Selena Gomez To Star In ’13 Reasons Why,’ God Why?

Tuesday, February 8 by

Bieber-stealer Selena Gomez is the star of a TV show no grown man can ever admit to watching, unless he wants to risk being suspected as a pedophile. Best known for “Wizards of Waverly Place” and the cleverly titled “Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie,” Gomez will be leaving Waverly Place for a place that’s a little less Waverly-y.

Universal has picked up the bestselling book 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, as a vehicle for Gomez. Writer Jennifer O’Kieffe will adapt the book about a girl who committed suicide, then gives cassette tapes to 13 different girls explaining their role in her death. It’s a guilt trip from beyond the grave. If that were me, I’d start by recording something serious about getting cyber-bullied, the break into ghost noises and loud farts. And that, Universal Pictures, is why you should hire me to do the punch-up draft. (Deadline)

    This article title is dumb, and you guys sound like haters. But all in all Disney best actress right now is Selena, and although many ppl wont like the fact that a Disney girl got this role. The decision has been made, and if you seen on Jay Asher blog he known Selena for quite some time and love her personally. I’m excited to see if she does this amazing book justice.
