I honestly have to say that the notion of anyone but Melora Hardin playing Sammy Jo is as ludicrous as getting say, Don Johnson, to play Sam in a future Quantum Leap story.

Forget about stupid "this iz teh cool" ideas with casting- too many franchises out there have being ruined by talentless hacks butchering franchises out of some lust for epic shinyness rather than being commited to faithfully respecting the mythos of the franchise (Michael Bay, and Transformers being the most recent examples of this).

The fact is that having the same actor playing Sammy Jo and Abigail, essentially means that Abigail will wind up being a dead ringer for her mother. This is pretty much established. Having Melora Hardin play someone slightly younger than herself also isn't a stretch. Heck half of the cast of Beverley Hills 90210 were in their late 20s and early 30s playing teenagers and that's just one example of many.

Seriously, with the number of hackjobs out there, do we really need one more 80s franchise having the soul sucked out of it through unfaithful artistic representations?
