Now this just feels wrong: Two of the original Charlie’s Angels — Jaclyn Smith and Cheryl Ladd — told EW exclusively that they have not been asked to appear in the Angels reboot that’s in the works at ABC.
“They have obviously made a mistake!” joked Smith, while walking the red carpet for the 10th Annual Movies for Grownups Awards Monday in Beverly Hills. “I don’t know [whether I’d be interested]. It would depend on the role. Not sure I would want to repeat myself but it would depend on how they revisited the Angels concept. I think it is great. It could be a big hit if is well written and cast properly. It’s probably going to be fun to watch, either way.”
“They haven’t called me yet, either,” admitted Ladd. “The chemistry between the girls has to be right. That was really what it was about for us and what made our show so successful. People really enjoyed the chemistry we had together. And let’s face it — we were hot.”
EW checked and it turns out that Al Gough and Miles Millar – the Smallville scribes who are penning the reboot for ABC – have no plans to include the alums in the pilot that will feature Minka Kelly, Rachael Taylor and Annie Ilonzeh as the leading ladies.
ABC will decide in late April or early May whether to pick it up to series. So maybe the scribes will find a place for Kelly or Kris if the show makes the cut for fall? – With additional reporting from Carrie Bell
