Mindy could have played Mrs. Garrett. Since Charlotte "created" Mindy/Natalie, it would have been a sweet continuity nod .

I think LISA, MINDY or JULIE PIE indeed would have been ideal candidates, and maybe MOLLY? (somehow i cannot see NANCY MKEON being a MRS G, neither KIM and definitely not the other JULIE or FELICE lol!)

Kim has her own series and probably won't be able to do it. Julie Pie has been very mum about it, despite promoting it. Lisa could make an appearance. I doubt Molly would still have anything to do with the show. Mindy is a possibility. Nancy M. could have something in it.

Yes, Lisa could make an appearence. Mindy and Nancy have always tried to distance themselves from Facts in recent years but they could do something

None of the girls should play Mrs. Garrett IMO. Now that Charlotte has passed, it is too hallowed a role for someone else from the show to perform.

You're right, Eighty. Charlotte is irreplaceable, I can't imagine a different actress playing Mrs. Garrett

Yeah, I mean, I know they'd obviously have to have someone else play her, but what I'm saying is I don't think any of Mrs. Garrett's girls should play her; it should be an outsider. The girls are the girls, and Mrs. Garrett was Mrs. Garrett. I don't want them mixed up.

I would have loved Lisa as the new Edna but, I agree, the girls are the girls

Jennifer Aniston as Blair! Wow, she's quite the draw for this special! Part of me is sad they didn't get appropriately-aged girls to play the characters. But I'm still excited to see the special. Jennifer can certainly play out-of-touch-rich-girl-now-forced-to-serve-food, as we learned from ten years of Friends.

...I don't recognize these other names.

Kimmel and Aniston are good friends.

No? I thought you watched WandaVision. Kathryn Hahn was the neighbor witch.

Jennifer Aniston!!! Amazing, I love it

Ironically, Lisa tried out for Jennifer's role on Friends and now Jennifer is going to play Lisa's role on Facts
