Linda Lavin on ‘Being the Ricardos’; ‘Alice’ Reboot with ‘Amy Adams’

Linda Lavin discusses her upcoming film “Being the Ricardos” on “The Talk” Monday. “I was offered the role of Madelyn Pugh, who was their head writer from the radio days. She wrote for Lucy... And I said to my agent, you know, Madelyn Pugh who then became Madelyn Davis years later, was my head writer on ‘Alice.’ So nobody knew that and the miracle of it. The surprise of it meant so much to me, because Madelyn and I worked together. She was my head writer for 8 out of the 9 years we were on the air…and then I got to play her in the movie.” On who she’d cast as ‘Alice’ in a series reboot, Lavin says, “Amy Adams came to mind, very talented actress on many levels. Alice was of course a singer and as well as a waitress. Amy can do all that. The show still resonates with so many women, so many families who grew up with Alice...I think the show could be rebooted with a number of wonderful actors, it could be done in a multi-racial way, it could be done in a more current way...I think it would be wonderful to bring it forward.”
