Lauren Tom Signs On for "Intense" Supernatural Role

at . Comments

Lauren Tom has signed on for Supernatural Season 8. We're just not sure in what capacity.

The actress - who voices Amy Wong on Futurama and, of course, delayed the Ross/Rachel hookup on Friends for a few weeks as Julie back in the day - will appear on at least one episode of The CW cult favorite in a mysterious role The Hollywood Reporter describes as "intense."

Look for Tom to portray the overbearing mother of a key character and have the potential to recur.

Not much else is known about the character, but network sources say her entrance will be "dramatic," which is saying a lot on Supernatural.

The series shifts to 9 p.m. on Wednesdays and premieres on October 3 following Arrow.

well could it be the prophet kevin plus maybe we could bring back the so called chuck or aka god and thats all i have to say about that


Kevin's mother for sure. My bet is that they're going to make her like Mrs. Kim, the funny/scary/overbearing Asian mother from Gilmore Girls (Jared's old show).


I thought Amelia's mother too but someone told me the best guess is replacing the actress who played Kevin's mother.


Perhaps the mother of Sam's new love interest?


Hmmmm. They didn't really give us much info here. I wonder whose mom she could be. My first thought was Kevin's mom(okay that may be racist, but I'm Asian too)but I think they already have an actress for Kevin's mom. Maybe she's the mom of a new character? I guess we'll find out.
