Dianna Agron as a Young Carrie Bradshaw?

The CW network has picked up Candace Bushnell’s popular Sex and the City prequel, The Carrie Diaries. The new series will follow Carrie Bradshaw through her teenage years in the 80’s and her early years as a writer in New York.

Hopefully Sarah Jessica Parker and the gang will return for a few episodes, perhaps in dreams about the young cast’s future… but who will play the character Parker made internationally famous?

The Hollywood rumor mill is already churning with the name of every starlet under 25, but it seems the serious contenders are Glee’s Dianna Agron, Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively, and Miley Cyrus.

Samantha Jones, played in the original series by Kim Cattrall, is also a character in The Carrie Diaries, but no word yet on who has expressed interest to play her role.

Amy Harris, who worked on the original Sex and the City series for HBO, will write The Carrie Diaries.

‘I think it’s wonderful that people want to hear Carrie’s side story, and I understand,’ Sarah Jessica Parker said of CW’s choice to pick up the series.

Who do you think would make the perfect young Carrie? Dianna Agron and Blake Lively are definite contenders, but can you think of a few others that might fill Parker’s Manolo’s a little better?
