Exclusive: Miley Cyrus Flees Lifetime/History Bonnie & Clyde Miniseries

Miley Cyrus Bonnie & ClydeThis is pretty uncool: Miley Cyrus is no longer in the running to play the female lead in Bonnie & Clyde, a four-hour miniseries in development for cable siblings History and Lifetime, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Cyrus had been in negotiations to play Bonnie in the project, which is being shepherded by Smash exec producers, Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.

It’s not clear what led to the breakdown in talks.

Later this month, Cyrus kicks off a multi-episode arc as a love interest for Angus T. Jones’ Jake on CBS’ Two and a Half Men.

    I didn’t even know she was being considered.

    Two words. Dianna. Agron. Would love to see her in this.

  4. shadester says:

    what the hell happened to her hair?

  5. yall says:

    She can’t act, so YAYYYY!

  6. Hojana says:

    No Michael Ausiello this is very cool. Now they can actually bring on someone who can act.

  7. zaza says:

    P.S. Her hair is not attractive. I’m all for an adventurous and daring ‘do, as long as it’s also flattering.

  8. Whatever says:

    Maybe they want someone who can act…

  9. JAson says:

    Did she do the Something About Mary thing to her hair?

  10. Dennis says:

    Good. The part should go to someone who can act.

  11. Laura says:

    Maybe she should try for Clyde instead?

  12. Curly Girly says:

    Seriously??? You say that as if that’s a bad thing, Michael. Tsk. Tsk. I thought better of you….

  13. KC says:

    My girls watched Hannah Montana…and it wasn’t bad. Miley was good, but the guy who played her brother and Emily Osment had the talent.
    She just can’t pull off bad a@@. This new “look” is ridiculous as well. And too further nit pik…but is she capable of closing her lips?

  14. Signed.....Dillinger says:

    Miley….playing Bonnie…with that hairdo……WOULD be a Criminal Offense.

  15. Adriana says:

    I loved Miley but she has been changing a lot and now I think she makes a fool out of herself and that new hair cut has nothing to do with her it looks HORRIBLE
