    Kathy Bates is a fantastic choice for Aunt Lydia. IMO, Zachary Levi is not a strong enough dramatic actor for This is Us. John Krasinski and Josh Radnor might have been good in Milo’s role.

    I’d love to see Black-ish remake with Maya Rudolph and Martin Lawrence. That would be hilarious! And this is coming from a fan of the original.

    Billy Porter as Titus Andromedon? Yes please!

    Candace Bergen and Vicki Lawrence would make a much better team than Jane and Lily, and I loved 9 to 5. This is amazing!
