Mom Bumps Jaime Pressly to Series Regular for Season 3

Mom Jaime Pressly Cast

“Hi, my name is Jill” is a phrase Mom fans are likely to hear more often in Season 3: The CBS comedy has promoted guest-star Jaime Pressly to series regular.

The My Name Is Earl alum, who debuted as Christy’s newly sober pal earlier this season, will be a permanent part of the cast when the recently renewed sitcom returns in the fall, the network announced Friday.

Pressly’s Jill is rich and a handful — which proves problematic when Christy tries to help her out (but awfully fun when she needs a housesitter).

The actress most recently starred in TV Land’s Jennifer Falls, which was cancelled after one season.

    I love this show and don’t mind adding Jaime Pressly to the mix as she’s always fun (although, on a shallow level, I’m not crazy about her boyish haircut in ‘Mom’), but I do hope Mom doesn’t neglect its existing supporting cast any further. The restaurant characters are virtually nonexistent (if not for Gabriel’s tryst with Christy in recent episodes), and I imagine that Spencer Daniels’ Luke has been permanently written out as he’s only been one episode this season, which is a shame as I thought he was really funny. And more Baxter, please! Matt Jones is hilarious!!!!

      YES more Baxter please! I was just thinking this during last night’s episode where he only had 3 lines but all of them were hilarious. His delivery is so fantastic. JP has been a highlight for the show this season and I do hope that this means we will see more OS since *SPOILER* her character is living with JP’s character now *END SPOILER*.

    She was so funny during her My Name is Earl days.

    I’m glad to see the show building up its cast with these strong, funny ladies. I disagree with people upset by the restaurant staff members being pushed aside…I am all for it. Gabriel is fun but ultimately unimportant to the show. I am way more interested in the antics of Christy, Bonnie and their friends. If only Octavia Spencer could commit to a series regular position, that would be a killer line up. This is great news.

    Glad to see she’s got another gig, like her as a comedic actress. Don’t watch the show but I wish her the best.

    I really want to like this show, tried watching a few episodes…love Anna Faris and Allison Janney, but now they’re adding Jamie Pressly and I still cannot get behind this show. The premise is just too sad and depressing and as much as I want to laugh, I just can’t…I don’t know, I guess I’m probably taking this show wwwwaaaayyyy too seriously, but growing up in that life wasn’t funny to me.

    And the cancelation if Hart of Dixie becomes official in 3-2…

    They need to remove the restaurant and focus on specific characters. I love Jaime and Octavia and would adore it if they AA 5 were the sole focus.
