Aimee Teegarden Cast In The CW's 'Hunger Games' Inspired 'The Selection'

This time around, the ‘Friday Night Lights’ star will find herself in the middle of the games.

Aimee Teegarden held her own against an army of Texan footballers — now let’s see how well can fare in hand-to-hand combat! TVLine reports that Friday Night Lights‘ own Julie Taylor has snagged the lead role in The CW’s The Selection, which Hunger Games fans will definitely want to DVR if it gets picked up for the fall. Set 300 years in the future, the show tells the story of a poor girl (Aimee) who is selected to compete to become the “queen” of a war-torn country. (Sound familiar… ish?)

Of course, this won’t be the first time we’ve seen Aimee grace The CW. 90210 fans should remember her less-than-fondly as Rhonda, the crazy chick who tried to steal Ethan (Dustin Milligan) away from Annie (Shenae Grimes) after she was involved in a car crash during the show’s first season.

(Seriously, what’s up with Aimee’s characters always getting into car accidents?)
