I'm obsessed with watching Eight is Enough on MeTooTV.
I decided to recast for 2009 because I'm that much of a mental patient. Actors today are so gorgeous, I'm not entirely happy with my choices, but casting for little quirks isn't as easy as it used to be.
*I did find a crazy amount of new girlfriends who would have at least gotten a private audition and a call back. I may write about them later.
Tom Bradford AKA Daddy
Michael Aday or Dave Thomas. My first choice is probably Meatloaf.
Toni Collette was actually my inspiration for the recasting. She's very Abby-ish. To me.
Kyle Schmid. Why not?
Spencer Grammer. Kelsey's kid.
Amber Marshall. She's a little more Susan than Joanie, but she's old enough, she's my girlfriend, and she played Elizabeth Smart!
Ashley Benson. She has all Nancy's assets. Elizabeth Bradford
Sarah Ramos. C'mon! She's perfect.
Bonnie Wright. I don't know nuthin bout the Harry Potter movies, but she'll do.
Graham Phillips is not terribly Willie Ames-ish, but he did sing on Bat Out of Hell 3.
His name is Slade Pearce, which is awesome. Kind of a mid-range Nicolas, but I like it.
