Posted by Adam
ANGELA Lansbury has been asked to star in the Murder, She Wrote reboot.
The actress recently slammed the new series of the show, so Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, who’s been tapped for the lead role in the updated version of the classic series, arranged for the 88-year-old Hollywood legend to do a guest gig.
“When Octavia heard Angela felt snubbed by the reboot, she called Angela directly,” said an insider.
“She felt so bad over Angela’s negative reaction that she offered not to go ahead with the role unless Angela gave her blessing.
“Angela was so touched. She apologized for her harsh words and wished Octavia the best.
“Octavia asked the producers and writers to work out a two- to six-week story line for Angela,” said the insider.
“She also asked Angela to mentor her and give her tips on making the role just right.
“Thankfully, Octavia was able to smooth over Angela’s ruffled feathers, and there’s no bad blood between them now.”
