Brothers & Sisters Spoilers: A Double Flashback Episode

by at . Comments

ABC's Brothers & Sisters is getting ready to party like it's 1973 ... and 1986!

The soapiest drama with the best cast in prime time is flashing back and casting younger versions of the entire Walker clan for a special two-part episode set in 1973 and 1986.

Between this, Lost and ill-fated Life on Mars, ABC has a thing for the '70s.

EW reported the news yesterday, and notes that not every character will be cast in the past, but seven notables will. Among the roles Brothers & Sisters is looking to fill:

  • William Walker at 33 (set in 1973)
  • Nora Walker at 28 (set in 1973)
  • Holly Harper at 21 (set in 1973)
  • Kevin Walker at 14 (set in 1986)
  • Kitty Walker at 18 (set in 1986)
  • Tommy Walker at 16 (set in 1986)
  • Sarah Walker at 20 (set in 1986)
Kitty and Nora

Any ideas for who should play younger versions of Kitty (Calista Flockhart), Nora (Sally Field) and the rest of the Walker clan in a two-part Brothers & Sisters flashback event?

Katie Cassidy could pull off Holly at 21, but she's a little too tall or maybe Jessy Schram (who is a bit closer in height); but Rachel Bilson is just the right height for Nora; not sure about an actor to play William at 33, though, or the other kids in the 80's; I'd have to think on that some more.

Brothers & Sisters Quotes

No, no. No 'Buts'. You're not allowed to give up. You're not allowed to give up because you believe in your gut that this is right. And besides, we've all inherited this absurd drive to make things that, that yes, they seem complicated and they're messy, but we can turn them into something great.
