    I was all ‘who’s tom?’ and then I remembered, which is quintessentially what the cul de sac crew do every day..

  3. Sarabi says:

    Nice! I like her too, and I find Head Case to be absolutely hilarious!

  4. Scott says:

    Great casting and good for the Tom character too, very underused and very funny!

  5. JJ says:

    Can’t wait for this!

  6. mia says:

    Awesome, I really like Tom. And this wouldn’t be his first love interest…he has children which suggests he had love at one point :P

  7. Lorie says:

    Great choice!

  8. Luis says:

    You go, Tom! Go get you some!

  9. Tj says:

    There is just something about her that doesn’t appear to me, perhaps it’s just my long standing crush on her husband but I know she’s very good friends with Bill & Christa so… it’s not a surprise they cast her.

    Oops “appeal” – should never blindly trust the iphone ;)

  11. BigMike says:

    Couldn’t find a better picture of her? She looks like she’s in pain in that shot!

  12. JDHetherington says:

    Is Tom going to be a regular for Season 4? Didn’t they say that if they got picked up for Season 4, that they’d promote him?

  13. Ram510 says:

    I don’t think that Tom needs a love interest at this point, but I guess it works. Can’t wait to see how it all plays out

    I just want Barb to come back.
