Earlier this year Parenthood’s Lauren Graham branched out from her television star duties and wrote a book called, Someday, Someday, Maybe. The book garnered rave reviews and things have seemingly come full circle for the former Gilmore Girl’s star since a television adaptation of her debut novel is currently being developed for The CW.
The story is about a young actress with six months left on her self-imposed deadline to “make it” in New York, and according to Entertainment Weekly Lauren brought her on-screen daughter in to read for the lead role of Franny Banks.
No, we’re not referring to Alexis Bledel (Rory Gilmore) but before you start crying and binge-eating boatloads on unhealthy foods that only a Gilmore could ingest, we should tell you that the gal Lauren does envision for the lead role is none other than her Parenthood daughter Mae Whitman (Amber Holt.)
Lauren told EW, “I brought Mae in to perform for the network. I didn’t want people to think, she’s you but she’s not you. She is a muse for me, but she has a job and I would never — nor can I — pull her from that job.”
The job Lauren is referring to is of course Mae’s gig on Parenthood. ‘We’re all here at Parenthood through next year,” she explains. “It’s not at all up to me — but she is exactly the kind of person I would picture in that she is unique and talented.”
Do you think Mae is a good fit for the Someday, Someday, Maybe adaptation, or did you have someone else in mind? Weigh in below!
