    What about Jocelyne? She claims to be broke. She needs the job. Maybe the CW could afford THIS one? Because I see no soap star boarding THAT sinking ship...

    What is ironic is that Grossman could act the players of the new Dynasty under the table!!!

    Maybe we should concentrate on someone who at least SOUNDS like Nicollette. She'll be in bandages and/or behind a veil or mask anyway.

    Lisa Rinna already stated that she would do any gig for a dollar!

    I think Teri Hatcher would be a good fit, she has already worked for CW and is another former desperate housewife, it would be appropriate.

    :lmao: She and Nicollette played rivals on DH, and supposedly, they didn't get along in real life. So if Hatcher did for any reason replace Sheridan in this role, the irony would be just... :lol:

    Plus, I remember Teri's voice-work in the movie "Coraline." She was frightening as The Other Mother:

    Actress Amy Sutherland has been cast as 'burned Alexis' in the upcoming episode 'Miserably ungrateful men' (2.16).
    She announced this herself via Instagram & she's listed as a cast member on IMDB for episodes 2.16 and 2.17.

    We have to keep in mind that although she was cast in this "Burned Alexis" role, her "role" might very well be to lay in a bed hooked up to machines with her entire face bandaged. I doubt she'd even have lines, given what happened to Alexis. But hey, pad that resume out, honey.

    I was just watching an old episode of the Catherine Tate sketch show. One of her collaborators on there was Ella Kennion, who has played several UK tv roles and some US too I think. Anyhow, I looked her up on iMDB and was quite taken by her look these days in an Alexis kind of way:

    Since Adam appears to be controlling whose image Alexis should be remade as I predict Natalie Kelly will be back as Nu-Nu-Alexis.

    Yes it's ridiculous but there is some drama to be had. How would Blake feel about seeing the image of his tragic bride? Or Alexis react to be the vision of a woman she hated. Plus it's would probably be cheaper than a name actress.

    I wonder if they've given NS an option to return...it could be an interim solution.

    I'm increasingly suspicious of the version of events that NS left to look after her mother. I think she saw the show was a turkey and her character was a joke and wanted out. If she mentioned in that interview that she already has other projects in the works then she certainly could have arranged with Dynasty to return to that instead if she wanted to, but clearly she didn't.

    Actually, regarding the theory that Adam is trying to make Alexis look like Fallon, I think Elaine Hendrix might be the best candidate after all, since she actually does bear a resemblance to Elizabeth Gillies. Not only that, but Hendrix and Sheridan are very close in height (Hendrix is an inch taller).

    And Elaine is younger, being 48.

    She can wear a hat. That's prerequisite to play a character on Dynasty.

    I am now wondering whether Adam is trying to make Alexis look more like HIM. Too crazy? Well, it just occurred to me that his comment about her resemblance to Fallon when younger might have been jealousy-flavoured just a tad (even though it was a casual remark while looking at the photos) and it would be a disturbing thing to do. And, let’s face it (pardon the pun) he is socio-psychopath enough to do that. I think it seems in character for him and in tone for the show. And it could explain the look on the nurse’s face if the photo he gave her was actually of him!

    And then there was Blake’s comment about him having his mother’s eyes.

    So, what actresses late 40s to late 50s-ish look like him?

    Talking of which, is anyone else becoming obsessive about checking every suggested replacement on IMDb and Google? No? Just me? Okay, I’ll get my coat...

    Well they could always go the S&D route and bring her back as Alexis' previously unmentioned long lost twin.

    I don't want to believe that she would use her mother's illness as an (public) excuse.
    Maybe there were different things going on at the same time - NS wanted out in order to spend more time with her mother, and the writers saw the opportunity to revitalize Dead End Alexis (a character completely ruined by themselves, btw) - ah, not to mention the fabulous cliffhanger.

    No matter how dreadful this new Alexis was (her houseplants massacred by an "evil spirit" being the all-time low) I think I'm going to miss her.
    When I watched the hospital scenes with Alexis in bandages I pretended she was still played by NS.
