So, now that the lead has been fired, there’s no more show, right? Wrong! It’s much too valuable a brand to simply abandon. So a decision has already been made that the show will go on.
And, yes, they will be recasting the lead (although they may introduce him as a new character)!
The showrunners are trying to make this all happen very quickly (within the next week) so that they can capitalize on the publicity, and get people excited about the new actor. They also want to send a very clear message to any other prima donna actors out there: you are all replaceable.
In case you’re wondering, the four top candidates for this part are well-known male actors who are all over the age of 30, who are all believable as rogues, and – most importantly – who have a history of being consummate professionals. Walking into the lead role of a top-rated show can be daunting, but, frankly, any of these four guys could easily pull it off. (Blind Gossip)
My dream list of possible replacements: ALF, Jim J. Bullock, Waldo Faldo from Family Matters and Quween on the Scene.
My list of real guesses: John Stamos, Jerry O’Connell, Jason Bateman and Brendan Fraser?
We really thought that this successful funny man was done with the whole bearding mishegas. After all, he did get a divorce and has been pretty much living as an openly gay man. So why in the world would he get married again? Well, consider this mystery solved. He is still gay, but he believes he was more successful when people perceived him as a heterosexual man. His next live-action film is scheduled for release in 2012, so we’ll see then if the whole married man act pays off at the box office. (Blind Gossip)
Let’s just all scream it out loud for the millionth time: MIKE MYERS.
This aging actress who was B list in television in her time, has been going into a medical clinic to be treated for several STD’s. She tells friends she’s volunteering at a local Women’s shelter but it’s only to explain her weekly appointments. (BuzzFoto)
What the hell kind of STD does she have where she needs to go in for several treatments? Just burn that wart off, smear some Zovirax lube on it and get your pussy back out there! And I’ll file the name “Meredith Baxter” as my official guess! Yes, I’m joking.
