Garner and Acker ,in my opinion, should be at the top of the list of Deborah Pratt's nominees for the part of Sammy-Jo.
So if it's really will happend,i think she should try and invite both of them to audition for this part.

BTW there were 2 suggestion here,that could work -Cara Pifko,who reminds a lot of 27yo Melora hardin and Elizabeth Lackey,who seems to me like a woman that could grow out of 12yo Kimberly Cullum.

P.S.
i can't see Amy-Jo Johnson as Sammy-Jo

That's one reason I was submitting names of actresses with TV work because they're going to be more likely to sign up for a series should the movie spin-off.

It just all depends on how much they want Sammy Jo to look like the actress who played her as a child.

I don't think Jennifer Garner while I enjoy her looks the role.
As for the Julia Roberts thing I have not seen much of her roles and the ones I have are just ok. So I agree that a lesser name actress might be better.

Default Melora Hardin

Melora Hardin - it's a no brainer.

It would give the show continuity, she is still a very attractive woman at 40 and could easily play younger than that, and while she has received some celebrity from her role on The Office, she's still a plausable choice for an actress who would actually consider accepting the role, which would be doubtful with a lot of the A-list stars mentioned. We should try to think realistic here - this is a reboot of a sci-fi show thats been off the air for 15 years - not exactly a dream project for most young starlets right now.

Plus, Hardin has worked with Deborah and the QL team before, which could help open lines of communication more easily for her interest in the part.

If the fan community could get behind this choice, there may be a good chance of a reliable actress, who is currently in the eye of pop culture due to the sucess of The Office, AND who has a history with the show, getting this role.

I think this is a really exciting and realistic prospect. Thoughts? Reservations?

I'm sticking with Amy Acker(and Jennifer Garner). Amy can be perfect for the role. She not An A-lister but she's quite famous from "Angel" and "Alias" - 2 TV series that gave her some experiment with playing multiple characters("Alias") and some martial arts knowledge(both "Alias" and "Angel")
Anyway..."screen tests" were ment for testing actors/actresses to fit for roles in the movie/series/etc,so all Deborah need to do is invite who ever she wants and try to find her Sammy-Jo. It's can be Melora hardin,it's can be Amy Acker,it's can be Jennifer Garner and all the nominees all of us suggested in this thread and a lot more. It's up to Deborah Pratt, now.

Ooo, yes! Madchen Amick is an AWESOME, AWESOME actress. She was great in the sadly short-lived New Fantasy Island, and she was also in "Italian Ties" (ie Face to Face) with Dean Stockwell.

Can't believe I didn't think of her! Good suggestion, isz.

Ehh, She's very pretty and she definietly fits the role better than Jennifer Garner in my opinion.

Just to quickly add one more comment to this, I can at name at least three times where you suggested Amy Akner, twice here and once in another thread, so we get it. So as you did in the comment I quoted above, contiune to suggest other people. We'd like to hear other ideas from you.

Now I know I shouldn't talk because I have yet to make my own suggestion as all I have been doing is critiquing others but don't judge, I have actually been giving it some thought for quite some time so I plan to make a suggestion of my own sometime.

And you both can be sure i will keep on mentioning her,as long as, this project is still only a possibility .What can i say - When i think of Sammy Jo, Amy is the image i see in my mind - to me she seems perfect, exactly like it happend with Scott Bakula,when he got the part of Sam Beckett. DPB tested him and knew he found his Sam.
But i promise you as long as this thread is still "Active",if i'll think of more nominees i'll write them down.

And I see Amy Jo Johnson in the role. Do I keep mentioning her or putting down the other suggestions? I'm sure the appropriate people will read this thread and make their own decision. Shoving your favourites down their (and our) throats isn't going to do any good if they don't want them... it may even have a reversal of fortune if you annoy them enough.

We're all entitled to our opinions and we encourage you to make more suggestions, but please stop repeating yourself. It's really annoying, and, if I'm not mistaken, is considered to be spam.

Ok Can I just politely request that u guys agree to differ here.
It's starting to read like isz is getting flamed, and we don't do that here.

Yeah Naggindraggin I think you are being a tad bit rough and trust me after my incident previous to joining here I know rough when I see it. I just politely made ONE soft comment asking them to move on and that was all that was needed in the first place. Helen is right, the reason I finally decided to join here is because I lurked for a while before and realized that people are extremely friendly here, and I was delighted to not see a flame in sight. If either of you still have something to say to each other might I suggest taking it to PM so it doesn't have to be the whole board's problem. Just be a little gentler naggindraggin just because I know what its like to be on their end of situations simular to this.

Sorry that was the absolute last thing I have to say on this subject. I no longer wish involvment in this; so from here on please leave me out of this. I don't like being in the middle of a disagreement especially when it has nothing to do with me. I just wanted to get naggindraggins point to isz in a gentle way to spare them the feeling I had in the incident I came to this board from. I will only be back here to discuss the correct subject of this board which is the Sammy Jo casting.

I agree to disagree.
Anyway,back to the subject.
I have 3 more nominees...

I'll start with the more familier actress - Amanda Peet she's 35(will turn 36 on January):
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001605/

I'll continue with someone that all of QL fans will recognize... Holly Field,an actress you might remember from... QL episodes - "Camikazi Kid",where she played Jill,the problem is...I have no idea how old is she,and i can't find this detail nowhere on the internet,but i believe she's on her 30's:
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0276253/

And Last but not least...Heather Stephens IMDB doesn't has a lot of info about her,but...Well i found her after a few weeks ago i saw her on a very stupid movie called "Tomcats".she did a very little part at the movie,but i found this part the best part of the all movie - she played a young librerian with a very clean,dorky and innocent look(and very smart),that were seduced by the main character,who found out very shortly she maybe looked innocent but she had a dark side... She had a leather-fetish and was a S&M queen(Or however you called it in the US.) and man she looked gorgeous with those leather clothes. If she could pull this off, maybe she can pull the Sammy-Jo role.
anyway i don't know how old is she,but it seems she's on her 30's from what i read on her board on IMDB.

That's Jill!
Dang, she looks totally different now! I would love to see her play the part, she looks it. Huh and how strange it doesn't seem to say when her b-day is. ANd IMBD usually says the people's B-day, Scott's does. Weird. I think she looks close enough though.

Those other two ladies look great for the role as well.

If the info I caught in the bio was calculated correctly, I'd say Holly Fields is around 31.

At first i thought,that.too,but it didn't make any sense,because if it was true,it means she was 13,when she did the role of Jill on QL's "Camikazi Kid",and she defentley didn't look 13,in the episode. She looks to me,at least, 15(even with her Tomboy look). 18,at the most. that why i figure out her age would probably be between 33 to 35. Too bad i can't find,nowhere, on the web her birth year.

No she would have been no more than 13 or 14 at the time of appearance on QL. From the bio on her:

Quote:
At age 13, Holly went to Los Angeles for one month to see what would happen. A week after the move, she was cast in the CBS pilot "Fort Figueroa" starring opposite Charles Haid.
From her filmography:


It is possible for people to look older or younger than they are and it's not unheard of for actors and actresses to play roles that are older or younger than they are. Heck, Scott did it in QL. Although Sam's birthyear is '53 and Scott's is '54, QL's present was set about 5 years from our present which would make Scott playing a character 6 years older than he was.

I know I originally said Melora Hardin, but the more I think of Amy Acker, the more I like it. She would be perfect for the role of Sammi-Jo. What are the chances of approaching and her accepting the role?

I agree with Julia, she doesn't have to look thirteen to be it and that was my guess as well for her age at the time of QL appearence. Just look at me, I am 20 but if you ever saw me in person and didn't know me you would think I was 15/16. Trust me, you would people all my life have thought I am younger than I am. And like Julia said actors and actresses play charactors a few years shy of their real age all the time. Scott himself is younger than Sam. And Dean is about the same years short of Al because he is two years older than Al plus the added years to get us to QL's present time.

Well i read a lot of post on Holly Fields' IMDB board,and...it seems she defentley born before 1976,according to some messeges i found ther.even the year 1967 came up...but after i read those post i'm convinced she's at her mid 30's late 30's.but defently not her 40's.

P.S.
Actors and Actresses also lies about thier ages,and most of the time,if they lie about it they will give a younger age...
Anyway,i think you'll agree with me,that right now,and according to the age limit we're speaking of, it doesn't matter if she's 31 or at her late 30's,she seems like a good nominee(at least for me).Let,just, hope this project will happend,soon.

For a couple of days now I have been debating the nomination of Sigourney Weaver. She's five years older than Scott(she doesn't look it though) but she has a pretty good look for the part, sort of.
http://imdb.com/name/nm0000244/
This is actually a slightly more recent photo than her main profile image
http://imdb.com/gallery/granitz/6047...tml?hint=group
But what I am not sure of is if this is really her type of role.

Hmmm...I think she's too old for playing Sammy-Jo,but...Maybe if we'll have a Beth or a Donna in this project she might feet.
