Per TVLine’s Nellie Andreeva, the two other actresses alongside previously cast Annie Ilonzeh to play “Charlie’s Angels” are Minka Kelly and Rachael Taylor. Both actresses are nearing deals to join the project.
Kelly is of course best known as Lyla Garrity on “Friday Night Lights” and currently recurs on NBC’s “Parenthood”. Her role is that of Marisa, a fomer U.S. Marine with weapons training and skilled in all forms of hand-to-hand combat. Plus, she’s a neat freak.
Taylor had a supporting role on the first “Transformers” movie, and will begin a recurring arc on “Grey’s Anatomy” next week. She plays Abby, the gorgeous daughter of a notorious Wall Street crook. She’s quite the con artist and skilled in the arts of Krav-Maga, an Israeli self-defense technique.
