  • This is going to be tough. While I would really love to see Kate on this role, I can’t stand Billy Bob Thornton. So this will be a toss up for me…But happy for her. It seems that she’s been pretty busy since Private Practice ended. Maybe that’s why she wanted to do a shortened season.

  • Great choice! Love Kate so much. Now they should try to get Katie Holmes for Frances McDormand’s role (I heard they wanted someone young-ish) and you have a wonderful cast.
