McKayla Maroney Impressed with Offer to Guest on The CW’s “Hart of Dixie”

She was not the most successful from a medal perspective, but her highlight-reel vault and meme-worthy scowl have made her the most popular member of the 2012 US Women’s Olympic Gymnastics team.

And after a host of talk show appearances and photo opportunities, McKayla Maroney is finally set to make her acting debut on The CW’s “Hart of Dixie.”

The network confirmed that Maroney will guest on the Rachel Bilson-fronted series as “Tonya, a friend of Rose’s (played by recurring guest star McKaley Miller), who comes to Rose’s defense.”

“Hart of Dixie” kicks off its second season on October 2.
