I could be wrong, but I could swear that in previous teaser ads the cast included Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do) and Kathy Najimy (King Of The Hill). Now it looks like the roles are recast, and they're now hyping the inclusion of Christopher Lloyd.

This does not bode well for Fox, reshooting this close to airdate.

I know they changed one of the people by just going back and reshooting certain scenes

This show's had an insanely accelerated production schedule anyway - I think Fox ordered six episodes just based on "Pamela Anderson in a bookstore". I don't think recasting bodes particularly ill under these circumstance; if you look at the pilot and see something's not working, you change it.

I ran across this piece (with cast details) over the weekend:

No mention (much less explanation) of the recasting, though...

Edit: I looked a bit further back, and turned up a couple of items from a couple of weeks ago which mention the recasting of Scott, but no mention of Najimy:

As far as I am aware, Najimy was never a part of the show. She was never shown in the previews that I have seen, nor has she been mentioned anywhere as being part of the cast. You're probably just mixing her up with Marissa Jaret Winokur, another actress who looks similar at a glance, and is about as unfunny too.

Tom Everett Scott was recast because they simply didn't feel he was right for the part. Bad for the show, because he was the best thing they had going for them (sans Lloyd, of course), but good for him... If only because now he won't have to be associated with the flop that is Stacked.

I don't know if it'll be a flop - Steve Levitan was behind Just Shoot Me, which was pretty good, and I have to admit to having liked Stripperella in part due to Ms. Anderson's delivery. It's not a guaranteed disaster.

So help me, this will be utterly offensive below, so I will spoiler it and will accept if it is deleted by an admin.


Is it just me, or is Pamela Anderson Lee much less attractive once you realize she's a Hep-C carier. I mean, I understand the promos, marketing her as some sort of super hot sex babe.. So, maybe that's a sad statement on my terrible judge of character, and I should be able to overlook that flaw, but I keep watching to see if she breaks into a hacking cough fit or turns yellowish, or to see how often she shares utensils or swaps saliva with other actors.. hope everyone's been vaccinated Posted Image

Hep C is only transmitted by blood it's not a real STD. There is also no vaccine.

You're right, I was thinking HepB, for which there is a vaccine, and which is also carried via saliva, etc. My bad Posted Image

The show would not be able to get insurance coverage if she were medically contagious in such a fashion with her medical condition.

I'm really shocked people actually think this is going to be good.

I liked the Pilot for "Stacked" the first time I saw it.

Chris, as someone who was in LOVE with Pam on Home Improvement, I now find her not really attractive at all. I kept looking at her face and trying to figure out what it was that was so different? There was definitely something "off" that made her not good looking at all.

At first I thought it was her eye liner, but she's done that before. I actually think it's the combination of the fake eye brows and the high bangs, but there's something just not 'right' about her. Her body wasn't even as curvy as it once was.

The 800cc implants don't help, either.

Yeah, or the ripple effect across her boobs as she bounces which just broadcasts the message "all saline, baby!"

Well, Pam's having a good week. Her new show was launched and the FDA moved one step closer to returning silicone implants to the market. Posted Image
