    I don’t know how old this news is, or if anyone is interested, but – in case: Melissa Berglund, who is the redhead who plays Jenny on Winners and Losers, has won the lead role in a major love story movie that’s being shot in Canada. This is big news, and a big deal, over in Oz. She’s not leaving Winners and Losers though – she’s filming her commitments around it (they’re shooting season 4 over there now).
