Deciding the TV fates of the fall season’s free agents

The bloodletting of the fall season has begun, with cancellation notices going out for some shows — including “The Mob Doctor,” “Last Resort,” “666 Park Avenue,” “Emily Owens, M.D.,” and “Boss” — as well as others that are calling it a day of their own accord, like “Fringe,” “Private Practice,” and “30 Rock.” These departures unleash a torrent of actors into the casting pool.

Many are faces we’ve enjoyed over the years and will be excited to see in new projects next season. But while they wait to suss out their next moves, we did a little fantasy recasting of our own. While there are far too many free agents to reassign everybody we like, we want to keep these people on our TVs.
