JUST ONE OF THE 'GIRLS' Graham

Who would you like to see play an existing character?

Lauren Graham is so perfect in Gilmore Girls that I don't know if she'd do as well playing another character. Are there any actors you'd like to see play an existing character? --Valerie Therien
Please rent Bad Santa immediately for proof that Graham has lotsa range beyond Lorelai. As for your question, I used to think, as terrific as Martin Sheen is in The West Wing, I'd love to have seen underrated John Amos, cast as the show's chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, tear into the meaty role of the president. Oh, and I'd love to see what Fred Flintstone would've done as Homer Simpson.

(Got a TV-related question for Ken? Post it here.)
