Fran Drescher Really Wants to Cast Cardi B in a Reboot of ‘The Nanny’
Ever since Cardi B paid homage to Fran Drescher's character in The Nanny by wearing a head-to-toe cheetah look during Milan's fashion week — which she credited to Drescher in an Instagram post, BTW — comparisons have been made between the two stars. And now, Drescher is starting to think seriously about casting Cardi in a reboot of the beloved '90s sitcom.
This isn't the first time Drescher has expressed interest in casting the rapper as her daughter in a potential Nanny reboot, and now she says she's in talks with Cardi's team about the possible project.
"[I’m] talking to her representation," Drescher told ExtraTV at Universal Studios Hollywood. "It’s really getting me excited. It’s fresh and it could be super fun."
"She started it because she kind of paid homage to me, putting our pictures side by side when she was wearing animal print and it was me in animal from The Nanny and that just went viral," Drescher continued. "That got my creative juices going."
"She’s got a funny voice, too," Drescher added. "What kind of a great mother/daughter would we be? Amazing, I think."
The Nanny was on the air for six seasons, from 1993 until 1999. That would make this year the show's 25th anniversary, which seems like the perfect time to set a reboot in motion.
