Yeah, it's pretty much safe to assume that The Big C will NOT have to worry about any kind of sophomore slump!
We reported yesterday that both Alan Alda and Hugh Dancy had signed up for roles on the Laura Linney Showtime dramedy's second season, and right on the heels of that, it was announce that our beloved Parker Posey will also be appearing in four episodes!
According to sources, the actress will be playing Poppy, an older woman who develops an interesting relationship with Linney's character's son, played by Gabriel Basso. Meanwhile, it's been revealed that Dancy will play Lee, a cancer patient who becomes friends with Linney's character while they take part in an experimental drug trial!
Excellent! Both parts sound pretty effing inneresting!
And both of them are MORE than capable, so we cannot wait to see them really stick their teeth into the roles!
It's gonna be GOOD.
What do U think?? Will U be watching The Big C when it comes back in June??
