Fantasy Casting: “That Girl” Starring Samantha Boscarino and Dale Whibley

This year, a classic TV network introduced the famous 60s-70s series “That Girl” (starring Marlo Thomas and Ted Bessell) to a new generation. I saw some episodes during my childhood but watching the sitcom in it’s entirety was a whole new experience. Also, I wondered if the show was ever remade… who would take on the starring roles?

So, this is my dream cast for a “That Girl” series in the 20s!

Ann Marie – actress Samantha Boscarino

After starring in “God’s Not Dead: A Light in Darkness”, she has landed a number of roles in shorts and TV shows. The former child star is ready to take the lead and being “That Girl” would be the perfect opportunity.

Donald Hollinger – actor Dale Whibley

Do you remember Caleb from “Make It Pop”? Dale scored numerous projects since then and is a familiar face on the Hallmark Channel and ABC’s “American Housewife”. He definitely fits the boy-next-door role while updating it and making it his own.

Lew Marie – actor Andrew Walker

Like the previous actors, Andrew is also a former child star. He was introduced to viewers through the 90s shows “Are You Afraid of The Dark” and “Student Bodies”, and now he’s become a Hallmark Channel leading man. Ann Marie’s father in the classic series is a distinguished gentlemen, this time around, I think it would be better to make him younger. Maybe he’ll understand Ann’s career ambitions a little more if he’s a little closer to her age.

Helen Marie -actress Lacey Chabert

The Christian Mingle actress is best known as Gretchen in the blockbuster film Mean Girls. In recent years, she has become a bonafide Hallmark Channel star. What better mother could That Girl have than a mean girl turned good? Again, Lacey could be a younger parent that’ll be her caring mom and best friend.

That is BTSCelebs’ choices for the main cast, and the possibilities are endless for their friends, co-workers and neighbors!
