  • Isaacs’s such a fantastic actor. Great he’s gonna play Mr. Castevet role. Cannot wait to find out who’ll play Mrs. Castevet. It’s such a meaty role for any actress over forty.

  • I don’t think I want to watch Mike Ross in such a nasty role. But I do think he’ll be great.

  • So, who’s playing Ruth Gordon’s role? She was the best part of the original.
