Cancelled Casting Notes for November 26, 2011

Cancelled casting: Joanna Garcia and Jane CurtinAs you probably know all to well, dozens and dozens of TV shows are cancelled every year. We have to say goodbye to some beloved characters but thankfully the actors that play them often still pop up in other shows. This is what we like to call “cancelled casting.” Here’s what some of those talented folks are up to:

Joanna Garcia (Privileged) is reportedly being courted for a role on ABC’s Once Upon a Time. Word is that producers want her to play a version of Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

Jane Curtin (Kate & Allie) is joining the cast of CBS’ Unforgettable and her episodes will start airing in early 2012. The Emmy Award-winning actress will be playing “an acerbic and demanding inspector who was running the medical examiner’s office in Manhattan until being demoted to the Queens Police Department for being insubordinate.”

Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in March 2009

April 4, 2009
We were forced to say goodbye to several veterans of the TV shows from the past. Some are well known to the public and some are not. Either way, the medium of television wouldn't be the same without their contributions. They include Ron Silver (Chicago Hope, Law & Order, Crossing Jordan, Rhoda, and The West Wing), Alan Livingston (creator of Bozo The Clown), Morton Lachman (The Red Skelton Show, Sanford, All In The Family, Gimme A Break, and Kate & Allie), Millard Kaufman (Mister Magoo), Harry Harris (Fame, Gunsmoke, Kung Fu, Lost In Space, Hawaii Five-0, Falcon Crest, and 7th Heaven, and Andy Hallett (Angel, Buffy The Vampire Slayer). Here are the details... Ron Silver, 62, passed away on March 15th after a two-year battle with esophageal cancer. A veteran of many movies (Reversal Of Fortune) and Broadway plays (Speed the Plow), television audiences know the talented actor from Chicago Hope, Law & Order, Crossing Jordan, and The West Wing. One of his earlier roles in the medium was playing the boyfriend and neighbor of Brenda (Julie Kavner) on the Rhoda sitcom. Silver was also the co-founder of an entertainment industry advocacy group, Creative Coalition. On March 13th, Alan Livingston died of natural causes at his home in Beverly Hills. He was 91. He was best known as the president of Capitol Records during the 1960s, having signed iconic artists like Frank Sinatra, The Beach Boys, and The Beatles. He was originally hired as a writer and producer of children's storytelling record albums with illustrated read-along books. He wrote Bozo at the Circus and worked with an illustrator to design the character. The record sold more than eight million copies and spawned Bozo merchandise and local market Bozo-hosted TV shows.
