Wanted: New Charlie for 'Charlie's Angels'

Goodbye, Charlie! ABC’s reboot of Charlie’s Angels hasn’t bowed yet but the studio is already making a change on the high-profile project: Robert Wagner won’t be voicing the iconic (and unseen) character this fall. Sony TV, which is producing the drama for ABC, told TV Guide in a statement: “Due to his scheduling conflicts, Robert Wagner will need to step away from his duties as Charlie on Charlie’s Angels.” Dang! The 81-year-old vet of film and TV would have been great.

Suggestions for his replacement? Ricky Gervais? James Earl Jones? Newman from Seinfeld?
