Robert Wagner was originally tapped to succeed John Forsythe in the iconic role, but he dropped out shortly after the pilot was shot for personal reasons.

    I LOVE Victor Garber so much!! I think he’ll do a great job.

  2. Renee says:

    This is actually the first good thing I’ve seen about the reboot. He’s good.

  3. Alicia says:

    Now THAT would be some good casting. Not really interested in the show but “Jack Bristow” could persuade me to give it a chance.

  4. AJ says:

    Turtle from Entourage wasn’t available?? ;)

  5. Alison says:

    This is awesome news! Victor Garber is amazing and his voice will be fantastic!

  6. juli says:

    FANTASTIC casting!

    Also, I want him to portray Jeff Winger’s father on “Community”

  7. WyldeMan45 says:

    Wait so this premieres TOMORROW and they still haven’t closed on Charlie? Wow…..

    • Kiki says:

      Took the words right out of my mouth.

    • AJ says:

      Charlie isn’t necessarily in the first ep, and it’s just voiceover work anyway. Not old enough to remember the first run of this very well, but they never actually show him from what I do remember. I kinda assume the first ep will be mostly their background stories and maybe at the end they finally “meet” Charlie or something.

  8. Mikaylah says:

    This makes me wish we’ll get to actually see Charlie! Love Victor Garber. :)

  9. Jackie says:

    Victor Garber would be an awesome Charlie. If he signs, hope we get to see him at some point. He might even sing a little something. Great voice! :)

    Oh please let it happen. Monday night I was thinking where is Victor Garber and why isn’t he on my TV…the last thing he did was a SyFy movie because he wanted to remodel his bathroom. I adore him. And if we can’t see him every week at least we can listen to him.

    • Buffy Freak says:

      He also played Lisa Kudrow’s husband on her Showtime series Web Therapy this season. He was only on a handful of episodes though.

  11. Toni says:

    I am such a Victor Garber fan. He is a fantastic actor. I wasn’t going to watch Charlie’s Angels, but just to hear his voice, I might.

  12. Vannesa says:

    Woo Hoo…miss Spy Daddy.

  13. Tee says:

    He’s too fantastic to be on that train wreck.

  14. tezuka says:

    if they really singed him, then this reboot will be on my watch list.
    I miss my spydaddy.

    • AJ says:

      Do you realize he is even in the show? It’s just small amounts of voice work. That’s it. How that can make or break a show for a person is a little ridiculous.

      • AJ says:

        There is a not missing in that first sentence.

      • tezuka says:

        I also read in other reports that there will be some backstory unfold throughout the season reagrding Charlie. and after his last regular gig on Eli Stone, all tv work he’s in was small roles/ guest spot, i would not mind seeing this reboot just to hear his voice.

  15. Laugh says:

    Spy Daddy!!! I would much rather be watching him still on ELI STONE!! I am sorry to say that I have no interest in this show, but if I did happen to watch, it would be only because of Victor Garber. LOVE HIM!!

  16. Julie says:

    BEST choice! Love him and he’s just right for the job!

  17. ames says:

    that sounds like a good pick

  18. raftrap says:

    They should get Candice Bergen, they changed Bosley into a youngling, why not change Charlie into a woman?

  19. JAO says:

    Love Victor Garber … ever since GodSpell days in the 70s. Would love to SEE him again. The voice will be great, but hope there are some excuses to show him.

  20. Kristina says:

    I would tune in if this works out. LOVE him!!

  21. uhyeahright says:

    Victor Garber is one of my favorite TV actors ever since Alias.

  22. Bogdan says:

    Super, I think it fits better than Charlie Sheen

  23. Lisa says:

    I have to say, I thought the show was pretty good. As much as I love Robert Wagner as an actor, I have to admit that his voice has too much of a monotone to really keep interest as Charlie. Although, in many ways this show is VERY different than the original, although fresh and interesting; I think that part of keeping it interesting is for Charlie’s voice needs to act, in a way. His voice, because you don’t see him, should generate interest of it’s own. Victor Garber’s voice does have an interesting quality, even when he is talking in a laid back manner. I certainly hope he can give Charlie’s voice the uplift and intrigue that it needs.
