You may have caught the buzz surrounding Hilary Duff‘s supposed upcoming television acting gig. The thing is, she has just been replaced. What a meaty role it would have been for her, too. The former Lizzie McGuire star was gearing up to portray Bonnie in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, a History Channel miniseries. Now the female lead for the project is True Blood actress, Lindsay Pulsipher, instead.
The Salt Lake City native is new to Season 3 of HBO’s sultry paranormal drama, True Blood, and her character is Crystal Norris. The blue-eyed starlet enjoyed a long recurring stretch on the A&E series, The Beast.
History is shaping up to be a lucky influence in the actress’s life. Not only will she play in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde, but THR reports Pulsipher is working »

Cypress Moon Studios announced on Monday that True Blood star Lindsey Pulsipher will replace Hillary Duff in the upcoming Bonny And Clyde feature.
Hillary Duff is allegedly expecting a child and so in the heat of her pregnancy will be dropping out of the film as the studios cannot reschedule shooting arrangements. ‘Due to our obligations with investors and international buyers, it is imperative that we stick to our current schedule,’ Said Tonya S. Holly producer at Cypress Moon Studios ‘Therefore we are forced to explore other options for the two lead roles. Unfortunately this happens all the time in the world of filmmaking.’
Thankfully it looks as if there won’t be any bad blood between Duff and Pulsipher and the feature will continue to abide by the initial scheduling, but who will replace Kevin Zegers now that he has dropped the role of Clyde Barrow?

Clyde has found his new partner in crime. True Blood co-star Lindsay Pulsipher, who plays were-panther Crystal Norris Stackhouse on HBO.s hit vampire soap opera, has been tapped to star as Bonnie Parker in writer-director Tonya S. Holly.s The Story if Bonnie and Clyde, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The actress currently is putting the finishing touches on The Hatfields and McCoys, a mini-series she.s filming with Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton for the History Channel.

As for Bonnie, Pulsipher replaces Hilary Duff, who was released from the production . and paid handsomely for her troubles . after her pregnancy interfered with the production.s tightening schedule. So Holly cast another pretty blonde opposite Kevin Zegers (Gossip Girl, The Jane Austen Book Club), who has been cast as Clyde in »
Cypress Moon Studios producer Tonya S. Holly – who will be writing and directing the picture – had these comments:
“We are thrilled to welcome Lindsay Pulsipher as Bonnie Parker in The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role,” says producer Tonya S. Holly of Cypress Moon Productions in a statement. “This is a gripping story about two of the most legendary fugitives in history.”
And they would like to stress that it has absolutely nothing to do with Duff’s recent announcement that she and hockey player husband Mike Comrie are expecting their first child. Scheduling conflicts have gotten in the way.
This may be yet one more completely unnecessary remake of a pretty much perfect film, »

Despite protests from some cinephiles, a new Bonnie and Clyde movie is on its way. So far, though, the road has been bumpy. Hilary Duff and Kevin Zegers were initially set to play Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the two lovebird bank robbers who rose to fame during the Great Depression. However, scheduling conflicts will prevent Duff and Zegers from assuming the roles. So writer/director Tonya S. Holly must look elsewhere to fill out the cast in time to shoot The Story of Bonnie and Clyde later this year in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Missouri. Holly and producer Tom Rogers have found their new Bonnie, at least, in Lindsay Pulsipher (True Blood). Because, as Holly told THR, "Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role." Undoubtedly. Pulsipher is currently filming the History Channel miniseries The Hatfields and the McCoys. The actress has two independent features in the »

Lindsay Pulsipher is ready for a life of crime.
The "True Blood" star is set to die young and leave a good-looking (albeit bullet-ridden) corpse as she joins "The Story of Bonnie and Clyde," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Pulsipher will be playing the better half of the criminal duo, Bonnie Parker, a role to which Hilary Duff was originally attached. Meanwhile, the manhunt is once again on for someone to play Clyde Barrow now that Kevin Zegers ("Gossip Girl") has dropped out due to scheduling issues.
Bonnie and Clyde's story was previously told in director Arthur Penn's now-classic 1967 drama, "Bonnie and Clyde," which starred Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty in the title roles. Theirs are some pretty big shoes to fill (or guns to load, as it were), so much that not too many other (serious, anyway) cinematic takes on the legend of the doomed bank robberies have since been attempted. »
