EXCLUSIVE: Heather Locklear has just booked a fun role in Scary Movie 5. She’ll play the mother of a young dancer (Ashley Tisdale), in a role that is more than inspired by the nightmare mom Barbara Hershey played in Black Swan. In fact, they’ve also booked Molly Shannon to play the Winona Ryder character. Malcolm Lee is directing and Scary Movie vet David Zucker co-wrote the script and is producing. Zucker wrote and directed the third and fourth installments of Scary Movie, which were the funniest.
Locklear is right now doing an arc on TV Land’s Hot In Cleveland. She plays the PR executive for the city of Cleveland who hires Melanie (Valerie Bertinelli). Locklear’s been out of the mix awhile but it’s good to see her back. She’s repped by Gersh and Brillstein. Shannon’s repped by Gersh and Framework.
