Maybe this will get ABC to reconsider that whole open-ended hiatus thing.
The acerbictacular Christine Baranski is joining the cast of Ugly Betty as a woman whom Betty may eventually call mom.
I kid you not.
Okay, I kid you a little.
The Emmy winner will play the high society mother of Betty’s new love
interest, Matt (Daniel Eric Gold), in a minimum of three episodes.
As I previously reported, Betty meets sports writer Matt at YETI in the
Feb. 19 episode and the couple-to-be are tasked with shadowing one
another at their respective jobs.
Baranski, who just wrapped a stint as the woman who spawned Johnny
Galecki’s Leonard on CBS’ The Big Bang Theory (airing Feb. 9), is slated
to show up in mid-March, right around the time Betty starts warming the
bench for ABC.
But let’s focus on the positive: This casting rocks!
