This one goes out to commenter CS, who came up with this idea. I’ve sat on it for a while, mainly because I don’t really have an answer for it completely. But it’s too good of an idea to waste.
Who would be in your dream cast for a TV show?
It can be any kind of show–comedy, drama, reality (sigh)–so if you have something like that in mind, go ahead and share the deets. As for me? Well, like I said, I have a hard time picking. Here’s my starting lineup:
Lizzie Caplan (Mean Girls, Party Down, Tru Calling)
Jewel Staite (Firefly, Serenity, Higher Ground)
Daniel Dae Kim (Lost, Hawaii 5-0)
I chose these people because both Caplan and Staite have a wide range of acting under their belts. They can play any kind of character. As for Kim, well, anyone who can pull off two languages flawlessly–even faking a broken accent–gets stars in my book.
This is kind-of a random start, and I really have no idea what kind of show it could be. With a cast like this, we could go anywhere from an office situation comedy to a spy drama. I would, however, hope that there are some snazzy one-liners for comedic relief a la Firefly or Studio 60 in there, just because I don’t like melodrama all that much. Speaking of, maybe I should toss in Bradley Whitford…minus the mustache. Hmm, I’ll have to think about that one.
So what do you think? Who would be in your dream cast?
Maybe Maura Tierney…eh, I’m debating that one, too…
