It’s a Party of Five, well sort of. Three cast members of the cancelled FOX drama have reunited with Point Palace day player Lacey Chabert (London). Neve Campbell will be playing London’s oldest sister Joanie, Matthew Fox plays Joanie’s husband Derek Havenworth, and Scott Wolf plays London’s older brother Bradley. Jennifer Love Hewitt was in talks to play Joanie but couldn’t due to scheduling conflicts. Fox was the hardest to book because of his tied down schedule to the ABC show Lost but took time out to watch Lacey’s character be married to Daniel Cosgrove (Blake).
“Little Claudia’s grown up.” Fox commented.
Joining the family will be London’s mother Patricia played by Mimi Kennedy and Alan Rachins plays London’s father Gavin Tyler. The two are also reunited since the cancellation of the ABC sitcom Dharma and Greg.
In other casting news, Sylvania Harris (Trella) has been replaced by singer and actress Adrienne Bailon. The recast was due to an updated character look. Bailon’s first airdate will be in Episode 66.
