Wizard of Waverly Place star Selena Gomez is a talented singer and actress, and this Friday fans can check her out as “Beezus Quimby” in the family film Ramona and Beezus. Gomez may seem like the perfect teen role model (at least when compared to contemporaries like Miley Cyrus), but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t done mischievous things in her past. But of course, when you’re talking mischievous with Gomez, it’s really not bad at all. Just don’t let Gomez snatch your magic marker! (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR BELOW TO HEAR SELENA GOMEZ)

SHARPAY'S FABULOUS ADVENTURE - Ashley Tisdale stars as Sharpay Evans on Disney Channel's original movie "Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure." (DISNEY CHANNEL/BOB D'AMICO)
Ashley Tisdale has already begun production on the spin-off of the successful High School Musical movies. Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure will feature Tisdale as, of course, Sharpay Evans, the role she made popular in High School Musical.
The Adventure begins after a New York casting director spots Sharpay performing with her dog Boi at a local charity gala. He then offers to arrange an audition for a new Broadway musical. Off she goes to the Big Apple only to learn the audition was for Boi, but that doesn’t prevent Shapay from moving forward with her plan to conquer Broadway.
The movie, directed by Michael Lembeck (Tooth Fairy) will offer up four original songs (I’m Gonna Shine, My Boy and Me, The Rest of My Life, New York’s Best Kept Secret). Tisdale is actually co-executive producing the project, which will debut on 2011 on Disney Channel.
Hannah Montana is coming to an end.
The Disney Channel series starring Miley Cyrus is expected to wrap up a four season run next year, according to the 16-year-old’s dad and co-star, Billy Ray Cyrus.
In an interview for Access Hollywood and “The Billy Bush Show,” Cyrus said the cast, which just wrapped up shooting season 3, will carry on for one more run of shows at Miley’s request.
“Quite frankly, I give a lot of credit to Miley for taking it to another year,” Cyrus said. “She didn’t want it to just end with whatever was the last episode we did. She wanted it to build to where there’s a moral to the story, to where it doesn’t just end and go away and that’s it. She wanted there to be an official ending to ‘Hannah Montana.’”
Cyrus said they will film the final 11 half-hour long episodes and a one-hour long season finale, all expected to screen in 2010.
“We’ll start (shooting) season 4 sometime around the end of January,” Billy Ray said. “We have to be done by the first week of June in the summer of next year.”
But Cyrus did note, however, that things could change.
“Anything is possible in Hollywood,” he laughed.
