07.31.07 by REELZ
Nikki Blonsky, the zaftig star of Hairspray, has chosen her first post-Tracy-Turnblad role. Blonsky will join Cuba Gooding Jr., Ally Sheedy, Colin Quinn, and Spencer Breslin in Harold, a comedy about a prematurely aging highschooler, written and directed by SNL writer T. Sean Shannon. In it, Blonsky will play Harold's nerdy best friend Rhonda.
In other news, Ryan Reynolds (Van Wilder, Smokin' Aces) is getting set to star in the upcoming Sandra Bullock romantic comedy, The Proposal. In it, Bullock will play a woman who has a greencard marriage to her assistant (Reynolds) to keep from being deported to Canada. Irony of ironies: Reyolds is actually Canadian.
