Drop Dead Diva returns to the air next month for its fourth season, and the series has been putting together a list of guest stars that includes Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams, and now Saving Grace star Lorraine Toussaint. She’s coming on board to play a former law professor and mentor to Jane who becomes an opponent in the courtroom.
The Hollywood Reporter says Toussaint will play Gretchen Daily, a professor who served as a mentor to Jane and invites her, along with Grayson, to give a guest lecture to her students at Stanford Law School. The two wind up finding themselves involved in a lawsuit against a Silicon Valley company and facing off against Daily herself when the professor is hired to defend the company. Mentor versus student: it’s not a new plot twist but it’s generally a pretty interesting one.
Toussaint has guested recently on Grey’s Anatomy as well as The Finder, but is best known as Captain Kate Perry from Saving Grace as well as for appearances on shows like Friday Night Lights and Law & Order. You could say she’s made the rounds of some of TV’s biggest dramas, and she’s not new to legal drama. She’ll join the list of guest stars already announced for the upcoming season that includes an arc with Kim Kardashian, who certainly has something more to prove as an actress than the established Toussaint.
Drop Dead Diva’s fourth season is set to premiere on Lifetime on June 3rd at 9 PM. Toussaint’s episode is slotted for some time in July.
