I think after the news of ABCdeveloping Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., CBS announcing a possible Charned remake was the biggest TV buzz of the last year. Even though we just got the announcment of a pilot script order made things heated up rather quickly. At this time CBS didn’t announce any Pilot orders but it will probably happen till the end of the week.
Fans were Torn. On one side they wanted their favorite show back on their small screens, on the other hand they didn’t want for the Charmed legacy to be ruined. Charmed aired for full 8 season, and still holds the record for the longest running show with an all female main cast.
I was Torn as well, Charmed was the first show I really liked and got addicted to. The story of these 3 sisters was a breakthrough, their chemistry, heartbreak, kickas* potions and spells were just working. After some thinking I’m more into a new show, with Charmed based mythology. It would certainly be something new and fans would easier relate to the show.
But nobody is asking me(or is someone) so I’ll give you my suggestions for a reBoot featuring the 4 sisters, Leo and Cole.
Prue -The Leader- Lyndsy Fonesca & Alex Breckenridge both have that strong adtittude and really strong screen presence.
Piper -The emotional one- Shelley Hennig is a beautiful girl. She proved so many sides while playing a witch aswell in the SC. She is just the type of character you feel with. Shanae has many similarities with Shelley, but she showcased a neurotic overprotecting side while playing in 90210! Sounds familiar?
Phoebe – The Optimist Fighter- Kate Findlay posseses that youthful charm Allysa had back in 1998, she would be a really nice match. Jessica Stroup is maybe the only actress here who could portray all 4 sisters, but I choose her for Phoebe cause I barely saw her play a cheerful character.
Paige – The one who Seeks power- Mackenzie Rosman resembles that quirky Paige from the begging of season 4 before growing into her witch role. Lilly Roberts on the other hand has the gentle side of Paige but in Mortal Instruments she showed of some kick as* bad girl skills. .
Leo – The Source of Goodness- Paul is just a choice by pure resemblence, just look at him he could easily pull of a Leo Wyatt, from season 1. Chord maybe doesn’t look like Bryan Krause but has that always positive adtittude, just what a whitelighter needs.
Cole – The source of Evil- James Lafferty is looking stunning and has that boyish charm just like Cole had. While the newest Vampire diaries hunk Michael Marakley besides being handsome as hell proved to be a really bad bad boy.
And even though this is a show featuring Female leads, I’ll give some suggestions for male versions of the girls( just to be sure if the writers pull of a stunt and twist things
