Speaking of the prospect of casting Milo back in 2018, Amy told Variety: ‘Don’t think it has not been discussed! It’s got to be the right part. It can’t be just a cameo. It’s got to have some meat to it.’
‘And it’s also got to be a time when [Milo] can shave and cut his hair into a 1950s period look. But the reuniting will definitely happen.’
