ashleesimpsonwentz-030909Singer/Actress Ashlee Simpson-Wentz will star on The CW’s Melrose Place update, returning to network television seven years after her role on The WB’s 7th Heaven.  Simpson-Wentz will play Melrose Place’s newest resident, Violet, a bright-eyed but shrewd small-town girl and recent L.A. transplant who has come to town with a secret.  THR reports that the character will draw parallels to the original series’ Sandy Harling (Amy Locane).

Simposon-Wentz joins the previously announced cast of Michael Rady and Katie Cassidy (see related story).
