have to watch more of this show to see if it can keep me entertained. If you missed watching this episode, entitled Hot Sub, when it aired this past Thursday night, you can watch the entire episode online at ABC.com. [Source]
