Well, this probably wouldn't have leaked if she was making a surprise cameo in s3. So I guess I can stop hoping for that now

Just saw this and wasn't sure where to post it.

Very interesting... I think her making this public enhances the possibility of her appearing in the new show. Only I don't think she will be Josie. I think it will be as another J named character. :wink:

I think the opposite. Why would she let it out and embarrass herself in putting herself out there to get a role only to be told there's nothing we can find for you.

I think this is all part of the game. I believe we will see Joan Chen in some form.

Maybe to garner support in the off chance that David and Mark actually do a s4?

I hope you're right though

Cool! I wonder when she sent the letter.

Says in the interview around the time it was building steam that there would be new episodes.

I think she was just having a goof. Chen does not need the work; she stays quite busy as an actress and is also happy as a mother/foodie. I think she may still be directing.

If this was written before filming, who knows? But I think she's not in it. The perfect place for her IMO would've been in the underworld in place of "Naido" (Nae Yuuki) in episode 3 - that was a stunning sequence as is, but putting Josie there would've floored me.

Would she sacrifice herself for the man she tried to kill? I guess being between worlds could have altered her perspective though

It doesn't matter if she needs the work or not. She wants it. As bad Coop once said.

I don't think having her appear as Naido would've been very fulfilling. If we do see her I suspect it will be in a more pivotal and recognizable appearance then that.

That's what I'd think. Lost in the wood, Josie would have new perspective on Cooper's role in things.

Josie, assuming she's not making a surprise appearance, is one of many unturned narrative stones, and which could provide part of a rich and exciting season 4. I already wrote this late last night, but Josie, Harry (if he doesn't show up), Annie (if she doesn't show up and isn't dead), Catherine, and of course Chester Desmond could all be utilized. Josie haunting the wood of the Great Northern is an interesting idea. I guess Leo's dead, but if not, there could be something interesting there. Who knows what could happen with this new Renault brother. Probably something terrible. Hank could come back, and while it may not be something for which people are clamoring (least of all Peggy Lipton), there could be something there. So many possibilities.

Josie was a lot larger of a character then Ronnette or Jacques. I highly suspect we will never see Nadio again and to have Josie's story line resolved in that fashion would've been rather unspectacular. Unless it was more obvious that it was Josie I doubt that would be how Lynch would bring the character back.

If she ends up not being in it, this letter is gonna break my heart. Funny that she says she knew it would put a smile on his face, but doesn't say whether he ever responded. :?

Wonder if she knew for a fact that Judy was Jodie's sister, or was just going off second-hand rumors like the rest of us?
