  • I’ve loved Elizabeth Perkins ever since Weeds began! Such a great actress. I hope her character is a bitch like Celia was. If so, I’ll be all over this show when it premieres!

    • I love EP. I wouldn’t mind seeing her paired with Jim Belushi again [About Lat Night]. They worked well together.

  • Seriously? She does not look old enough to play Sarah Chalke’s mother.

  • Michael Keaton would be awesome as the dad. His roles in The Other Guys and Post Grad as the eccentric family man were hilarious. He made a great movie (The Other Guys) better and he made a horrible film (Post Grad) watchable.

    • If it gets past the pilot stage, they’ll probably change the name.
