Nick Wechsler – “Scarecrow & Mr. King” *Update*

I’m sorry for this unintended but belated April Fool’s joke, which is caused by my wish for Nick to be cast in a television pilot. I kind of skipped the introduction of the article and I hastily clicked on the ‘Publish’ button. No pilot for Nick.

Please read more of the fictitious shows on I agree: “Now the question is: why isn’t Hollywood making them?!”

According to, Nick Wechsler has been cast as Mr. King in the 80s remake of “Scarecrow & Mr. King” for the ABC Family channel.

Scarecrow & Mr. King – This remake of the ’80s classic comes to ABC Family with a twist: Scarecrow is a world-renowned female spy – think Angelina Jolie in Mr. & Mrs. Smith without all the marriage foibles to get in the way. The pilot stars Shannen Doherty (Charmed) as Scarecrow and Nick Wechsler (Roswell) as the well-rounded, but slightly bumbling, single dad Mr. King, who is swept up into the world of espionage due to an accidental meeting with Scarecrow at a Starbucks in Los Angeles. Sean Patrick Flannery (The Dead Zone) is Scarecrow’s enigmatic handler and an as-yet to be cast newcomer will portray Mr. King’s 4-year precocious daughter. TAGLINE: “With a spy like this, what could go wrong?”

This is no hoax: William Sadler is starring in a pilot remake. He plays Alex O’Loughlin’s dad in “Hawaii 5-0″.

Thanks BB!!
