at . Comments

Ready to meet another member of the Bennett family?

According to Entertainment Weekly, veteran actress Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives, True Blood, Grey's Anatomy) has been cast on a November episode as Sam's mother. An Oscar nominee, Woodard is only booked for one installment at the moment.

Last year, of course, fans were introduced to Sam's troubled sister.

What does this casting scoop mean for Private Practice Season 6, which kicks off on September 25? It's hard to say, especially considering the mysterious way in which Shonda Rhimes has hyped upcoming episodes.

The uber producer says every one will be special and unique.

I don't know Jarrod, I loved Corrine, amazing scenes. I'd love some of Corrine scenes. Plus I love Alfre Woodard, she's amazing.

If it has anything to do with Corrine, I think I'll be muting my TV with her scenes. Corrine drove me nuts last season.

I think Addie chose Sam, and the mother appears at the wedding... But I hope that I'm NOT right. Jaddison ftw!

Private Practice Quotes

A lot of men have a joy of seeing me naked. A lot! Well, not a lot... I mean.. 8, Well... 11.

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
