Calista Flockhart to Play Conservative Pundit in New TV Series
Calista Flockhart, who stared in “Ally McBeal,” is going to play a conservative pundit in a new show.
ABC reportedly has huge hopes for a new series to air this fall called “Brothers & Sisters,” which will follow the hit “Desperate Housewives” on the schedule. Calista Flockhart, best known as Ally McBeal, plays a conservative radio host turned TV pundit. Others in the high-powered cast include Patricia Wettig, Rachel Griffiths, Ron Rifkin and Sally Field. Flockhart recently explained, “I really want to go back to work. It just seemed like the perfect time and the perfect project.”
Asked to describe the pundit, producer Ken Olin (formerly a star of “Thirty Something’) said, “She’s not Ann Coulter. She’s not insane.”
Heh. That actually answers my question, in that there’s a not insignificant similarity in their appearance.
