“Samantha Who?” Has First Stunt Casting of Next Season


samanthaLast season there was much stunt casting to be found, from Britney (HIMYM) to Paris Hilton (Earl) and Timothy Olyphant (”Samantha Who?”). According to E! Online, “Samantha Who?” has Mary-Kate Olsen guest-starring next season.

“She started today, and she’s terrific.” That’s the word from a reliable Samantha Who? insider on the show’s latest guest star: Mary-Kate Olsen. After a tip-off from on-set sources, ABC has just confirmed that Mary-Kate is shooting an episode of the divine, good-versus-evil comedy this week, playing a character whom Samantha (Christina Applegate) tries to “save.”

Out of all of the ’stunt castings’ from last season, I thought that Timothy Olyphant on “Samantha Who?” actually worked the best. He was good enough in the role, and worked in so well, that he could have been recurring. I’m not a fan of Olsen’s acting, and am a big fan of Samantha, so I hope that her participation doesn’t take away from the show (as Britney’s second spot on HIMYM did).

Will Olsen fit? What did you think of her on last the last season of “Weeds”?
