Looks like the cat’s out of the bag as far as Minka Kelly being in the upcoming Charlie’s Angels TV reboot goes—and the person who opened the bag was none other than her co-star in The Roommate, Leighton Meester.

Though it’s been speculated for some days now that the former Friday Night Lights beauty was coming on board for the Drew Barrymore-helmed series, Gossip Girl stunner Meester seemed to put the rumor in the “definite” column at Nylon magazine’s dinner celebrating Meester’s February 2011 issue on Tuesday night, spilling the beans to none other than Kanye West.

According to E! Online, Meester told the My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy rapper, while discussing the upcoming series,

“I’m so proud of her, she’s going to make one sexy, kick-ass Angel.”

As reported earlier, Kelly would play Marisa, “described as a former U.S. Marine, a weapons expert trained in all forms of hand-to-hand combat, and a neat freak.” Transformers vixen Rachel Taylor has also been mentioned as a possibility for the cast, which already includes soap-opera actress Annie Ilonzeh. (Show-biz icon Robert Wagner has been tapped to play the titular Charlie.)
