Rejoice! Micronian Queen Duff To Selflessly "Give People What They Want"

With her new greatest hits album enabling Duff to pay the power bill and reconnect the phone (and yes, "enabling" really is the word), the Micronian Queen tells MTV her acting career is ready stop being polite, and start getting real:
Don't expect Hilary Duff to play light teen roles forever — as her 18th birthday approaches, the singer hopes to dig in to meatier roles that would let her stretch her acting muscles. She says she's been holding onto a script for the past year that she'd love to see made into a movie, "but who knows if it's ever going to happen." The character she would play is "so cool and weird and messed up. It's not like she's a druggie, she's just different, she's just in her head, she's crazy," Duff said. "I think it would be good for girls to see that."
Forgive me if I sound glib, but I think there's legitimate reason to suspect that MTV may have picked this story up from the WENN/IMDb news page, and thatthe edgy role Duff refers to is in fact the title character of 2003's The Lizzie McGuire Movie. I'm all but positive that "She's different, she's in her head, she's crazy!" was its tagline.
She thinks the project will have to wait at least another year because it's not what people expect of her, and she thinks she needs to "ease into" roles like that. "This is a business, and you have to give people what they want to see," she said.
I'm assuming that, by "giving people what they want to see," Duff means a Pay-Per-View special in which she ferociously attacks Lindsay Lohan with a Conair Crimper, is effortlessly bested by her hangover-dulled opponent's razor-sharp elbows, and immediately fades into harsh obscurity. I don't wanna raise expectations too high, but I'd spend a good month high-fiving total strangers if she screamed "Aaron Carter was the best lover I ever had!" at some point during the melee. In the past I've made a point of saying that no one cares about Duff, but I gotta say, this is pretty excited news. Give a shout if you hear when this is supposed to air.
