Ashley Greene Joins the Cast of ‘CBGB’
Ashley Greene is heading back to the golden days of rock n’ roll.

The 25-year-old is in talks to play Lisa Kristal, the daughter of CBGB owner Hilly Kristal, who will be played by Alan Rickman. Kristal is a fiery young woman who frequently clashes with her father but ends up working as the business manager of his club and then later attended law school to help her dad keep CBGB afloat before it shuttered in 2008.
Ashley joins the all-star cast of Malin Akerman, Rupert Grint, Johnny Galecki, Stana Katic, Joel David Moore, Peter Vack, Kerry Bische, Taylor Hawkins, Mickey Sumner, Steven Schub and Evan Alex Cole.
