In the forthcoming CW show Beauty and the Beast, Kristin Kreuk plays an NYPD homicide detective, and to say that she's unconvincing is an understatement. There's not one thing about her part as a tough cop that we buy, and whenever she doles out some police jargon, it's entirely laughable. We briefly considered that this might be the most implausible character that the former Smallville star could ever play, but then we came up with a few other roles that would be an even more of an awkward fit.
Glee news is so much more pleasant to report now that the show is back on. And I no longer get depressed hearing Madonna songs! Never leave us again, show!
Hey now! Get ready for some awesome casting news
At first, the news that ABC would be remaking Charlie's Angels made me roll my eyes in annoyance at yet another remake, as I'm sure it caused most people to do, but after looking closer at the story, I kind of think it could be fun. Josh Friedman, former showrunner of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, is writing and executive producing this remake as well, and he's actually a very smart guy, and a good writer, despite Terminator's storytelling missteps. At the very least, he writes women well, and as long he doesn't fall into the traps of turning Charlie's Angels into a character melodrama, as Fox's Terminator budget cuts forced him to on that show, this could be the kick-ass, female-driven, addictive series that Dollhouse was supposed to be, if they're careful, and if they cast it right. I can't write the scripts for them, but I can tell you who has Angel potential and who is Olivia Wilde (for example). Here are our Charlie's Angels casting hopes and dreams.
Don't worry -- Megan Hauserman's doing just fine.
