The ‘Brady Bunch’ Cast Reunites To Talk Remakes, Rivalries And More

The cast of “The Brady Bunch” are back together.

On Thursday night, stars Maureen McCormick, Eve Plumb, Susan Olsen, Barry Williams, Christopher Knight, and Mike Lookinland got together on “Watch What Happens Live” to talk about the classic TV show.

The cast were there to promote the upcoming HGTV crossover special “A Very Brady Renovation: Holiday Edition”, airing Dec. 22 at 9 p.m. ET.

One caller asked Knight about his recent wrestling match loss to his “Partridge Family” rival Danny Bonaduce.

“If you haven’t got the drift on the whole wrestling thing,” Knight explained. “It’s pretty much scripted. I got to throw him around as a consequence of me having to lose because it turns at the very end.”

He jokingly added, “I broke his rib.”

The cast was also asked whether any of them had watched the “Brady Bunch” movie remakes from the ’90s.

Most said they enjoyed the first movie, though Plump admitted she hadn’t watched either of them, telling host Andy Cohen, “It’s sort of on the same shelf as those pornos,” referring to the porn parodies of the show.

Cohen also asked the cast whether there were any famous people who almost got roles on “The Brady Bunch”, and Olsen revealed Jodie Foster had been up for the role of Cindy. Lookinland added that Gene Hackman had been considered to play Mike.

To turn things around, Cohen was put through his paces by being quizzed on details about the “Brady” cast and their lives.
