Fall TV Preview
Yael Grobglas Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

TVLine Items: Jane Star Visits Crazy Ex, The Flash Casts Magenta and More

The CW is staging a rare non-superhero crossover — sort of.

Jane the Virgin’s Yael Grobglas will guest-star on Season 2 of fellow CW dramedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, though she won’t be playing either Petra or her twin sister Anezka.

Grobglas instead will appear in Episode 4 as Trina, a dynamic businesswoman who hires Rebecca to represent her — and then sets the lawyer’s life on a surprising new course, EW.com reports.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 2 premieres Friday, Oct. 21 at 9/8c.

    My favorite Jane the Virgin star guest-starring on my favorite CW show? PERFECT! Very excited to see Yael channel a different kind of crazy. Hope she doesn’t stay Petra-fied for long!

    David Faustino has been doing mostly voice work for the past several years.

  4. Joey Padron says:

    Cool The Flash cast Joey King to be on the show in new season. They have some great actors joining the show in season 3. Glad David Faustino will be back on TV.

    Many many years ago, Manheim had an hysterically funny guest appearance on Will and Grace as a psychic. I will struggle not to giggle seeing her in a similar-ish role on a drama.
