Jennifer Garner Says an Alias Reboot is Happening

GLORY, HALLELUJAH! The reboot trend has finally given us a remake we deserve!

Jennifer Garner confirmed Friday that an Alias reboot is officially in the works, though it sound like it’s still very early days. “I’ve heard that there’s an Alias reboot happening, but no one’s talked to me about it,” she told The Hollywood Reporter, while promoting her new HBO series, Camping. “I mean it would be totally different. But if they didn’t have me on as a guest, I would be very, very angry. But I can’t imagine it being that serious yet because I haven’t heard anything about it at all.”

Fans holding their breath for a revival rather than reboot should probably take this as a sign to pack it in — though really, what were the odds that anyone would be able to pull Garner, Michael Vartan, Bradley Cooper, Victor Garber, David Anders and a handful of other key players together long enough to make that work? Even J.J. Abrams isn’t God, OK?

Like Garner said, a reboot would have to change substantially from the original, adapting itself not only for a 2018 audience but for a political climate that has different stakes than the world we lived in, in 2001 when the original series first premiered. You can’t exactly have a 20-something double agent with a mother who moonlighted as a KGB spy in this day and age.

J.J. Abrams Reveals TV Execs Feared Jennifer Garner Wasn’t ‘Hot Enough’ for Alias

People shares the report that JJ Abrams talked with Chris Rock some info on casting Jennifer as the lead in his series Alias.

Jennifer Garner rocketed to stardom in 2001 with her breakthrough performance in the hit spy TV series Alias – a role that instantly earned her legions of fans, a Golden Globe Award and posh entree into Hollywood’s A-list.

But, it appears, not everyone was initially sold on casting her as super spy Sydney Bristow.

Series creator J.J. Abrams revealed that some TV honchos were apprehensive about Garner in the lead role. One exec’s particular concern: Was Garner “hot enough”?

“I wrote Alias thinking about her,” Abrams – who had worked with Garner on his other TV show, Felicity – said Friday during a conversation with Chris Rock at the Tribeca Film Festival in downtown Manhattan, as part of the fest’s ongoing Tribeca Talks series.

“I finished it, she came in, was amazing,” he recalled of Garner’s audition. “And I remember someone at the network was like, ‘I don’t know, is she hot enough?’ ”

Garner went on to snag the role, playing the stealth double agent for five seasons until 2006, a move that helped boost her leap to the big screen.

“They’re always second-guessing, everyone’s always afraid at networks,” Abrams said of the initial hesitation.

Of course – with a rich career filled with diverse projects, including the recently released Miracles from Heaven – Garner, now 43, has since proven those early skeptics wrong. Then again, Abrams never doubted that from the very start, he had the perfect star.

“Jen was so great, and she did everything,” he said. “And it was incredible doing the pilot – I remember watching her kind of find this strength in herself. It was just so cool to see, and she just did a spectacular job.”

Hollywood’s 100 Favorite TV Shows

The Hollywood Reporter had Hollywood determine it’s favorite television shows. Alias made #84!

You can only have ONE favorite show. Here, thousands of the town’s insiders pulled the trigger and name theirs in THR’s first entertainment-industry ranked TV list, as the stars and creators reveal their never-told stories (Bill Cosby as Sam Malone?!).

What’s the best TV show of all time? Who knows? This poll is strictly about favorite shows, the programs people in Hollywood hold nearest to their hearts — that remind them of better times or speak to their inner child or inspire their creativity or just help them unwind after a crappy day at the studio — even if one or two of the programs listed here aren’t exactly masterpieces of the medium.

Last year, THR published the world’s first movie list based on a polling of Hollywood pros. This year’s TV survey was handled in a similar fashion. We asked more than 2,800 industry people — including 779 actors, 365 producers and 268 directors, among others — to choose their favorite series of all time (excluding talk shows and news programs). Although the survey was anonymous, some big names were willing to go on the record. “My favorite is Twin Peaks,” says Damon Lindelof, co-creator of Lost (No. 15 on the list, five above David Lynch’s mystery). “It quite literally changed the way my brain worked.” Mike Hopkins, CEO of Hulu, picks The Sopranos (No. 6). “It’s just classic. It had everything,” he says. But even when respondents didn’t volunteer their own identities for the public, the results of this survey are full of surprises, starting with the show Hollywood chose as its all-time No. 1 favorite.

J.J. Abrams’ spy-fi series put Jennifer Garner in a different wig and clingy outfit every week, but that was only part of its appeal. “It was really about a family that happened to be spies,” says Victor Garber, 66, who played Garner’s spy-boss father. “That’s what made it relatable.”
