That reminds me of a Dutch hobby programme (80s, I think)
WHAT IS THIS?????
A hobby programme, in English it would be "Creative With Cork".
It's just that English "kirk" sounds like Dutch "kurk".
What makes this programme so special is that they always use cork, never clay or paper or walnuts etc.
You are having me on. It's a sketch from a comedy show surely?
Oops, I forgot to mention that it was a spoof on all those naff hobby programmes
Actually, casting Marcia Cross would not only make it a Desperate Housewives reunion, but also a Knots Landing reunion (Nicollette and Marcia were on the show) AND a Melrose Place reunion (Marcia / Grant Show / Kelly Rutherford (Melissa Daniels)). What a tangled web we weave indeed!
Well then! I vote Marcia Cross then as my final choice for Sable. Why the hell not, if there are already a whole bunch of crossovers going on?
Also, I believe both Marcia and Kelly were on Quantico recently. But it's debatable if that's a soap.
Good call. In fact, I think they've already done that with NuMonica: she's obviously a combination of Monica Colby and Jackie Deveraux. In fact, since she is now also NuFallon's "Carrington cousin," NuMonica could also be part-Leslie.
When I first got into Dynasty, I was memorized by the catfights. And after I saw the vids of Alexis fighting with Dominique and Sable, I immediately went searching for a catfight that I assumed would have happened between Dominique and Sable... only to let down.
NuDynasty can give me my wish.
Considering how NuSammy Jo is now "Sam", I think they'd probably make NuCaress "Cassandra", but Alexis would bring up her sister's nickname in college, "Caress."
If we're talking about former Melrose Place actresses, how about Courtney Thorne-Smith?
She might be too expensive, but she's also mostly done comedic roles since Melrose so maybe she'd be up for a dramatic one.
Or if we're going down Grant Show's exes and former Melrose Place co-stars - Laura Leighton:
Yikes. No thank you.
I considered her too, but I don't think she's right for Sable. I think she'd be great for Caress, though.
How about Robin Lively?
Bit too earthy-looking.
Based on visuals I think she'd be a great addition to the NuDynasty cast and I wouldn't exclude her just because she happens to be an ex-Desperate Housewife.
It's just that I don't want her to play Bree again, and that's also why I wouldn't pick Vanessa Williams as Dominique because she has played that role several times already.
Do we have to call him Sam too?
Why is that?
My ideal choice would be Glenn Close, but then it would be a Sable/Constance mash-up, I think.
And why shouldn't she have her own soap series, it worked for Charlton Heston, Linda Evans, John Forsythe, Jane Wyman etc.
Maybe the spin-off could be produced by a big budget network (and I also want it to be classier)
If - and if - they decide to cast Sable they should base it on that scene with Jason and Sable where she's more or less begging him not to go through with the divorce and it all feels so sad and you feel sympathetic with Sable despite she's "officially" the villain. Anyone who has watched The Colby's knows what I'm talking about.
But she wouldn't be playing Bree, she'd be playing Sable. Matter of fact, there's a good chance Sable Van Kirk would have different motives/storylines than Sable Colby did. So Marcia Cross could still end up playing a part quite different from her Desperate Housewives days.
As for Vanessa Williams, I'm mostly familiar with two roles she did: Wilhelmina Slater and Renee Perry. And while similar, they were still very different: Wilhelmina was a ruthless, elitist business-woman who would resort to lying, scheming, blackmailing, and other such criminal activities to get what she wanted. Renee Perry, on the other hand, was a more everyday type of person. She enjoyed partying, had money and owned her own business, but she was miles nicer and never resorted to any "evil" behavior.
And like I said with Sable, there's a good chance Dominique won't be like her original counterpart... not that there was much there to begin with. NuDominique could be a tragic figure, or a more somber character. She could even be hardcore, a Cerberus Knight, if you will. For all we know, she won't end up just another "Diva" character, but someone to be reckoned with.
I'm hoping Kirby, when she arrives, calls him "Sammy Jo", even when he asks her not to.
How about Teri Austin aka Queen Jill as Sybil?
