I like your SUBWAYS ARE FOR SLEEPING avatar, by the way.

I hope KR wasn't forced out of the series. I find her a very talented and charming performer.

She was clearly forced out or, at the very least, agreed to leave. It says in the article "Rodriguez was to play Sally’s best friend Juliet, a sexy, flamboyant force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country. The character has undergone changes after the table read."

Whether or not that's a genuine reason, or if they just realized their casting department screwed up, remains to be seen..

What a shame- I thought Krysta was perfect for the female Barney character.

"I thought Krysta was perfect for the female Barney character."

Based on...?

I mean, I like Krysta, but how can I know whether she was right for a part we know nothing about, and whatever new directions they are envisioning for it?

Now t/d/b/a haterobics on here.

I love Krysta, but I felt like this was a cheap move to get an Aubry Plaza-type on CBS.

You mean the description that has since "undergone changes"?

I'm perfectly relaxed.

Ew. Krysta Rodriguez has maybe an ounce of Aubry Plaza's talent...

Maybe she is coming back to Broadway. She WAS one of the main highlights of SMASH.
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."

Agreed, whatever it is Aubry is "doing," it's fascinating. I hate to say actors are "brave" but that girl has her own drummer.

Thats definitely one person's opinion. I watched SMASH and can attest to the fact that she was NOT one of the 'main' highlights of the series. She appeared in it in a role barely used or expanded and she was basically used for performance sequences. Heck, even Sean Hayes' guest appearance was more mapped out than Krysta's role.

If anything, I give her kudos for sticking to that hairdo/haircut. If anything, that is more memorable than her work has been AND its helped 'brand' her to some degree. She's yet to play a role that doesn't sport that hairdo. She wore it during her IN THE HEIGHTS performances and even Wednesday Addams had it.
So what does that make you, Brody? A zero-trick pony? - Wanna Be A Foster .........................The only power brody wields is in his own mind, joe. But it's amusing to watch him pretend nonetheless. - tazber

JR,

Not sure if this is what you're implying, but NO actor would leave a series regular role on a network television show to work on Broadway. It's drastically reduced visibility and--more importantly--a VERY drastically reduced salary.

It's more likely that she just wasn't right for it, at the end of the day. They're testing actors for the role right now as I type this. This kind of thing happens all the time during pilot season.

I also think it's interesting that posters at the Hollywood website Deadline think much more highly of Rodriguez than the community here.

I saw her as the understudies understudy for Vanessa in In The Heights. Meh. Cute hair though.

I also watched SMASH and definitely consider her a main highlight.

The people all are pointing
I bet they'd never guess
That the saint that they're anointing
Is frightened of the mess

These posters like to think they make up the majority consensus.

Matt,

I would say the same thing about many of the posters here!

I don't get her appeal at all, I thought she was incredibly unlikable on Smash and I think her singing voice is grating and annoying.
