American Idol winner Jordin Sparks will be acting in the new version of Left Behind being shot in Baton Rouge, Lousiana. Today the Left Behind page on Facebook reported:

Sparks’ character is named Shasta, but for the most part her role is being kept under wraps. “Left Behind” producer Paul Lalonde will say that “She will be a passenger on a plane that the film’s main character Captain Rayford Steele (Nicolas Cage) is piloting.”

Sparks is not afraid to speak publicly about her faith. In 2008 the singer revealed that she wore a purity ring after comedian Russell Brand criticized the Jonas brothers for wearing purity rings. Sparks has also sung for the Gospel Music Association.

Earlier this year the Hollywood Lights blog reported that actress Ashley Tisdale, famous for her role in Disney's High School Musical series, was cast in the reboot of Left Behind. Unfortunately for Tisdale's fans, this information is no longer accurate, a new announcement reveals:

"Left Behind" producers would like to announce that due to a scheduling conflict, Ashley Tisdale will no longer be playing the role of Chloe Steele. We wish Ashley all the best as she pursues a television opportunity. The role of Chloe has been cast and will be announced shortly.
