Alright so many of you are rolling your eyes, and thinking that I've gone off the deep end. I assure you that I haven't. Sure many claim that Hot In Cleveland is the Golden Girls but let's face it at some point someone in Hollywood will get the idea to do this so instead of waiting lets get started with the casting of this thing already.
The new Sophia needs to be someone who can be sarcastic and warm, often at the same time or within nanoseconds of one another. No one can replicate the goodness that was Estelle Getty but I think that an actress like Katherine Helmond can the role. Doris Roberts would be a good choice to but I prefer Katherine in the role.
The new Blanche should have the sassiness that our dearly departed (sob) Rue McClanhan brought to it. Debra Messing keeps popping into my head for the role but before any of you kill me I don't think she's right for the part, Unless we deage the characters a bit. How about we go with one Susan Lucci, she would be able to fit into the role perfectly... Though with her short stature she might be a better Sophia.
The new Dorothy is a bit harder to cast. Judith Light would be good, but I have other ideas for her, see below. If Debra Jo Rupp's new show doesn't work out I can see her tackling this role and doingwonders with it. I always imagined her as the new Bea Arthur, in my (very) humble opinion they have the same comedic sensibility.
The new Rose won't go over very well, since the previous Rose is still alive. However Betty White is busy with Cleveland so I think that Judith Light would make the nitwit character he own. Nay sayers can say nay but Judith has a long career behind her and has always played the smart characters and I could see her doing wonders with this not so smart role.
Alright let the bashing of me begin.
