Kellie Pickler To Make Acting Debut on 90201

Congrats to Kellie Pickler! She’s landed a role on the Season Premiere of 90210. Via TV Line.

Kellie Pickler is set to make her acting debut on 90210 this fall, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The American Idol alum will play Sally, the country-singing cousin of local cowboy Austin (Justin Deeley).

Pickler is not the sole singer appearing on the new season of 90210, debuting Sept. 13. As TVLine previously reported, Brandy has been tapped for a major Season 4 arc.

I’m surprised it’s taken Kellie this long to make her debut!  Should be a hoot.

    Get that promo Kellie! I can’t say I watch the show but I’ll for sure check out Kellie’s part of it. I don’t really trust the show writers to write a good character for her but hopefully they’ll integrate the song well into the storyline and not try too hard to paint Kellie as a hick or anything.

    Go Kellie! Go Brandy!

    eta, yeah I can’t stand that kind of stuff, but my daughter lurvs it. :roll:

    Kellie has said she has been approached to have several reality tv shows, etc. but wasn’t interested. Doesnt pay to put all your eggs in one basket in the music industry these days. Good for her! Could help her new album debut numbers too. She should be on a comedy series.

    I don’t watch 90210, but I’m thrilled for Kellie. She will always be one of my favorites to come out of AI.

    I think this is a very good move for Kellie. She sparkles – and not just with singing. I wish her the best.

    She should be on a comedy series

    Agreed. She is a natural at comedy.

    Go Kellie, might even tune in to see her.

    Idol really lucked out with getting Kellie cast for the show. She seems a natural for the show and should do well.
