Sombody posted at IMDB that Mae Whitman' s role is being recasted. The now want Becca to be non-disabled. The 4:48 trailer at NBC's Fall Preview page is now 10 miniutes long with extended scenes and no Becca Sommers. Whitman being replaced this late? Is this a bad sign? They will have to reshoot parts of the pilot.

I dunno if it is as bad as what they did to Jamie's supposed toughness. All of a sudden she's flat out screaming during her fight against Sarah. It's a high-pitched screech that is obviously not Michelle's voice.

Mae Whitman is no longer on any cast list on the NBC page.

I think Jamie is screaming because Sarah is breaking her non-bionic arm. That's not Michelle really screaming? Isn't here a rumor at IMDB that Whitmanis being replaced because she isn't considered attractive enough, not just because Becca is deaf? If they just didn't want Becca to be deaf, couldn't they just reshoot Mae's scenes with Mae not playing her deaf?

Whoa, whoa...one question at a time Alex.

1. All I said was that it does not sound like her at all and it was not evident in the first preview clip, posted in May. It weakens her character....maybe it works, maybe it doesn't. Me? I hate it.

2. I wouldn't take IMDB opinions seriously.

3. Yes, I am sure they could. This is common in television land and the fact that NBC is taking these precautions and spending even MORE money on production leadsme to believe that the show is at the top of their priority list of new shows this fall.

My name's not Alex, it's Andy. I still wonder why Whitman is being replaced now. It pushes back the start of production to July 24, the same week as San Diego Comic-Con. Will BW be promoted there? I hope so. That would be the best media event his summer to promote a show like that. It really helped Heroes.

apologies, Andy....I thought you were the Alex from the Alex7000 site! Ooops!

Ii honestly have no idea about the promotion but what you suggest makes perfect sense. We'll know more after Bionicon this weekend.


Anyone here going to that?

Is BW 2007 going to be promoted at Bionicon, I mean. It's this week. I think Whitman was replaced because the people at NBC studios did not like her performance and/or thought she was not pretty enough. I don't hink is had anything to do with the deaf angle. They could just reshoot her scenes without Becca being deaf.

WHAT?!? There is a Bionicon!!! Wow! How out of the loop am I!?! That would have been awsome. Now I'm sorry I wasted my vacation $$ on Vegas.

Bionic25: What do you mean might no be the case anymore? She's in, out, or not deaf? <so confused>

From the looks of how they've changed the preview they're trying to give it more of an action spin and less of a drama spin at least in the promos...

There is a person at IMDB who calims he knows two girls who went ot read for it. Another claims he/she was requested to read for it and said from how the show was described it sounded cheesy and dumb.

of course it would sound cheesy and dumb to someone who did not get cast in it.

OK. According to the rumors:

Supposedly, there will be a Becca Sommers.

But she will not deaf. Apparently, this takes away from Jamie being a sympathetic character (considering that she abandons Becca). New!Becca is supposed to be a Goth girl, who rebels against authority (and Jamie). And is most likely going to be some "hawt" girl before its over.

But, as they say, this is unconfirmed. Take it with a grain of NaCl.

Wonder if the plan if to bring that character back in as a villian of sorts later on ~ sounds like hte right set up to me...

Bad girl break up ~ turns villian ~ used by other badguys ~ has to be saved by B-Woman ~ has change of heart ~ the two make up... everyone goes "awwww"

:D Depending on how groan worthy the "goth" stuff is maybe this will be for the better.
