THECOUNT.COM "ALWAYS OPEN! Since 2005!" - February 11, 2011
I know casting for the small screen has become more progressive in the last decade, however, what was ABC (or more accurately, the folks in charge of casting) thinking when casting the 2011 remake of “Charlie’s Angels?”
It was revealed today that Ramon Rodriguez will be the new “Boz”. Those of us who grew up with the original Angels series fondly remember David Doyle as the perfect Bosley, kind, gentle and totally oblivious to the three sexy ladies constantly flanked to him.

Enter Rodriguez? The overqualified, Porto Rican born actor has been on a run as of late with rolls in Transformers, Revenge of the Fallen, and also the upcoming Transformers “Dark of the Moon,” but come on! Does that qualify him to completely change the dynamic of our beloved Bosley?
The kind, father figure in Doyle was a perfect antidote to the stunningly beautiful Angels, and in the big screen version of 2000, Bill Murray played Boz, which was also great casting- keeping with the vibe. Now, in 2011, we get a young latin Boz, who is also said to be “tech savvy” como?
When a remake is announced, the folks who actually remember the original will always use that reference as a measuring stick to rate the newcomer. If the casting mystery of Rodriguez is any indication of what’s to come for the new Angels, I think the viewing audience may end up being as mysterious and illusive as Charlie Townsend himself.
