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.
