Singer and actress Ashlee Simpson is the latest star said to be headed to the newly renovated "Melrose Place" according to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello.

Ashlee will reportedly play a fresh faced small-town girl named Violet, who has a dark "calculating, shrewd sex kitten within," according to the mag – which bears a striking resemblance to the show's original good-girl-gone-bad, Sydney, played by Laura Leighton.

As for "Melrose's" most beloved star, Heather Locklear, the actress is reportedly considering a return. "Both sides are talking," a source told the mag. "It's looking good."

The former "7th Heaven" star – and possibly Locklear – will join Katie Cassidy and Michael Rady, who have already been cast in the CW show, which is slated to debut in the fall.
