Kind of a strange question. Lol. Who would we cast as a 17 year old?? Its fairly easy to play armchair casting director when the role is 30+…..then we can all have fun with wishful thinking. But 17??

If you are talking about Amber from Y&R and B&B she is way to old and @ Mo she could never pass for 17.

2.0 means another version of Amber in the character description…why would I suggest a person that actress age?

I think she’s older than 17, but she can play 17.

For a character that young,they’d be better off casting an unknown actress.

Why would Ridge wanna have a teenaged love interest. At least make her not a minor so a May-December affair won’t be as icky as to where this casting is heading.

I Think Joslyn on General Hospital,Carly’s daughter.It hardly shows her on there and she is very pretty and I bet would Join B&B in a heartbeat.

Another Excellent choice would be Actress MacKenzie Foy. Sh’e 16 years old and she looks a lot like Colleen that played on Y&R.

JOAN COLLINS!!!!!! Some dim lighting, a big hat, and the right camera angles, no one would ever realize that she was “slightly” older than the role required.

A “bawdy” teenage girl? That is disturbing on so many levels.

Harley Graham could be a good choice too!

How about original KIKi from GH? She is older bit could pass younger. Also why would they not bring back some of the forgotten kids? I want to see where Jack is …. How would Bold be if Dominic came back? Would he work with new Ridge and Bill? How about recasting Sally Spectra? robin Strasser, Linda Dano come to mind, but they are many possibilities. Sheila could also come back and be revealed to be related to Quinn!!! 2 cray-cray sisters going nuts for Eric!! I also think Hope should return and Ivy should say bye-bye. So many things… Read more »

The remake is of the satirical, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman ,that developed quite the cult-following back in the 70’s and was a look into American media and consumer culture which starred Louise Lasser as Mary Hartman. In the original, Mary was a small-town Ohio housewife who reacted to the bizarre goings on all around her. The cast also included Greg Mullavey, Dody Goodman, Norman Alden and Mary Kay Place.

In the updated version of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, the loglines reveal it’s: “about a small-town woman who feels like a nobody in every aspect of her life until she suddenly becomes a ‘verified[ social media somebody after her nervous breakdown goes viral.”

According to Variety, “After being shopped by Sony Pictures TV to buyers this spring, the project has landed at TBS.”  That means that it will be in development for the cable outlet.

In addition, it was a welcome birthday present for its creator, the iconic Norman Lear who is celebrating his 99th birthday.

Hampshire not only will star as “Mary” but she will also serve as an executive producer and will co-write the script with Jacob Tierney (Letterkenny).

So, do you like the concept of the updated version of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman? Did you watch the original version? Comment below.
