Betty White, Elderly Actors

Buzz In: Which Elderly Actors Should Get More Roles?



It has been a real treat to see Betty White out and about promoting her new movie The Proposal. She's a hilarious talk show guest and she's the best part of this viral marketing clip. She is also quite the scene stealer in the movie itself and gives one of the performances that helps to save the rom-com from mediocrity. In other words, please cast her in more movies! She's obviously a comedic gem.

Hollywood does not tend to love the elderly folks, even though that age bracket contains some of the most talented actors and actresses around. Jessica Walter (Gangy!) is another example of someone who should be much busier, in my opinion (and not on a show like 90210, thanks). I'd also be tickled pink to see the lovely and talented Marla Gibbs get more work.

What do you think? What other older actors would you like to see get more roles?
