'iZombie' recasts mom, adds 'Devious Maids' star
The CW’s comic book adaptation iZombie has recast the role of Olivia “Liv” Moore’s mom, tapping Molly Hagan to replace the originally cast Nora Dunn, EW has learned exclusively.
Based on the DC Comics property, the new series stars Rose McIver as Liv, a med student-turned-zombie who works in the corner’s office to gain access to the brains she needs to eat in order to keep her humanity intact. Using the memories of the people whose brains she digests, she now helps solve homicide cases.
Hagan (Unfabulous) will recur as Eva Moore, a hospital administrator and overbearing mother who watches her ambitious daughter become a zombiefied couch potato who breaks off her engagement to every mom’s dream son-in-law.
In other iZombie news, Devious Maids star and Scrubs alum Judy Reyes will guest star as Lola Abano, an artsy bohemian who becomes the prime suspect when her artist husband is murdered.
iZombie will premiere midseason on The CW.
