Today it was announced that NBC's upcoming sitcom adaptation of Chelsea Handler's memoir Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea has found its 20-year-old version of Chelsea Handler in Laura Prepon, a TV veteran who is 30, and a mere five years younger than Chelsea Handler's (alleged, because, come on) current age. We're not saying Laura Prepon won't do a decent job, but nevertheless, this means it's time to cast other comedians' memoirs with their TV-inappropriate counterparts. Because you know TV executives would do half this crap.
Since the Facebook campaign to get Betty White to host Saturday Night Live was such a great success, there are already new groups popping up in support of everyone from Johnny Weir to random people's relatives. That's all well and good, but there are a lot of talented actresses out there of a certain age who could certainly benefit from this sort of career boost. And we can't imagine we'll get tired of sweet older ladies talking about lesbians or spouting profanities any time soon. Since Cloris Leachman already had her shot at a comeback with her goofy Dancing With the Stars stint, here are some other folks who've fallen off the radar that we'd want to see enjoy the full Betty White treatment. We assume Lorne Michaels knows how to get in touch with them.
