You might not know her name now, but Canadian-born Holly Deveaux, 19, is about to take on the role of a lifetime as she was cast to play the controversial public figure Casey Anthony in the upcoming TV movie, with tentative titles Imperfect Justice and Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

Set to air on Lifetime, the film follows the trial of Anthony that drew national attention after she was deemed not guilty in the murder of her daughter Caylee, 2, this past year. Holly, who greatly resembles the 26-year-old Casey, told ET Canada of the role,

"It's nerve-wracking to combat such a controversial issue as well, the outpouring of negativity for Casey Anthony is unlike anything we've seen in the media in years."
A more familiar face has been hired on to play the prosecutor in the trial, Jeff Ashton, whose memoir the movie is based off of.

Parks and Recreation star Rob Lowe will take on the role, adding him to the list of celebrities who've played real-life people on screen (click the gallery above to see other real-life roles).

Meanwhile, Holly, who auditioned twice for the role of Anthony, said of the opportunity, The more I was tested and stretched,  the more I knew I wanted this role. This is going to be a wonderful challenge!”

She added, "I'm not going to make her into anything she is not. The fact of it, beyond any verdicts in court, is that she was someone struggling through what was undoubtedly the most difficult trial of a lifetime."

What do you think? Can this 19-year-old actress take on such a heavy role? Let us know, below.

    They really look like each other a lot, but I have serious doubts about Ashton's acting talent.

    I think she will be better than Reese Witherspoon. Too bad it's only a TV movie.

    I am a huge huge fan of both Jewel and June Carter! Honestly, to my ears, both of these ladies have a SWEET HEAVENLY ANGELIC VOICE which is such a comfort and consolation to listen to especially before going to bed or if you have some kind of constant troubles in life! Jewel is the most beautiful girl inside and out (Should be noted as the MOST BEAUTIFUL GIRL because she is!) So is the gentle yet strong beautiful June Carter! Jewel a pure country rooted who loves the real nature of the sweet country side. To have JEWEL to play June Carter Cash is the BEST and RIGHT choice that ever happened!!! I already looking forward so much into this. Jewel and June, the most inspiring women in my LIfe! ~♥~

    Incase you haven't noticed, everything is always about making money. No matter what the case may be. Anyway, you know you'll watch it.

    I fully agree that this is sick because the sick B*TCH should not be making money or gaining fame off of killing her daughter. The jurors were a bunch of idiots because anybody can see that she is so guilty. Why else would she have lied that many times. Seriously I cant believe that actress says she had it hard.what about the toddler whose life she robbed from her?. I for one will be boycotting this film because at least I know she will not be making anything off of me.

    This whole project should be boycotted, and any company taking part in the funding of this project should be boycotted as well.

    WOW! I think it's disgusting that there is a movie/TV being made on this woman. Really, is that what entertainment has come to? We're going to give her more attention and publicity for murdering her TWO year old daughter. That's twisted. If I was Holly Deveaux there is no way I could ever play such a character, what an awful way to get your name out there!!! & to be excited about it, and claim "is that she was someone struggling through what was undoubtedly the most difficult trial of a lifetime." Makes me sick.
