I had a really weird brain fart the other day in which I read “Edie Falco” was nominated for Nurse Jackie, and my brain responded, “I didn’t know Edie McClurg was on Nurse Jackie!” Strange, but at least it sent me down a pleasant rabbit hole of imagining other successful TV shows if you replaced the lead with Edie McClurg (if you are a whippersnapper, catch her work as Ed Rooney’s secretary in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, please). Imagine her trying to fight demons with Ichabod Crane on Sleepy Hollow, telling him that some poor souls all adore the Headless Horseman and think he’s “a righteous dude.” Or she could pop by Reign and mutter that Mary, Queen of Scots, is “such a little a**hole.” Hart of Dixie always needs reception help at Brick’s clinic. And let’s not forget how important she could be on Game of Thrones. I want this to happen. The Edie McClurg revolution must be televised.
But I guess we’re here to talk Falco:
After wearing this, she may ALSO wish Edie McClurg had taken her place.
