Jaime Pressly Joins 'Mom', Steven Pasquale Lands 'Good Wife' Role


Jaime Pressly


The 'My Name Is Earl' alumna will appear on the comedy in a major arc, while the former 'Rescue Me' star will appear in two episodes of the critically-acclaimed drama.

Two CBS shows are casting actors as guest stars. Comedy "Mom" has booked Jaime Pressly for a major recurring role in its sophomore run, while veteran drama "The Good Wife" has recruited Steven Pasquale to appear in two episodes of its sixth season.

Pressly, known for playing Joy Turner on NBC's sitcom "My Name Is Earl", will recur as a newly sober woman who at times is more than Christy (Anna Faris) can handle. Co-creator and executive producer Chuck Lorre teases, "We have a great storyline this year."

"They lose the house," he goes on dishing. "They stay at a motel for a while. They stay with [new series regular] Mimi Kennedy's Marjorie and the cats for a while. It's a struggle. Christy is trying to keep her family afloat and keep her daughter afloat after the adoption. Her daughter is not doing well emotionally. It's hard. And she's also trying to help Jamie Pressly's character, who is trying to get sober. She's a woman with a lot of money and not much else going on."

Kevin Pollak additionally will return to reprise his role as Alvin, Bonnie's (Allison Janney) boyfriend.

As for "Rescue Me" alum Pasquale, his role is a campaign expert that Eli enlists to help Alicia with her campaign should she decide to run. It's unclear what Pasquale's arrival means as Alicia is mulling over the possibility to run for state's attorney.

"Mom" season 2 premieres Monday, September 29 at 8:30 P.M., while "The Good Wife" season 6 is set to debut Sunday, September 2 at 9 P.M.
