JoBeth Williams Will Guest Star ABC's Midseason Drama Mistresses
Amidst all of the new TV premieres (and subsequent DVR juggling), itís a little hard to remember the networks have some good midseason fodder coming up in just a few months. ABC doesnít want us to forget about its midseason drama, Mistresses, however. The network has recently tapped veteran actress JoBeth Williams to play the mother of two of the showís leads.
This wonít be the first time Williams has landed a role as a mother on a television show. The actress appeared as Addisonís mother, Bizzy (I just canít get enough of that name) in ABCís Private Practice, and last year she played Dr. Zoe Hartís mom on The CWís Hart of Dixie. According to TV Line, Williams wonít be continuing her trend of playing a doctorís mother when she joins Mistresses. Instead, Williams will play the mother of Alyssa Milanoís lawyer character, Savi, and Jess Macallanís real estate broker, Josslyn.
Mistresses was initially expected to find a slot in next summerís lineup on the alphabet network, but enough space has opened up for the series to move to midseason. The show is certainly preparing for the switch. All of the leads have been cast, and even some of the mothers. Back in July, The Artistís Penelope Ann Miller was cast as Samís (Erik Stocklinís) mother on the hit show. The drama is shaping up to be more than a little scandalous. If you want to see Williams join in the fun, check out episode 9.
