Rosie O'Donnell to Guest on "Friday Night Lights"?

Rosie O'Donnell to Guest on "Friday Night Lights"?

Finally, a piece of Rosie O'Donnell news that doesn't make me groan! TV Guide's Michael Ausiello reported this week that "Friday Night Lights" executive producer Jason Katims is hoping to snag Rosie for a multi-episode arc in the upcoming season. Apparently one of the new recurring characters Katims mentioned to me is a female soccer coach angry about all the school's resources going to football, and he told Ausiello he'd love for Rosie to play the part.

One of her representatives confirmed to Playbill that "they are in talks and she loves the show," though nothing is definite. And on her blog today, Rosie responded to a question about whether she would guest-star on the show with "if they ask me yes."

Rosie is controversial to say the least, but I love the idea of her in this role; it makes me think of her character in Beautiful Girls who goes on a classic rant about men, women and objectification. In fact, it's really one of the few things Rosie could do next that wouldn't make me squirm, and it would put her brash, unapologetic attitude to good use. I usually hate stunt casting, but I could get behind this. What do you think?

First, I am sick of all the attention given to Rosie. Let's face it, she had her day in the spotlight and now it is over. I don't care what she has to say! And, as far as this ridiculous "View" situation, why doesn't she let it go. The View is a waste of TV time.

I steer clear of anything with Rosie in it. I don't find what she says all that controversial; she's just loud, obnoxious, and gross. I wish she'd step out of the spotlight already.

Rosie could actually be good in this role. Like you, I hate stunt casting, but after watching Sarah Silverman in last week's Monk season premiere, I think it can actually work. She was great and I think Rosie could be as well.
