Chelsea Brady's regular table at the Brady Pub hasn't even been bussed yet, and already Rachel Melvin has been tapped for a high-profile new gig. The two-time Daytime Emmy nominee for "Days of our Lives" has been cast on the third season of "Heroes."
Rachel will play "Annie," a college roommate of Hayden Panettiere's Claire. (Fans will note that Claire is the indestructible cheerleader of the "Heroes" bunch, which automatically gives her a leg up on the inevitable roomie vs. roomie wars of attrition that make the freshman-year experience so memorable.)
And according to The Hollywood Reporter, Annie "will share sleeping quarters (and maybe more) with Claire." "Maybe more"! That probably isn't code for "an iPod charger."
Do you think Rachel's character will end up with a superhero ability? What should it be?
