How wonderful! I just read today there will be a new movie to celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Waltons this year. But, not so sure of the casting! Bellamy Young (from “Scandal”) will be playing Olivia and an unknown actor (at least to me!) will be playing John Boy. Plus, it says Richard Thomas is taking over Earl’s part as the narrator. I can’t seem to think of ANYONE taking over for Earl, but I guess the logical choice would be Richard!
Perhaps this is not news to the many fans of the show and maybe there are lots of things already planned for the 50th celebration. Good Lord, I can’t believe it was 50 years ago that this amazing show began! But, it is so incredible that there is still so much interest in this wonderful show. I know I’ll be watching!!
Apparently it's going to be a remake of The Homecoming. It's supposed to be in the depression era like the original, but a lot of these reboots are updated and I'm afraid we'll be seeing Ben with spiked hair, Elizabeth with nose rings, and Jim-Bob with real tattoos.
I probably won't be seeing it, though. I don't get the CW network here.
