Sons of Anarchy Scoop: Former Disney Queen Ashley Tisdale Cast as a 'Desirable Escort'

Former High School Musical drama queen Ashley Tisdale has graduated to her most adult role to date, scoring a multi-episode arc on the upcoming fifth season of Sons of Anarchy, TVLine has learned.

The ex-Hellcats star will play Emma Jean, a high-priced desirable escort who complicates the club’s life in at least two episodes.

As TVLine previously reported, SOA‘s Season 5 guest star roster also boasts Jimmy Smits and Lost‘s Harold Perrineau.

    This is a joke right? we’re being punk’d? UGH

  6. Jen says:

    That’s an intersting choice! I’m not a fan of her Disney movies, but I like her…. She’s not a Miley Cyrus or else… The girl can act and I think she’ll do well

  7. Ashlynn says:

    Nope..not replacing Ima.. Kristen Renton is on set today!!

    Some people can be so atrocious. Just because she’s from Disney and you don’t like her past projects doesn’t mean she doesn’t have talent. Ashley Tisdale has proven herself as a capable actress. I’m happy for her. It’s good to see her moving on to more challenging and adult roles now.

  9. Mía says:

    There is no shortage of young blonde actresses in Hollywood. Can’t they find one whose mere appearance won’t trigger high school musical ptsd?

  10. Shari says:

    I’m not a fan, but who knows, after this her career might explode into mature roles and she might kick some ass. Then maybe we can take these Disney stars a little more seriously. Afterall they’ve given up their youth to entertain our children.

  11. gigi says:

    Good for Ashley. She is trying something different and unexpected! She is a good actress and now she can show it!

  12. A.Rae says:

    I suspect that Ashley will do just fine, and agree that she has the chops to handle this. Would Kurt have cast her if he didn’t think she could?

  13. Megan says:

    Helps that she’s a big fan of the show.

  14. Juan says:

    I think she is great and talented, I’m happy she is takin more mature roles, was sad web her pilot wasn’t picked up

  15. Carmen says:

    LOL WHAT. I was expecting something epic like Stepehen King in season 3 or Hasselhoff in season 4, but not freaking Ashley Tisdale. Smh @ the casting people on this one….

  16. bob says:

    Really hope Zac Efron is comming too, as a biker!!!!

  17. ollie says:

    i ll admit i liked her on raising hope so who knows

  18. Eric says:

    Sutter always find a way to make actors look good and i’m sure that Ashley will be good in that will be nice to see that bad side of her as an escort…humm, Lyla, Tara, Ima, Gemma and add to that many gorgeous womens

  19. Shaun says:

    I don’t see her as ”desirable” at all.

  20. Kimberly says:

    No Ima aka Kristen Renton is not going any where she will be a regular on the show for a while from what Kurt said in one of his blogs he’s a big fan of hers as am I. So don’t worry Kristen will be here for season 5 and hopefully 6 and on.
