Disney doesn't have the balls/conviction to do something truly new/different. They've had nearly eight years...they would've done it by now. Or at least announced it.

Firefly did it better.

Seems they’re going all-out on the genre/geek casting on this second season. In addition to Rosario Dawson, the Morrison guy and Michael Biehn(!), I see where Katee Sackhoff - and now Timothy Olyphant - are also part of the cast.

So you've got Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, Tarantino/Rodriguez and Alien/Tombstone, and now Justified and Deadwood, actors/connections.

Folks like Harry Knowles will be pulling it all weekend, I guess.

I can only assume Finn Wolfhard will be added/announced any minute now (already part of three big genre projects, why wouldn’t the next big step be Star Wars, right?).

And $10 says that girl who played Selina/Catwoman in Gotham winds up in the mix before its all over.

They’re really aiming for that Comic-Con/neckbeard geek-out, huh? And if they can figure out a way to shoehorn Harrison Ford in there - Solo Prime? - they certainly will. Hey, don’t scoff...he somehow managed to show up in Episode IX, FFS.

Because, doesn’t have to make any sense.

Well, the first season was awesome. If the next season is as good, then I don't care who they cast.

That's kinda my point. If they don't hang a right onto Stupid Shit Boulevard, then there should be no problem. All the above who've signed on are solid, enjoyable actors (or at least have background/cred in this type of fare). I got zero problem with Ms. Dawson, Biehn (great in Aliens and the best part of Tombstone, IMO...yes, better than Val Kilmer) and Olyphant (I really liked Justified).

But it's never too late for some CGI Carrie...remember who we're dealing with, after all.
