Quote Tambam: Those are pretty big shoes to fill for someone. I just can't see that anyone can replace Phyllis. MS is Phyllis. If they do this the poor actor stepping in will probably not measure up.
Yeah, theres no way, TamBam. Who ever steps in will have a hard time getting anyone's acceptance. They would start off on the wrong foot and struggle for a long time.
Nice of you to pick on the actor that will be replacing MS...how do you know she will find it hard to gain acceptance? How do you know that she will 'start off on the wrong foot?' Do you know who the replacement will be, and you are qualified to evaluate her acting skills?
Or perhaps you are only speaking for yourself, that YOU are determined to hate the replacement...a lone voice in the wilderness?
Personally, I am looking forward to seeing what a new actress can bring to the role. If she get through her lines without repeating herself, shoving her face so close to others that she ends up spitting in their faces and flapping her arms about...then I say she will gain 'Instant Acceptance!' :)
