Sharon Lawrence Cast as Izzie's Mom on Grey's Anatomy

TV Casting News: Izzie's Mom and More

Today brings a few interesting tidbits of TV casting news, including who's playing Izzie's mom on Grey's Anatomy and what's next for Moonlight's ex-vampire, so read on!

  • Sharon Lawrence, who was most recently seen playing the often-absent mom to Megan on Privileged, is scrubbing into Grey's Anatomy as the mom to Izzie Stevens. Izzie's mystery medical ailment finally has a name, but it seems that Iz won't be taking much comfort from her mom's unexpected late-April visit.
  • Meanwhile, CBS has finally found a role for its former vampire king, Alex O'Loughlin. He'll be playing the lead organ transplant surgeon in the network's medical pilot Three Rivers. Justina Machado of Six Feet Under is also attached to the show.
  • And on Wisteria Lane, there's a new — but old — woman on the block who reportedly will figure prominently into Edie's storyline in the coming weeks. Character actress Gloria LeRoy will play a neighborhood fixture whom we meet next month. The 77-year-old actress will factor into the story in a way "that involves an increasingly cuckoo Orson, a violent act, and a touch of dementia. And not necessarily in that order." Hmmm . . .

Your thoughts on Izzie's mom, Wisteria's coming twists, and O'Loughlin's return to the small screen?

i think that it's a good choice for izzie's mom, the only thing though is that there's so much that they talked about during season one, that i'm not sure they'll stay true to the dynamic...we'll have to see though.

I was actually really hoping they would cast Allison Janney as Izzie's mom. I'm sure Sharon Lawrence will be fine, but I just think Allison would be sooooo much better.
