Kristen Johnston is so not Edina, but would make a great Patsy.

Kristen Johnston joining the American version of AbFab just might make me want to see it. While her schtick grew old on 3rd rock, she can be a very funny actress. I can easily see her in the role of Edina.

Well if they must push forward with this (unnecessary) re-make, Kristen Johnston is a decent choice for one of the leads. Although, I too think that she would work better as Patsy.

I have been a fan of Bonnie Somerville since she was a kid on the streets of Brooklyn singing the Blues in Flatbush. Real earthy lady, with a soul of an Irish Lass.
No doubt she will steal the show along with every man's heart. Good Luck Bonnie

And there is another great example of the twisted way the networks look at their development.

They are eager (and boastful) of hiring the star of a failed show.

Now, I know nothing about that lady. She may be a great actress for all I know, but the pattern is repeated again and again regardless of whether the actor (or actress) chosen is good, bad or indifferent.
