Remember Jaime Murray? She's the British actress who plays Stacie Monroe on Hustle
. If that still doesn't ring a bell, maybe I should remind you that she graced the second season of Dexter
as wicked hot chick Lila Tournay ---the one who's always running around naked and got obsessed with Dexter Morgan. She's heading to The Beautiful Life
this fall perhaps to wreak even more havoc while still looking smoking hot.
According to Eonline.com
, Murray, who has joined The Beautiful Life
for a multiple-episode arc, will play Vivienne, a powerful wardrobe stylist who has eyes for Corbin Bleu's character, a young model named Isaac. Cougar alert!
Corbin Bleu has already hinted that his character would hook up with an older woman on The Beautiful Life
and it looks like adding Murray to the show just made the age-inappropriate liaison possible.
Bleu's Isaac is one of a group of young models trying to make it in the world of New York City couture so I guess the cutthroat competition may have pushed him to have an affair with an older woman. On the other hand, seeing how bold and seductive Murray can be, it's also likely that he'd fall for her in spite of being surrounded by other beautiful models.
Right now, I can't really see the chemistry between these two but my perception will hopefully change when The Beautiful Life
kicks of on September 16 at 9pm on The CW. Aside from Murray, General Hospital
actor Sebastian Roche has also joined the cast of the model drama series as Raina (Sara Paxton)'s mysterious father, who will appear in a recurring capacity.
What are your thoughts on this odd pairing? Are you looking forward to The Beautiful Life
