    could be true, although I would expect some sort of major announcement when any of the big 3 or 4 are confirmed. Some random article getting no media hype seems odd.

    YES! I freaking love Carrie. This pretty much confirms all 3 will be back....now it just comes down to how big of a role...i hope its decent!

    She sounds pretty serious to me. Just a simple straightforward "Yes."

    Sure, Carrie likes to goof around but there was nothing jokey about that particular reply. I think she's in, and I also believe the report that says Harrison is already in, and we know Mark is gonna be in, so...[face_party]

    Actually, her response was the definition of vague. It could mean "Yes, I'm in." or "Yes, I'm not." or "Yes, I can confirm, but I won't." :)

    I get what you're saying but... it just doesn't feel like a calculated, slippery response to me. Yes, Carrie is perfectly capable of toying with us in this fashion. But I really don't think she was doing that here.

    Could it be that we've all become so jaded with fake spoilers and unsubstantiated rumors that anything which isn't 1000% utterly and completely confirmed must be considered false?

    But yeah, caveat emptor and all that.

    My estimate is the the big 3 are in have been for some time probably since prior the sale to Disney. I would not be surprised if the deal was not continent on Lucas getting them to commit. After all, didn't George meet w/Mark and Carrie prior to the sale to tell them about Episode 7...

    You know, I can't tell who's older looking, her or her mother.

    He did. But I'm pretty sure that was to prepare them for all the questions that would likely be asked of them once the sale happened and things like that.

    Don't worry everyone, she will be back. No offense, but what else does she have to do?

    This is a bit strange, considering she was JUST (in Feb 2013) hospitalized for her bipolar disorder. Can we REALLY trust what she says? No.

    If true, she better get on the diet machine and mental stability then.

    Really Carrie looks amazing for her age. She doesn't need to diet, she is fine how she is. I hate that people say these things about people in Hollywood who look perfectly fine. It's like the people that say Jennifer Lawrence is fat, she is a perfectly healthy young lady.

    Carrie is aware of her on mental issues and is working on those. And I don't think that should stop her from doing a role. There are people with far less experience in Hollywood with worse off issues then this who should be getting help but no one ever talks about them or says these things.

    I love Carrie the way she is and I look forward to the possibility of her coming back and I don't want her to change for a role.

    She answers that YES she can confirm it. That is the exact answer to the question. Can you confirm that you will be in it? Yes(I can confirm that I will be in it).

    Look at the question before you jump on the answer.

    That said: if true [face_party]

    My thoughts, too: "yes," as in "yes, I could confirm it (or I could not)." She's a sly one, so you never know. ;)

    I imagine she'll be there, though.

    And thanks, Claire, for the heads-up.

    I agree with you, but let's not fall into the trap of acting like her bipolar disorder categorically won't impact her abilities to do things. It's perfectly legitimate that she might decide she wants a more trimmed-down role than the other cast members. Who knows?

    :rolleyes:

    Anyone else tired of "OMG! What if she's too fat? What if she has a meltdown? What if a F'ing METEOR drops down on her in the middle of one of her stand up acts?" that inevitably get posted ad-naseum every time the idea of Carrie and the ST comes to bear?
