Is this season an ALL new cast? Not sure how I feel about that
The good ole gang will be missed.'It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia' Gets A New Cast?

When It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia debuted in 2005, it wasn't clear that the show was going to last. There have always been sitcoms centered around misanthropic and selfish people (see Seinfeld for proof), but the particular brand of nastiness and arguing It's Always Sunny brought to audiences could easily have rubbed viewers the wrong way and been cancelled fairly quickly.
One element that helped bring the show attention (and plenty of comedic opportunities) was the addition of Frank (Danny DeVito) to the cast. With the lineup of Mac, Dennis, Charlie and Sweet Dee rounded out by a bizarre and hilarious father figure, the show reached new heights of lunacy.
Now that It's Always Sunny is entering its eighth season, it seems as if a new casting change is in order. If a new promo from FX (via Vulture) is to be believed, we'll be seeing Haley Joel Osment, Xzibit and Andrew Dice Clay in place of the regular cast members --
at least for a time. Check it out and judge for yourself whether this possible version of the show (which returns on Oct. 11) is for real.
