Gretchen Mol Will Whip "Life On Mars" Into Shape

Illustration for article titled Gretchen Mol Will Whip Life On Mars Into Shape

One of the most frustrating things about the original American pilot for the remake of British time-travel show Life On Mars was the character of detective Annie Cartwright. As played by Rachelle Lefevre, Annie had none of the nervous energy of her British counterpart, a woman trying to prove herself as a police officer in the early 1970s. But she also wasn't believable as a "women's libber." So it's probably a good move that Lefevre has been replaced by Notorious Bettie Page star Gretchen Mol, who joins Harvey Keitel and Michael Imperioli in an increasingly star-studded cast. (With original star Jason O'Mara looking increasingly out of his league.) [Sci Fi Wire]

@EBone: Only if "unflattering" means "more rounding." She looks fantastic.

As for the show, I have not had the opportunity to see the Brit version, but with Keitel on board, that makes me cautiously optimistic.
