McPhee will appear in the film alongside Scary Movie actress Anna Faris, who according to Entertainment Weekly, will play the role of a Playboy bunny who gets evicted from Hugh Hefner's mansion. She then finds herself teaching a group of sorority girls at a nearby college how to be cool and hip, with McPhee reportedly playing the role of one of the sorority girls.
The 22-year-old first began gushing about wanting to become a big screen actress immediately after losing last year's Idol title to Taylor Hicks, and she received her first real chance at attaining that goal in early June when she reportedly signed on to star in the dark romantic comedy The Last Caller. McPhee will reportedly play a self-obsessed woman in-search of love and the hope of finding herself in the "coming-of-age" independent film.
The Last Caller is reportedly scheduled to begin filming in and around New York in the fall, with Sony "aiming for a late summer start date" to begin shooting the Happy Madison production, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Last August it was rumored that McPhee was being considered for a film version of Wonder Woman, but she discredited those reports shortly thereafter, claiming the prospects for a Wonder Woman movie weren't very good.
