    Since the new Colbys are black, how would you recast the Classic colbys as Black actors/actresses, would diahannCarroll have made a good Sable, or Frankie?

    No. No. No. (Channeling either @Willie Oleson or Margaret Thatcher here)
    Diahann Carroll is 164 years old. Or, possibly, 82. :D
    if she were to play anyone, it would be Constance. I don't think the CW has it in them to create a good role for older actors. But if they did, creating some core character we have not seen before (like Jeff's grandmother) would work as well--especially if they create her with some air of mystery and secrets in her closet.

    I meant, instead of her playing dominique back then, to think of black actors/actresses of the eighties who could have played the colby's back in the eighties.

    I wasn't talking about today, i was talking about, back in the eighties.

    If we are tampering with the time-space continuum, someone needs to find a black Colbys role for Eartha Kitt

    I wish she had played Dominique (and I actually like her songs too, something I can't say about Diahann's dramatic jazzy performances on Dynasty AND The Colbys:rolleyes:)
