‘Charlie’s Angels’ Loses Robert Wagner

Robert WagnerLosing the title character of a show is usually a big deal, but not so much, in this case. Robert Wagner, TV veteran, dropped out of the new remake of Charlie’s Angels as the voice of Charlie. The actor was reportedly “excited” to follow in the footsteps of original Charlie, John Forsythe, but cited scheduling conflicts as his reason for leaving the project. Fortunately for ABC, because Wagner’s role is completely in voice over, he should be simple to replace. Odds are the network will go with another older white man, but this could be an opportunity to bring a new interpretation to the role. Well, as much as it’s possible to interpret a voice on an answering machine.

Charlie’s Angels stars Minka Kelly (Parenthood), Rachael Taylor (Grey’s Anatomy), and Annie Ilonzeh (Entourage) as the Angels, and Ramon Rodriguez (Battle Los Angeles) as Bosley.
