Guest Stars: Treat 'em and street 'em

Recommended Posts

She's Sherry Hickman from a multi-part episode of Major Crimes to me now, but when she turned up in that, I recognized her voice and her general appearance, but couldn't figure out where I knew her from, until I pictured her with longer hair and realized I'd seen her in many things.  When her episode of ER first came up in this syndication, I spotted her immediately.

Mischa Collins is Neela's one-night stand or something. That makes two out of the three main characters of Supernatural who have guest-starred on ER.

Mae Whitman was in one of the episodes today interacting with her almost TV mom Maura Tierney.  Maura was originally cast as Sarah Braverman in Parenthood but dropped out after being diagnosed with cancer.

Hal Holbrook in one of today's episodes.  I looked him up to see how old he is now - 93 next month.  And he guest starred on three TV shows last year, so he's obviously still doing well.

I’m behind since I just finished Abby’s last episode, but my guest star bingo contributions are...

A) Mrs. Garrett! As Abby’s semi-regular patient with the cat whom Abby introduces to Morris so he can take over for her. She was in a few recent episodes.

B) The twin boys also played two of Lynette’s kids on Desperate Housewives, probably around the same time as this was filming.

Season 5  Tarji Henson as a gangbanger's girl and Cress Williams as a cop. Both looked so young.

Taraji got recycled as Benson's niece as well.

Bob Newhart, loved him in the day. I was showing my daughter pictures of him from his old show and she liked the storyline but kept saying, I don't want to watch him kill himself, he's so likable. I said, "oh he wont" (not remembering) and was so sad when he did. Susan was late to dinner and he was having trouble because of his macular degeneration and didn't want to go blind.

The only part that was ignored afterwards was what happened to the cutest lab puppy ever that Susan gave him.  You could see him when he was vacuuming for her visit and he was smiling at him.

Great actor, just wished for a different outcome. Not the best pic but having a yellow lab myself, melted my heart when later they were walking it slept in his arms ; )

I really hope this isn't true, or is a case of mistaken identity, but there's a report going around Twitter that Vanessa "Wendy' Marquez was shot and killed by police yesterday.

It seems to be true.  She had significant mental health issues and apparently pulled a BB gun and aimed it at police.  The police had been called because mental health workers had gone to check on her and she was out of control.

I was just reading about her the other day. That's a real shame. 

 

As an epileptic, I wonder why she had seizures. There are so many potential reasons.

Wow. The news about Vanessa Marquez is unbelievable. I, too, had read she had mental health issues. I'm sorry things went down as they did.

Two that come to mind are William H Macey as Dr Morganstern, I really liked him and thought he was massively underused.

And Don Cheadle as the Med student with Parkinson’s. I really hoped we were going to see more of him, a happier outcome for his character would have been nice
