A cute show just got cuter:
Molly Shannon, she of the wacky "Saturday Night Live" characters, is joining the cast of "Pushing Daisies" as a guest-star over several episodes, according to TV Guide.
What's she doing?
Shannon will make her first appearance in November as Dilly Balsam, the owner of a saltwater taffy shop that moves in right across from lead character Ned's bakery, the Pie Hole. Mmmmm ... taffy and pie.
This show is so precious, it hurts.
I mean, it's about a piemaker who brings his childhood sweetheart back from the dead, so its quirkiness is pretty much guaranteed from the start. But let's review the other guest actors cast in the show so far: Paul Reubens as Alfredo Aldarisio, a traveling salesman peddling homeopathic antidepressants, and the adorable Jayma Mays as a woman named Elsita who lives and works in a windmill. How darling!
