She told the AP that she had “a vision of what [her series] could be,” and that she thinks “the best, edgiest writing is now on cable television.” Well, Jane, perhaps you could start with some guest roles.
How about Damages? The show has a solid track record for giving its guest stars a lot to do — holla atcha, Lily Tomlin! — and it shows off an actor’s range as well as any show on TV. (Who knew Ted Danson could be so icy?) If Big Love wasn’t ending, that’d be a good bet, too, but maybe the not-cable-but-still-terrific The Good Wife? I could see Fonda throwing down against Christine Baranski.
This is more of a longshot, but I’d totally watch Fonda go vamp/camp on True Blood, too. I mean, there must be some vampires who were turned in their golden years, no?
Okay, PopWatchers, your turn: Cast Jane Fonda on a TV show. Go!
