Duff who starred in Broadways Hairspray a few years ago is hosting MTVs new reality series Legally Blonde The Musical: The Search For Elle Woods, and will be mentoring hopefuls as they vie for the big lights of Broadway.
Duff says the competition will be dramatic, both on stage and off, because a Broadway gig is tough to come by.
She remembers her own audition for Hairspray in front of Broadway casting legend Bernie Telsey as being completely nerve-racking, and empathizes with what the Legally Blonde girls must go through.
She says, The girls will audition in front of Bernie too and hes IT. Hes one of the greatest Broadway casting directors ever, so theyll feel the pressure.
While Duff will mentor the girls to the best of her ability, she wont reign supreme over them.
She relates to the girls as her peers because one day, she could be auditioning side-by-side with them on Broadway for a role.
The Search For Elle Woods premieres June 2 on MTV.
