Miley Cyrus as Carrie Bradshaw Is a Terrible Idea

miley cyrusIf you haven't heard already, I'm sorry that I'm the one that has to break the news to you: The CW has green-lit the Carrie Diaries, a prequel series of sorts that will follow Sex and the City characters Carrie Bradshaw and Samantha Jones as they figure out New York City in their late teens, early 20s. I'm not sure who's excited about this idea, I mean, I thought Sex and the City II: The Girls' Racist Romp Through the Middle East was enough to make everyone realize that Carrie and gang should never again be resurrected, but apparently, I'm the only one who drew that conclusion.

Now, adding some extra stank on this pile of poo is Miley Cyrus, who admitted that she'd love to play Carrie in the Carrie Diaries and thinks it'd be "very cool." Oh. No.


She hasn't signed anything yet, but I just, I don't think Miley is a dynamic actress. I think she can sing and yeah, "Party in the U.S.A." is an all American classic, but I cannot for the life of me see her acting in anything remotely adult. Yes, she's hammered it in our heads that she's mature now (topless photos in Vanity Fair! boyfriends! short hair! jokes about how much weed she smokes!), but I just don't buy it.

Clearly I'm not a fan of the show idea in the first place, but if they're going to go through with it, might as well give it a fighting chance. Miley's Carrie would be way too ... bubbly. Even though she had a little cameo in SATC II, I don't think she'd be able to portray the depths of Carrie's character. That is to say, Miley is very one note and Carrie isn't. Plus, you know she'd wanna sing in like every other episode and we just can't have that.

CW execs should think long and hard about who they cast for the lead role, and I like the rumors that Emma Roberts is in the running. Now she's a Carrie. Pretty, smart, a little mysterious and artistic ... I can see it. All I see when I look at Miley is the weed giggles and munchies, so really anyone would be an improvement.

Are you curious about the Carrie Diaries? Do you think Miley Cyrus would be a good choice for the role?
