Before she was able to perform in the role that would sure take her from teen-queen to actress with a capital A, fate intervened: Hilary Duff announced she was pregnant.
And after much speculation, The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed Duff's replacement: Lindsay Pulsipher.
You might recognize the blonde from season three of "True Blood" where she played Crystal Norris or the History Channel miniseries "The Hatfields and McCoys" with Kevin Costner and Bill Paxton, (probably not the latter).
“We are thrilled to welcome Lindsay Pulsipher as Bonnie Parker in 'The Story of Bonnie and Clyde.' Lindsay will undoubtedly bring many layers to this critical role,” says producer Tonya S. Holly of Cypress Moon Productions. “This is a gripping story about two of the most legendary fugitives in history."
They aim to begin production later this year, though, Clyde is still MIA.
What do you think of this switch?
CORRECTION: Initially, this article had said that Pulsipher starred in the 10th season of "True Blood," but in fact it was the third.
