@KristenshawACTS is the latest great actor to grace the cast of CBS's #SURGEONGENERAL. She's the best acting teacher in the South, bytheway
Don't know who she'll play.

There seems to be quite a few beautiful women already cast in this show, but I don't recall, is it a 1-man show, starring Jason? I'm sure that'd be lovely for him, but I don't recall ever seeing a show with only 1 man in it. Must be a record or something! Enjoy yourself Jason... LN ;-)

Phew! That was a close one thunder! Imagine a whole show cast with only georgeous women and Jason the only man! Don't know who'd be the bigger audience-women or men? ::rofl e

Hmmm... I'm not so sure how I feel about having a Hobbit in charge of the nation's mental health, although I suppose he got Frodo to and from Mount Doom so he must be okay.

Now, now, LS, short doesn't mean anything more than your feet still touch the floor when you walk. Short can still mean brilliant, witty, and the ability to have all sorts of positive attributes, (a short rant here 'my rants gets raves' ;-) ) e

I didn't say anything about the Hobbit's height, so I don't know where that rant came from. I was thinking more of Hobbits not liking drama and their preferences for elevenses and tea-time (not that I have anything against tea and elevenses, but it might get in the way of productivity ;-) ).

Look another man in the cast!

Coulter plays a drup kingpin on The Good Wife. He's a good addition.

Hmmm ... Amusing LadyS. {Smiles}

Just an FYI ... I've been watching Sean (and his brother Mackenzie) Astin in TV and movies since they were kids. One of Sean's "big breaks" if I remember correctly was when he starred in "The Goonies". {grins}. He is the son of Patty Duke.

It looks like the whole cast of Surgeon General is shaping up nicely. I do hope it gets picked up, and the pilot is all we hope it to be.
