Casting Season Three

Season Three Casting documents

As you browse through the following documents, you’ll come to a few conclusions:

  • Kari Wuhrer was going to appear on the show in one form or another;
  • Melinda Clarke was going to appear on the show no matter what; and
  • someone on the Sliders production team really likes Billy Idol.

What follows are near-complete casting documents for each episode of the third season of Sliders. You’ll see the casting calls (complete with original names/characters and plots that were later discarded), the final casting, wish lists for actors, and the oftentimes exhaustive casting session sheets that went into getting guest stars.

You’ll be surprised who comes up over and over again — and who could have been cast. Would you imagine Clint Howard in the role of the lead Dream Master? Or perhaps you prefer Amy Smart, Linda Cardellini, or Danica McKellar as Devin in “Desert Storm?” In a show about what-ifs, this peek into the hiring process opens as many doors to parallel universes as the timer.
