Mom casts Patti LuPone as a demanding divorcée
A Broadway star is coming to Mom.
The Tony- and Grammy-winning Patti LuPone is filming an episode of the CBS comedy this week, EW has learned exclusively. She will play Rita, the (demanding) new owner of the building that is managed by Bonnie (Allison Janney).
Rita is a bit of a live wire: Freshly divorced, she’s either barking orders or sharing way too much about her personal life. LuPone’s episode will air in April.
LuPone was last seen on the small screen in My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Penny Dreadful. Last year, she voiced the judge on BoJack Horseman.
Mom airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
