‘The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’ Cast Looks So Different IRL — See Their On-Screen Transformation

Um, wow! The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel takes place in the late 1950s through early 60s, and it’s amazing how they transform Rachel Brosnahan, Tony Shalhoub, Micahel Zegan and the entire cast to fit the time period. The Amazon series launches its third season on December 6, and although it hasn’t been on very long, the quirky comedy has quickly stolen the hearts of fans.

Every detail about the hair, makeup and clothing of the characters is spot-on for the era. The show follows Miriam “Midge” Maisel as she goes from the ~perfect~ housewife to being cheated on by her husband and finding standup comedy. The show was created Amy Sherman-Palladino and her husband, Dan Palladino, — the brains behind Gilmore Girls — so the dialogue is hilarious, the storylines are interesting and the acting is superb.

Life & Style exclusively caught up with Alex Borstein, who plays Midge’s agent Susie Myerson, during the season 3 premiere on December 3. Although the actress is busy these days, she dished on the possibility of returning to another iconic role she previously played — Miss Ungermeyer in the Lizzie McGuire Movie. Would she ever return for the rebooted Disney series?

“You know, I can’t imagine how it would make any kind of sense. If the show is about her as an adult, why a chaperone from her childhood trip would have kept in touch? I don’t know. It doesn’t make sense to me,” Alex, 48, confessed.

However, that’s not to say that she’s completely against the idea. “But, if there was something that made sense and was interesting and it offered up an opportunity that is something I’ve never done before, then yes sure! I’d entertain it,” she added.

While we may not see her reprise that particular role, fans have been loving her as the spunky sidekick to the rising comedian Mrs. Maisel.

More exciting news for season 3 includes some interesting cameos. This Is Us actor Sterling K. Brown will have a small role after Rachel herself gushed that he was her top pick to guest star on the series. In addition, Cary Elwes from Stranger Things season 3 and Broadway star Stephanie Hsu will also appear, according to Variety. There will also be a special treat for Gilmore Girls fans because TVLine reported that Liza Weil, who played Paris Geller, was cast in an unnamed role.

All in all, we’re in for a great season. Keep scrolling to see how the cast transforms for the show!
