Hannah Montana: The end is near

If they're still casting about for someone to play Meg Matthews, it looks like Miley Cyrus might have some availability in line: Disney is going to be shuttering Hannah Montana after the current series.

Presumably because Cyrus is getting too old to be credible for the target audience, rather than because it really wants to choke off the series that launched a million crappy pink products being shipped in from China.

"It's always a shame when a star gets too old for the franchise" sighed an unnamed Disney executive. "Thank God we castrated the Jonas Brothers when we had the chance."
