'Last Man Standing' cast changes: What do you think of the new Kristin?

"Last Man Standing" returned on Friday, Nov. 2 with a politically-charged episode that saw Mitt Romney supporter Mike Baxter (Tim Allen) go head-to-head with his liberal, pro-Obama daughter Kristin on Election Day. What wasn't mentioned was the fact that the family looks a whole lot different in Season 2. Alexandra Krosney, who previously played Kristin, has been replaced by Amanda Fuller. Fuller, who is best known for her work as Alex Karev's intern-with-complications on "Grey's Anatomy," is a few years older than Krosney. The age difference afforded the show the opportunity to retool the family dynamic. Boyd, Kristin's young son, is suddenly a few years older, and is now played by the super-adorable Flynn Morrison. Additionally, Flynn's previously deadbeat dad, who was played by Nick Jonas in the first season, has been aged up (he's got a 5 o'clock shadow now) and is played by Jordan Masterson. Ryan's role has been expanded and he's expected... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/11/last-man-standing-cast-changes-what-do-you-think-of-the-new-kristin.html
