Casting Endora

Yesterday The Wild Hunt reported that a revamp of Bewitched is being planned for television. And of course, people wondered who on earth could play Endora after Agnes Moorehead?

Agnes Moorehead as Endora

Even though a lot of us secretly want to be Endora deep down, we all know no real Witches look like Endora…

Lady Circe of the Sisterhood and Brotherhood of the Wicca and Lady Sintana of the House of Ravenwood

Agnes Moorehead was an amazing actress who became a recognized name after beginning to work with Orson Welles. She had memorable roles in both Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Ambersons.

Moorehead played Kane's mother, who sent him away out of love and separated him from "Rosebud"

Moorehead broke my heart as unlucky Fanny in The Magnificent Ambersons

So who on earth could fill her award-winning and groovy pointed shoes?

Anjelica Houston has played a witch before, and definitely has the "eyebrow"

Shirley Maclaine could do it, but would she?

Betty White could get the "Durwoods" down, but is she too adorable?

"Big Love" fans know Mary Kay Place has the attitude...

Cloris Leachman could pull it off but is she too zany?

Funny and statuesque, but is Jane Lynch too butch?

Dolly Parton could reinvent the role...

...but Reba McEntire is a tv veteran and has the hair already!

Megan Mullally could be the world's most terrifying mother-in-law easy...

Candice Bergen is another tv veteran who has the "it factor."

Who do you think should play Endora?

About Star Foster

Polytheistic Wiccan initiated into the Ravenwood tradition, she has many opinions. Some of them are actually useful.

    My vote is for Mary Kay Place. She’d make a fantastic Endora.

    I vote for Megan Mulally. I’ve missed her since Will And Grace – she was the only reason I watched that show.

    Candice Bergen or Reba! Just love Reba, and Candice played Morgan le Fey in the 80′s.

      Reba would have to lose that down home hillbilly accent, though.

    I’m changing my vote – I want Dame Edna Everage/Barry Humphries now.  My vote may change again after dinner, of course.  To Imelda Staunton.

    A most entertaining and informative post. Thank you. I have not heard of most of those people though. (I live in the UK and don’t watch TV!).

    Let’s get real, let’s get dirty: Lara Parker (http://www.laraparker.com/) aka Angelique from Dark Shadows.

    And that’s how far back I have to go to tap my pop culture knowledge. If they do a TV show now, I will watch my usual zero episodes.
