Aly Michalka is the epitome of a best friend character. The former Disney star who rose to fame after playing the best friend of a time traveler in the popular 2000's tv show, "Phil of the Future," will once again play the best friend role in the CW's upcoming "iZombie" series.

Only this time, she'll be the best friend of a zombie. Aly Michalka has been cast as Peyton Charles, the best friend of Rose Mclver's zombified Liv. Although the role is listed as reoccurring, this will be Michalka's second series with the CW after starring in the cheerleading drama "Hellcats" a few years earlier. She replaces Alexandra Krosney who played Peyton in the pilot episode.

Michalka is also known for her musical talents as she is involved in a band with her sister called 78violet or Aly and AJ as they used to be called. She's appeared in various film and television roles such as "Bandslam," "Easy A," "Grown Ups 2," and "Two and a Half Men."

"iZombie" is an ongoing series from publisher Vertigo which tells the story of a zombie gravedigger who retains enough humanly features in which she can pass as a human. The CW series is a loosely based adaptation of the comic, introducing a brand new lead character and supporting cast. The show has already been picked up for the 2013-2014 calendar schedule by the CW joining fellow DC property "The Flash" as debuting shows for the network.
