Bunheads is once again dipping into the Gilmore Girls talent pool.
Liza Weil, who played Rory Gilmore’s scene-stealing pal Paris, will guest-star on the ABC Family dramedy as the relative of another socially awkward character, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Weil will appear in the Jan. 14 episode as Milly, the sister of Stacey Oristano’s Truly. Unfortunately, the two siblings aren’t on the best of terms.
In addition to Bunheads creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s late WB/CW series, Weil credits include Scandal, Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy and In Plain Sight.
Other former Stars Hollow (and Stars Hollow-adjacent) residents to have visited the show’s fictional Paradise during Season 1: Kelly Bishop (Fanny; GG’s Emily), Rose Abdoo (Sam; GG’s Gypsy), Gregg Henry (Rico; GG’s Mitchum Huntzberger), Chris Eigeman (Conor; GG’s Jason “Digger”) and Sean Gunn (Bash; GG‘s Kirk).
Bunheads returns Monday, Jan. 7 at 9/8c.Follow @VladaGelman
