Mom Cast & Crew in Other Projects

Allison Janney was amazing playing Tonya Harding's mom, LaVona.  She deserved every bit of that Oscar.

My husband was abused as a child, and a few times I saw him jumping, and wiping away tears during the heavier abuse scenes.  Completely believable.

Sadie Calvino who played Violet, Christy’s daughter wandered over to 1963 and All Access to play waitress Anne opposite Ginnifer Goodwin and Sam Jaeger on Why Women Kill a Marc Cherry project reminiscent of Desperate Housewives.

I opted to re-watch Murphy Brown when the beginning came back around on Antenna TV.  It's in the last, horrible season (Season 9), where I had quit watching in the original run (where Murphy has cancer, Lily Tomlin is in full-on annoying mode, and they bring back Doris Dial for 2-3 eps, and it's a horrible actress who looked nothing like the original).

In the ep where she goes to the hospital to have a lump-ectomy, both Wendy (as a pregnant woman in labor) and Steve (I think that's his name - the shady lawyer that Bonnie has a brief relationship with and that Christy does work for - they meet him in AA) were in the episode.  Wendy's appearance was brief, but Steve is in a lot of the ep as a scumbag paparazzi photographer, determined to spread the word about Murphy's health (he doesn't know it's cancer) while she tries to keep it private.  They stage a ruse to confuse him, then Frank punches him and exposes his film.

There was also an appearance by the actress who was Marcy on Benson, and she also appeared in Soap as Bert's secretary (Sally, I think).  She was once married to Michael Keaton, and she passed away a few years ago, from cancer.  Ironic, because she was a cancer victim on this ep too.

I like his character on "Mom"; I hope he can continue to appear occasionally.

Ditto, I’m rooting for Andy&Jill!

Did anyone watch this? I can’t find a thread for it, and I’m not invested enough to start/request one. It wasn’t unwatchable, but nothing that really stood out from the pack.

I can start a thread for it. I don't think there were that many viewers.

Nope; I watched the trailer, and it looked so horribly generic I could not muster up any interest despite the presence of Jane Curtin.

The use of the laugh track for the first episode (the pilot) was so annoying I almost switched channels, but I stuck it out and watched the 2nd episode. It was ok, but I didn't see any chemistry between the 2 leads. Not like Jill and Andy! The kids are interesting. Jane Curtin is wasted.

There's another episode tonight (Wednesday); I'll give it one more chance.

Based on some recommendations over the years, I'm currently watching Justified, and the lawyer Christy worked for (I think? Or Bonnie's lawyer?) was also a lawyer there.  Same ponytail, same general attitude - could be playing the same character.  Maybe he hit it rich and moved from Kentucky to California.  Steve Curtis, I think, but I'm having trouble pinning him down on IMDB - a lot of actors with that name.

The actor is Don McManus.

(I "know" him from Any Day Now and The Shawshank Redemption as well as Mom, and he's done one-off guest spots in at least half a dozen other shows I've watched, including a really creepy role in an episode of Cold Case -- he's everywhere!)

That sounds right. Not sure exactly how I came up with the other name.

That's his Mom character's name - Steve Curtis.

Twenty-some years late to the game, I'm just now watching The West Wing.  I'm enjoying seeing "Bonnie" taking care of business in the White House!

There will be an episode in which Adam appears (as a potential Supreme Court nominee). Unfortunately, I don't think they have scenes together.

Cool.  I'm only through season 1 and I'm trying to stay away from spoilers, but I'll keep an eye out!

Since you've seen season one, you will understand:  "I tell you what, let's forget the fact that you're coming a little late to the party and embrace the fact that you showed up at all."

And now you'll be able to fully appreciate why Richard Schiff and Allison Janney doing a walk-and-talk in Bonnie's White House fantasy at the end of "Pure Evil and a Free Piece of Cheesecake" is so delightful.
