TVLine has learned exclusively that John Heard (The Sopranos, Home Alone) has been cast as the father of Alyssa Milano’s Savi. But if their reunion results in tears, they probably won’t be the happy kind.

As previously reported in Ask Ausiello, Episode 2.9 of ABC’s addictive sudser will introduce us to Savi’s dad Bruce, a “painfully awkward accountant” who decades ago walked out on Savi and her mom Janet (JoBeth Williams) and “cut them both out of his life like an abscess.” Savi, who ended Season 1 grappling with the paternity of her own unborn baby, will reportedly show up unexpectedly on Bruce’s doortstep in Paso Robles, Calif., which prompts him to blurt out “a cruel fact of their relationship that he should have kept to himself.”

(It’s worth noting that while Savi’s sister Joss is also a central character on the show, they only have a biological mother — JoBeth Williams’ Janet — in common.)
