Post Welcome Our Two New Female Cast Members!

At last, madtv.com gives us something that we haven't learned elsewhere first...
Crista Flanagan and Spencer Kayden will join the MADtv cast for the second half of Season 10. Spencer Kayden studied theater at Northwestern University and has been a member of Chicago's theater company Neo-Futurists. She has also had recent success on Broadway in the musical Urinetown in the role of Little Sally. Crista Flanagan received her Master of Fine Arts in acting at the University of California at Irvine and has been a member of the Los Angeles based comedy troupe, Slap 'n' Tickle. She has appeared in television shows such as E.R. and The Practice as well as MTV's series You've Got a Friend.
That gives us a total of five females and eight males (with the departure of Aries) in the cast. Obviously we needed more females and these women are HOT! Keep an eye out for their castmember threads in the near future.

Spencer Kayden



Spencer Kayden was nominated for a Tony Award in 2002 for her portrayal of Little Sally in the musical "Urinetown." While the musical was still off-Broadway, she recieved a Clarence Derwent Award and a Drama Desk nomination for her performance. She has written and performed with the Neo-Futurists in "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind: 30 Plays in 60 Minutes," and has improvised with Centralia, Burn Manhattan, Boom Chicago, and others. Spencer Kayden can also be heard as the voice of Mrs. Pepper on Nickelodeon's BLUE'S CLUES.

Scenes featuring Spender Kayden were filmed at the Sleep Disorder Center at Parkway Hospital in Queens, New York. The Sleep Disorder Center provides quality sleep diagnostic procedures to patients suffering from disordered sleep, serves as a resource for awareness of sleep disorders in the community, and operates as a forum for the continuing medical education of professionals treating sleep disorders.

The Sleep Disorders Center is a highly specialized outpatient facility for the evaluation and treatment of patients with problems related to sleep and wakefulness. For more information, visit http://www.phsdc.com/phsdcindex.html

Spencer Kayden is 33. From that photo posted, I thought she was younger. I'd say Crista Flanagan is about the same age.

IMO, these 2 are probably vying for the spot on the cast originally held by Mary Scheer and later filled by Mo Collins. Here's hoping that both of them are really good. I'd love to have 5 females on the cast next season rather than the 2-4 female "norm". Females are generally much funnier than their male counterparts on MADtv- something that it is well known for. We know that they have way more than enough guys already.

Here's an article on Spencer:

http://www.broadway.com/gen/Buzz_Story.aspx?ci=8945

She's also listed on the Boom Chicago website as a MADtv castmember, along with Nicole, Jordan and Ike.

I can't wait until we get to see these 2 in action.

You can email Crista through her official website here.

Anyone brave enough to do it?

But Wait... I Have Impressions
Keith Johnson and I checked out Crista Flanagan's brilliant comedic stylings at the Flight Theatre at the Complex (6472 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood). But Wait... I Have Impressions costarred Robert Porch and Ken Ward, both of whom are simply wonderful. Great matches to Crista's talent and spirit. Ken was amazingly versatile and Robert is a professional dancer. Just some really good stuff, especially Crista's Luann. She has great characters "in there," but none so well-done as Luann.

There's future MadTV stuff in her show. No doubt.

I guess I will. The Informer wasn't really clear...will they be featured players or full-time cast members? I would not like the latter...in a cast so big already, bringing on two new people to the full cast would probably upset people somewhere along the line. Anyway, I'll email her.

Good. It's about time for more females. I hope they're funny. Has MADtv ever done that? I mean bring two people as cast members in the middle of the season, besides featured members.

Not that I can think of. From what it looks like, they'll be cast members and not featured players. Crista Flanagan's site lists her as a 'Series Regular', but then again so did Lisa Kushell's. I bet we could see them in the opening credits tonight even, but probably not until 1011 after the next taping.

I think they will be featured players. This is really cool that they are bringing more women, but they are going to have a huge cast, so I'm wondering if they're going to drop a few castmembers next year.

My mothers maiden name is Flanagan... I wonder if I'm related to Crista....

LOL

I'm placing my bets on Crista as the funnier of the two.... I was right about Nicole Parker over Gillian, lets see if I'm right again!

I think the cast is way to big to be adding more people. First I think it was 12 then they take away Aries, 11, then they add two girls, 13 people. Well at least they're adding females and not more males.

Lets just hope either, or both of these women have some decent recurring characters. We need some new ones, and Keagan's are getting dry.

That would be funny if you were related to her.

It wont be episode #1010 because if you go to that epsisode thread their names aren't listed in any of the sketches. I dont think they will be in #1011 beacause the informer said they're joing half season. Doesn't the season usually have 25 episodes? If I'm right they wont join until #1012 or #1013. So in about 2 to 3 more episodes.

:: TWO NEW CASTMEMBERS
MADtv has hired two new females for the show, Crista Flanagan and Spencer Kayden. It is the understanding at the time that they will be regulars and not featured, adding to the already big 12-member cast, which may mean there will be another castmember besides Aries leaving midseason. ::

i found this at tvtome.com...so it's a possibility that another castmember might leave...please don't let it be steph.
