Hot in Cleveland Exclusive: Liza Minnelli Cast as [Spoiler Alert]!

Watch your back, Betty White! You won’t be the only living legend appearing in Season 3 of TV Land’s Hot in Cleveland: The comedy’s just scored Liza freakin’ Minnelli!

The bad news is that the Oscar winner’s just signed on for one episode — at least for now. But the good news is that it sounds like a great part: Judy Garland’s 65-year-old daughter will be playing the agent of down-and-damn-close-to-out actress-of-a-certain-age Victoria Chase (Wendie Malick).

Since Minnelli was such a hoot as Lucille 2 on Arrested Development — not to mention the whole “living legend” thing — this seems like a swell bit of news to start 2012 with, wouldn’t you say?

    Great score for Hot In Cleveland! Minnelli was hilarious on Arressted Development and will hopefully continue. She may have been tabloid fodder for many years but she’s famous for a reason and that reason is she’s talented!

    I think Liza is a big enough star that referring to her as “Judy Garlands 65 year old daughter” wasnt necessary. Shes a living legend! Cant wait to see Betty White and Liza together!

    Oh boy, can’t wait for that episode. You already know it’s going to be one of the best….and every episode is “one of the best”. Hot in Cleveland is a fantastic show…all the ladies are wonderful & funny. I can’t think of one episode that I did not care for. Liza is pretty funny in her own right and this will be great too. Can’t wait…love them all.
