    Amanda Foreman is going to be on Alias!! I love her! She played smart-ass Goth girl Megan on Felicity. She was Sean's (played by Greg Grunberg, aka Weiss) girlfriend and then his wife. Too bad she won't be hooking up with Weiss, because that would be cool. But Marshall REALLY needs a girlfriend. ;)

    David Carradine now I thought Keith Carradine is the better of the two at least in looks -- I wonder how many people remember Kung Fu? I watched that when I was about 11 years old. Yet David Carradine was good in the Mini series "North and South"! :rolleyes:

    Now what should be done is to get on the fan sites -- groups and forums of fans of David Carradine, Amanda Foreman, and Patricia Wettig or the shows themselves "Kung Fu, Felicity, and Thirtysomething" and promote that these stars will be on ALIAS in that way you have a chance to recruit new fans to ALIAS who watch their favorite stars from their favorite shows on ALIAS maybe they will like ALIAS and continue watching! :)

    Enjoy your evening! :)
