WHITE HOT. That pretty much sums up the cast of the new Charlie’s Angels. Ever since ABC announced they greenlit a reboot of the iconic 70s television show, I’ve been stalking the project’s every move. As each new cast member was announced, I was on it like white on rice. For the first time since the cast was revealed, we have our very first look at the ladies together.
The new Charlie’s Angels (left to right) Rachael Taylor, Minka Kelly and Annie Ilonzech were snapped in Miami Beach last week filming the pilot. If we were to predict the show’s future based solely on looks, then I think ABC has a hit on their hands. Individually they’re all stunning, but together… fuggedaboutit. Having said that, Minka Kelly, for me, stands out. She reminds me of a young Jaclyn Smith in the picture above.
Being in Miami, it only made sense the character Bosley received a cultural makeover. Just like the original, I hope Ramon gets to participate in the action every once in a while. How funny would it have been, if he also was wearing a white dress. Hilarious, I say.
Rachael, 26, plays Abby, the sassiest of the Angels and a Krav Maga expert. Minka, 30, plays Marisa, a weapons pro while Annie, 27, plays Kate, a martial arts expert.
We’ll find out the fate of Charlie’s Angels and other TV pilots in the next couple of month, as the networks unveil their 2011-12 Fall schedule during the upfronts. I can’t wait.
