Katherine Heigl Casts Herself In Movie

Once you start climbing the Hollywood ladder, movie roles are literally thrown at you--and if they aren't you can just cast yourself like Katherine Heigl did.

Heigl reveals, "I've optioned a book and there's a role for me. I love the story so much. It's called Lost And Found about a woman whose husband dies suddenly of a heart attack and she goes to this small island off Maine and finds this dog. It's sort of about redemption and healing saving herself and this dog.

"I have five dogs and I'm a big animal person so the book is interesting because parts of it are from the dog's perspective which I loved. In that way, it spoke to me because I give my dogs personalities like if they were a person this is who they'd be."
