Moffett in, Cullen out on CW's Life is Wild
Brett Cullen has been replaced in the new CW series Life is Wild. This really comes as very little shock since I can't think of anyone who was looking forward to this series.
Cullen is being replaced by D.W. Moffett who was most recently seen on the summer series Hidden Palms. You may also remember Moffett from such forgettable series as Skin & For Your Love.
Personally, I think Moffett is a little young to play a seasoned veterinarian and father of a teenager, but I'm sure his youth had a lot to do with the recast.
Recasts of this type are quite common around this time. The networks will test the pilot of the show on "typical" TV viewers and will often replace actors based on their reaction.
I will never forget when my friend and podcast co-host Jim Bruce went to watch the pilot of King of Queens in which comedy legend Jack Carter played the role of Arthur. As we all know, that part eventually went to Jerry Stiller who was probably the best part of the show.
Keep your eye out for other recastings as the summer progresses.
