Trying to read the tea leaves of the Disson casting would be an exercise in futility, I believe.

That said, Disson's invitation to Zawadzki was/is totally reasonable, IMHO. Zawadzki, Wagner, and Gold were the three American ladies' skaters at both the spring and autumn USOC pre-Sochi media summits. (The spring summit included Gao as well.)
- When the majority of the cast members first were announced back in September, Wagner and Zawadzki were listed from the beginning. Gold was not added until a few weeks later.
