Former American Idol runner-up and Broadway baby Diana DeGarmo is headed to The Young and the Restless for a very juicy contract role! She'll be playing Angelina, the Jersey-girl daughter of mob boss Angelo (Mike Starr). The actress-singer starts shooting the CBS soap the week of September 22 and is expected to hit the air late October.
The Alabama-born DeGarmo placed second to Fantasia in Season 3 of Idol back in 2004 and has since been busy on the New York stage, appearing in the Broadway productions of Hairspray and Hair, as well as the off-Broadway hit The Toxic Avenger. DeGarmo also starred in the national tour of 9 to 5: The Musical in the role made famous by Dolly Parton. Will her mafia princess character be singing like a "Soprano" in Genoa City? Let's hope!
