We can remember spending the months leading up to our 18th birthday thinking about all the things we'd be able to do once that magical day arrived, but, oddly enough, our list didn't include slathering our nipples in shaving cream and planting explosives beneath motor vehicles. Apparently, 'Heroes' star Hayden Panettiere has a different set of priorities, since she just marked her newly-legal status by -- according to rumors -- signing on to portray punk legend Wendy O. Williams in an upcoming biopic that will cover the late singer's traumatic teen years, her rise to fame (or, to the prudish, infamy) as frontwoman of the Plasmatics and her eventual suicide.
We aren't certain that the fresh-scrubbed Panettiere would be our first choice for the role -- for some reason, we had trouble associating her with the words "public indecency" -- but our sentimental side would like to transfer her 'Heroes' character's indestructibility to Wendy O. Our contrarian side, on the other hand, can't wait to see her wielding a chainsaw.
