Cougar Town Casts Ellie's Mother

at . Comments

Susan Blakely has been cast in a horribly exciting new role.

The veteran actress (Men of a Certain Age, Southland) will appear this season on Cougar Town, TV Line confirms, portraying Ellie's mother and initially making a positive impression on Ellie's friends. But that won't last very long.

An ABC source says those around Ellie will quickly understand why she refers to her mom as a "horrible person."

No premiere date has been set for Cougar Town yet. Insiders hint that it may air prior to 2012, however.

Cougar Town Quotes

Laurie: Jules told me never to ask, but why do you call me Jellybean?
Ellie: Well JB, when Jules first hired you I thought you were so simple minded she could convince you that Jellybeans were more valuable than gold and subsequently pay you in Jellybeans. This concept was eventually shorted into your nickname, Jellybean.

Grayson: You can't stand to be along for a second can you?
Jules: That is ridiculous
Grayson: So why did you go out with father time?
Jules: Because I am a history buff and I haven't been in a car with only a lap belt in a long time
