'Mom' seduces Beverly D'Angelo and Colin Hanks for guest arcs
Two lovers—one old and one new—are entering the fray on Mom.
EW has learned CBS has enlisted Beverly D’Angelo and Colin Hanks in a pair of guest star roles on an upcoming episode of sophomore comedy Mom, which stars Anna Faris as sober single parent Christy and Emmy winner Allison Janney as her razor-sharp mother Bonnie.
D’Angelo will play Lorraine, the ex-wife of Christy’s father Alvin (Kevin Pollak), who comes back to town and into his life again just in time to complicate his still-sensitive relationship with his other ex Bonnie.
Hanks, meanwhile, will play Andy, a potential love interest for Christy whose idea of a fun night isn’t exactly what she expects.
Hanks and D’Angelo’s episode will air in early 2015. Mom’s second season premieres Thursday, Oct. 30 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
