Still hoping for a Listener movie?
In a recent interview, Lauren Lee Smith (who played Michelle McCluskey since 2011) said she can't imagine a Listener reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
Co-star Kris Holden-Ried (who played Adam Reynolds between 2011 and 2014) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Listener movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”
