Sources confirm to me exclusively that ABC’s freshman sci-fi comedy has tapped the fierce and fraktabulous Lucy Lawless to join the cast for at least five episodes.
According a Family friend, Lawless will play a powerful woman and potential adversary for the Powell clan whose agenda could put the family in danger.
Lawless’ arc will carry the show (which airs Tuesdays at 8 pm) through the end of the season, and hopefully create enough momentum to earn the underrated Family a renewal.
After completing her Family duties Lawless will head to New Zealand to start shooting the second season of Starz’ Spartacus: Blood and Sand.
Thoughts? Are you more likely to pay Family a visit with Lawless on board? Sound off in the comments!
