Lifetime has found an actress to play Casey Anthony in the upcoming film about her trial. Young, relative unknown Holly Deveaux will portray Tot Mom.

Although Kristen Stewart and other fan hopefuls were rumored as candidates to play the accused child murderer, the network settled on Deveaux.

The film will be titled Imperfect Justice, a Lifetime rep confirmed.

Deveaux, 19, has appeared in TV programs Less Than Kind and Baxter in her native Canada, as well as in a made-for-TV TNT movie, Silent Witness.

Though the actress' role is a crucial one, Anthony won't be the focus. Instead, the story will center on the attorneys behind the controversial trial.

Rob Lowe has been cast as Jeff Ashton, the prosecuting attorney alongside Elizabeth Mitchell (who will play fellow prosecutor Linda Drake Burdick).

The Office's Oscar Nunez will tackle the role of Anthony's defense attorney Jose Baez, who pulled a rabbit out of his hat and got Casey off the hook.

In other news, Casey Anthony got served with a subpoena in the lawsuit filed against her by Zenaida Gonzalez, and is dreading going back to court.
