Answering the question that America has been asking itself via wistful interior monologue ever since the project was first concocted, The CW has found its Carrie Diaries lead in AnnaSophia Robb, who will assume the role of a young Sarah Jessica Parker in the network’s Sex And The City prequel, as well as absorb all of the cracks about being a “foal” from an Internet that still makes Sarah Jessica Parker/horse jokes. We’ll pause here briefly until you’ve exhausted those…. And continuing: Robb is perhaps best known for her role as Violet in Tim Burton’s Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, although some may also recognize her from Soul Surfer, in which she triumphs over a shark attack thanks to her faith in God, after God attacks her with a shark. Currently Robb is no doubt at least three layers of lace deep into the fittings for Carrie Bradshaw’s 1980s wardrobe while rehearsing era-appropriate wordplay like, “Billy wanted to take me to Raiders Of The Lost Ark, but if you ask me, we should have been searching for the lost spark.” Yes, executive producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, you can use that one.
