lauren back in our lives?

It's a bittersweet circumstance, but Michael Ausiello is reporting that we may see the lovely Lauren Graham back on the small screen as early as this spring. You probably heard about the delay of ABC series Parenthood after Maura Tierney dropped out of the project due to health problems. Super sad for Maura, but I'm sure she'll be back healthy and on to another great show in no time. For a while, there were rumors that Helen Hunt was going to take the role, which I didn't mind, but those negotiations apparently fell through.

So, Lorelei is in the running. What do you think? I haven't seen the pilot yet, but I've heard good things. If you live in a hole, the series in based on the early 1989 movie of the same title starring Steve Martin, Mary Steenburgen, Rick Moranis, Keanu Reeves, Martha Plimpton and others. Lauren would play the part originated by Diane Wiest - struggling single mom Sarah. The new cast includes Peter Krause, Craig T. Nelson, Monica Potter and Dax Shepherd.

I would love to see Lauren in this cast! What are the chances Luke will pour her coffee? Just once. Please.

Sending healthy thoughts to Maura Tierney...
