BIONIC WOMAN Recasting News

Bionic Woman

Word on the street is that a major role in the upcoming NBC drama BIONIC WOMAN is being recast.  Mae Whitman (Arrested Development) played Becca, the deaf sister of the Jamie, the lead character in the pilot.  But Ausiello is now reporting that Whitman is out and they are looking for someone to take on the role of Becca.  Rumor has it that Becca might not be deaf by the time the pilot hits the air in the fall.

I’m ok with this change.  I actually thought Becca was one of my least favorite parts of an otherwise incredible pilot.

    I’m confused. Am I missing something?

    They’re recasting the character and ‘the character’ might not be deaf anymore…that’s how I understood it anyway.

    I’ve always thought she was kind of Ann– I mean bland.

    Kris – Sorry, I should have explained – Becca’s character was deaf in the pilot.

    Thanks, GMMR, for the info. I understood that she was deaf in the pilot but was a little confused as to the recasting. I was trying to figure out if they were going to cast someone complete different or if they were just going to make her hearing instead. I understand now. Thanks =)

    George Michael: She’s not bland.
    Maeby: Are you sure? Under her school picture it said ‘not pictured’.

    It’s a sad state of affairs. I was looking forward to seeing her in the role.
