Trust me when I say this, but I have spent may a moment feeling guilty — feeling guilty about thoughts that were brought on by watching episodes of the “Gilmore Girls”. It had something to do with the curiously underage look possessed by Alexis Bledel. Come to find out that the 26 year old Bledel is a few years older than I, and let’s just say the guilt was gone. The thoughts? Not so much.
Variety is reporting today that Bledel has signed on to star in Fox Atomic’s college comedy Ticket to Ride, which is being directed by Vicky Jenson (Shrek, Shark Tale). Bledel will play Ryden Malby, a college grad who is forced to move back into her childhood home with her eccentric family while she searches for a job, a good man and some direction.
The project is set to begin shooting sometime next month.
While Bledel is most widely known for her work on the aforementioned “Gilmore Girls”, she has also appeared in Sin City and the painfully charming The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
