Hey, if one of y'all manage to come up with a contender, the more power to you - and the better for me! I really can't lose here. :mrgreen:



Priyanka Chopra. Rila Fukshima?

You're on to something there mate...

Priyanka Chopra in The Big Bang Theory personna would make a lovely Estelle Matsuko.

She is the only person that ever got the best of Sheldon Cooper. She legally tore his apartment contract to legal shreds. She reduced it to Swiss Cheese.

Shame of Leonard to sic his smart girlfriend on Sheldon.

"Hey... Wait-a-min." :rubs chin: "Could it be. Perhaps. Yes! She would even make an excellent Eloise! Quickly! Someone call Rose!"

"ROOOOOSE!"

Before she can even put her bags down.

"I swear Rose, We found Eloise! All she needs is for Connie over in Makeup to insert her topaz eyes."

Wrong Actress and her Roles Ms. Chopra is a former Miss world (2000) and star of Quantico. I assume you're referring to Mayim Bialic.

Nu uh. Priyanka Chopra played a few episodes as Leonard Hofsteder's girlfriend. She was Rajesh's sister.

I stand corrected, in The Big Bang Theory personna...

Priya Koothrappali would make an excellent Estelle Matsuko or Eloise.

Although they are probably too old now, I imagined Dame Estelle played by Rosalind Chao (Keiko O'Brien Star Trek TNG &DS9) or Tamlyn Tomita (Babylon 5 pilot).

Lucy Liu for Dame Estelle.

Ms Liu would rock the role of Dame Estelle, but we all know she is destined to play Allison Harrington. :mrgreen:

Realizing that this (sadly) remains a completely notional exercise, here are my thoughts on a few casting options:

Honor - Ming-na Wen; alternatively, Lexa Doig (although I agree Gal Godot would be an excellent choice also)
Elizabeth - Viola Davis
Mike Henke - Taraji P. Henson
Cathy Montaigne - Amy Acker / Morena Baccarin
Eloise - Hannah Spearritt
Shannon Foraker - Allison Scagliotti
Thomas Theisman - Ben Miller
