Major Crimes: Sherilyn Fenn, Missi Pyle Cast in Dead TV-Superhero Mystery

TNT’s Major Crimes is aiming an arrow squarely at TV’s superhero craze, in an episode that guest-stars Twin Peaks favorite Sherilyn Fenn.

In the newly supersized Season 5’s eighth episode (airing Aug. 15), Flynn and Tao investigate the mysterious overdose of Chris Walker, a young actor who had been starring as the hero “Gold Storm” on a TV series. TVLine has learned exclusively that Fenn, whose more recent TV credits include Shameless and Ray Donovan, will play the deceased’s fiercely controlling, cherry stem-knotting and recently fired “momager.”Stephanie-Courtney

In the same episode, Missi Pyle (The Soul Man, Gone Girl) will guest-star as Chris’ older, hard-partying widow, while Stephanie Courtney (Mad Men, Progressive’s “Flo”) plays a physician whose practice seems to entirely consist of doling out addictive prescriptions to celebs.

That’s three easy suspects right there!

Major Crimes Season 5 is currently airing Mondays at 10/9c.

    Never watched Twin Peaks but loved Ms. Fenn on Gilmore Girls as both characters [Jess’s step mom and April’s mom].
