An Oscar winner is headed to Mike & Molly.

CBS has announced that Susan Sarandon will guest star on an upcoming episode of this sitcom, coming on board in the role of JC Small, one of Molly's literary heroes.

Described as "part JD Salinger with a touch William Faulkner and a sprinkle of Gore Vidal," Sarandon's character will possess a "tortured soul," according to a network press release and give Molly and her family quite the memorable lesson.

Mike & Molly will return at midseason.

The veteran actress, meanwhile, recurred on the final full season of The Big C and also recently appeared on 30 Rock as Frank's girlfriend.

I tuned in on Nov 2 2013 for the first time. I got to the conversation with Molly and Mike's mother concerning having a baby. Mike's mother stated that they may consider adoption. Her next statement she said she had rather they adopt Chinese as to an Appalachian teen white trash. I changed channels never to watch again. Shame on the writers.
