We've gotten so used to all of the classic TV reboots, from the on-the-air Hawaii 5-O to the in-the-works Munsters, that when somebody says they're making a new one, it's no longer a surprise. But when someone says they're doing the reverse of a classic show, well, that gets our attention. Fox has picked up the script to a show that's being called a "reverse Three's Company," and while we're not entirely sure that's an accurate description, given that it's about a Midwestern woman who moves in with three young dudes, it was enough to get us thinking about other classic shows that would stink as reboots, but could become fresh new TV if the scenarios are reversed.
After having our worlds rocked by the presence of both Alex Mack (Larisa Oleynik, as Ken Cosgrove's fiancée) and Clarissa Explains It All's Marshall Darling (Joe O'Connor, as Trudy's father) in the same Mad Men episode this past Sunday, it got us thinking about all of the former Nickelodeon, UPN and WB stars of the '90s and early 2000s that the show has redeemed over the years. There's Colin Hanks (of Roswell); Nora Zehetner and Sarah Drew (of Everwood); Matt Long (of Jack & Bobby); Danny Strong (of Buffy); and, of course, Vincent Kartheiser (of Angel), among others. Clearly, the show has an affinity for casting this niche of actors in weighty roles, so who should be next? These are our suggestions:
