Which actors and actresses could you imagine asking for a top up at Luke’s, disrupting a town meeting or even taking a seat at Friday night dinner?
That there’s Jane Lynch, the Glee villain in a previous life as a hospital bureaucrat. If there’s one person who could stand up to Emily Gilmore, it would be Sue Sylvester – if she were able to stop griefing Luke about his butt-chin.
Lorelai: Well, what if I fill out this information and you can go find someone who can tell us how my dad is.
Nurse Sue: I’m not supposed to…
Lorelai: Or I could go and you can stay here and continue to discuss this with my mother.
Nurse Sue: I’ll go.
It’s taken for granted that nobody could ever replace Ed Herrmann as Richard Gilmore. They’d be foolhardy to even try. However, a recent discussion on the forums led me to thinking about the wider Gilmore family, nay the Stars Hollow universe – and who might the players be.
Regular New Girl watchers might recall this rather random Taylor Swift cameo, crashing a wedding and stealing the groom (in a good way).
Who could you imagine cameo-ing in Gilmore Girls?
I’m envisaging Anna Kendrick as a squirrel-crazy Gilmore cousin, staying over at Lorelai’s for leaf-peeping season and out-weirding Postman Kirk in her bunny slippers.
Who could you imagine joining the Gilmore family? Or walking the streets of Stars Hollow?
