Calista Flockhart is 'game' for an Ally McBeal reboot


Calista Flockhart "would be game" to shoot an 'Ally McBeal' reboot.
The 59-year-old actress played the title character on the TV legal drama for five seasons, and Calista has now revealed that she's open to reprising the role.
She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I think there are some people talking about a reboot, but I don't know much about it."
The actress starred on the hit TV show alongside the likes of Portia de Rossi and Lucy Liu, and Calista would jump at the opportunity to reunite with her former castmates.
Asked whether she's keen on the idea of a reboot, Calista replied: "Sure - I'm always game."
Calista currently stars in 'Feud: Capote vs. The Swans', the anthology TV series based on a best-selling book by Laurence Leamer.
The show boasts a star-studded cast - which includes Naomi Watts, Diane Lane, Chloe Sevigny, and Demi Moore - and Calista loves working with her co-stars.
She shared: "I love everybody, we had so much fun. We supported each other, we talked about everything. We just had a really good time."
Meanwhile, Calista previously admitted that she loved Ally McBeal's "oddball" personality.
The actress told The Hollywood Reporter: "I had a great appreciation for Ally’s character and the uniqueness of the writing, the hallucinations and the voiceover and all that wonderful stuff that I’d never seen before.
"One of the things I thought was so special about Ally was that she was not an ingenue; she was idiosyncratic, eccentric, intelligent, a work in progress. And she was opinionated, whether she was right or wrong. She was an oddball just like everybody else.
"Usually in a play, series or movie, the central character is often the sane person and that’s the touchpoint for the audience. So when you make the central character goofy and off the wall and just as eccentric as everyone else, it’s risky because the audience doesn’t have that person to hold on to. I thought it was terrific."
