ABC’s most promising freshman comedy has recast the role of testy teen Hillary (played in the original pilot by Gianna LePera) with Once fave Bailee Madison, our sister site Deadline reports — thereby fulfilling the prediction of TVLine reader Mark, who thusly collects 250 Power User points (currently of no value).
Trophy Wife stars Malin Akerman (Suburgatory) as Kate, a party girl who upon marrying a charming lawyer (The West Wing‘s Bradley Whitford) finds herself immersed in his very full family life, populated by three kids and two ex-wives.
With Madison’s casting, alas, they’ll now have to reshoot one of the very best parts of the pilot, wherein Kate chugs a bottle of vodka to save Hil’s bacon. Let’s hope lightning strikes twice with Akerman’s extended performance.
Trophy Wife will air Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c, starting Sept. 24.
