Question: Any info on who's going to take over as captain of the Farmington district now that Glenn Close has decided to bail? Bill
Ausiello: I asked Shield creator Shawn Ryan whether he would consider bringing in another A-lister to replace Close next season, and here's what he said: "I don't know. That won't be the first priority. There's no desire on my part to just flatly try to hire an A-lister for the sake of hiring somebody. We feel the show stood on its own for three seasons before Glenn Close; it was the quality of the show that drew Glenn Close to it. So as much as she added, we don't feel like we can't move on without her. We'll see what happens." Personally, I'd like to see CCH (pronounced "Shhhhhhhhhhhh!") get her chance in the hot seat.
