I'm puzzled as to why the article about recasting referred to Marion as "ditzy." I don't think that's an accurate description at all. She's very level-headed and smart. Did this person really watch the series?
Anyway, I suspect that for a new HD or L & S, Marshall would push for any actors in his own family to get roles (like his grandchildren?).
