Sadly (or not sadly for some of us) Blake Lively will NOT be playing Carrie Bradshaw in the prequel to Sex and The City.

However, before you Blake fans (out of interest, who IS a fan?  Anyone? Anyone at all?) begin to cry you’ll still see your blonde-haired darling on the big screen.

Blake Lively has announced (and this one IS for certain…promise) that she will be starring in a serious drama, Hick.  Her character will be the drugged addicted mum to a thirteen year old.

While it IS nice to see Gossip Girl stars pick roles which actually expect them to act (and I don’t mean this as an insult…they’re just expected to look good) I really can’t see Blake as a mum.  Drug fucked? Most definitely.  But old enough to have given birth thirteen years ago? Um…not so much.

Thoughts?  Let me know!
