Herskovitz: How Alicia Silverstone Almost Played Angela

Post by Sascha (sab) » Oct 25th 2007, 3:41 am

Another Must-Read Interview, this time with Marshall Herskovitz in NEW YORK Magazine. He talks about doing commentary tracks for the DVDs, casting Claire as Angela and his new show "quarterlife".

Also: Would Patty and Graham have gotten divorced in season two?
We were too improvisational for that. The only thing we were pretty sure of, something was going to happen between Angela and Brian Krakow.

I can't believe that they were going to cast Alicia. It would not have worked. As for the revelation that something was going to happen between Angela and Brian then that makes it worse for us long suffering Brian fans.

Casting Alicia Silverstone was mentioned on the AU bonus disc, and I remember trying to picture Cher as Angela.

:lol:

Interesting that Marshall brought up Patty and Graham being divorced in light of what Winnie said about that happening in S2 during her talk at UC Berkeley. I guess we'll never know!

Look, if this is weird for you, being tutored? I don't mind helping you a little longer.
You could have sex with me if you really want to help...I guess that's a "no"?

I always believed that they were going to have something between Angela and Brian. I mean, it's how Claire played the scene. The way Angela looked into Brian's eyes, it's just so obvious something was there.

They (ABC) were deeply unhappy with the show, and they couldn’t figure out how to sell it. You just can’t sell on good alone.
It's to bad that a show can't sell by just being good.
What's amazing is when you can feel your life going somewhere. Like your life just figured out how to get good. Like, that second."

Amen to that!

That was a great interview, so was the Wilson Cruz one! I love it!
There's so many different ways to be connected to people.
There are the people you feel this unspoken connection to,
even though there's not even a word for it.
There's the people who you've known forever, who know you in
this way that other people can't, because they've seen you
change...

they've let you change.
