As The Age notes:
Web video star Jessica Rose – better recognised by her YouTube alias Lonelygirl15 – will play a role in an upcoming film starring Lindsay Lohan. The film – I Know Who Killed Me – has reportedly been in production since late last year, and filming is scheduled to wrap up this month. A number of photos of Rose and Lohan on the set of the film have cropped up on celebrity gossip websites. It is a reassuring sign for budding filmmakers and actors seeking to use video-sharing sites such as YouTube as a launch pad for Hollywood success.
While not a huge shock, Lee’s move to the cinema will no doubt further fuel the millions of YouTubers hoping that their webcam home movies can be the beginning of a Hollywood career!
