Ringer Scoop: Ex Marks the Spot for Andrea Roth

Get More: Casting News, News

Sarah Michelle Gellar’s bratty Ringer step-daughter has found her mommy.

Rescue Me alumna Andrea Roth has been cast on the CW series in the recurring role of Catherine, Andrew’s ex-wife and thus Juliet mother, TVLine has learned.

Ringer Exclusive: Mädchen Amick Cast as Siobhan’s Estranged Friend

Catherine is described as sexy, smart and intimidating. Her less-complimentary traits include being conniving and very vindictive — basically,  everything you’d expect from an upper-crust ex. Thus, she’ll immediately cause turmoil for the Martin family when she returns to New York. And we’d expect no less.

Ringer returns with a brand new episode next Tuesday at 9/8c.

  • I would have loooovvvvedd to see Charisma Carpenter cast as Juliet’s mom. Don’t know much about Andrea Roth, but it sounds like she’ll be great!

    • I didn’t think of it till you mentioned it but Charisma would have been perfect! She plays b*tch to perfection! I think they need to find a way to get Xander (why I can never remember his name is beyond me) to guest star.

      • Nicholas Brendon.

        Charisma Carpenter is a genius idea.

      • I would have loved to see Charisma Carpenter play Juliet’s mom. She played a bitchy step-mom on Veronica Mars so it’s not like the role is a reach. Plus I want a BTVS reunion!

    • Andrea Roth would be great because she’s a proper actress as opposed to mediocrity like Charisma Carpenter. Just sayin’.

  • I’m with DreamRose311. I would have LOVED to see Charisma Carpenter in this role. Sexy, smart, intimidating, conniving, vindictive – Carpenter does those things so well. And seeing her face off against SMG? It would have been GOLDEN.

  • Love this show but it already feels like there are way too many characters and storylines going on simultaneously. Hope they drop the daughter/teacher/high school arc soon. Much more interested in the double crossing, who-dunnit, solving the mystery elements (along with a budding romance with Bridget and Andrew of course!) and less of the touchy-feely relationship stuff.

    • They just removed Emma and the sponsor,but added the High School teacher.Can afford to add the mother.

      • It’s Gemma not Emma.

        • Thank you for pointing that out because I couldn’t figure out who this Emma character is.

          • me neither and it was going to start driving me nuts!

  • The episode of this show you really want to see is THE SEASON/SERIES FINALE,when Bridget learns that Siobhan is still very much alive,and has been playing her like a Gibson guitar all this time.

    WHO WANTS TO SEE BRIDGET AND SIOBAHN IN THE BIG THROWDOWN AT THE END OF THE SEASON? LET ME HEAR YOUR RESPONSE…..RIGHT NOW!!!

    Also,I wouldn’t mind this show wrapping up after one season.
    To go beyond that would drag it out too much.

    Also,here’s another shout-out to Charisma Carpenter,
    the Joan Collins of the new millenium.

  • She would have been a fantastic mother for Juliet! Didn’t Charisma Carpenter’s character also have a lurid affair with Logan Echolls on “Veronica Mars”? She plays a fantastic “villain” and it would put her not only back with SMG but with Jason Dohring. Andrea Roth will do an awesome job, but I would love to see Charisma Carpenter on this show in some capacity.
