“Mike and Molly” is set to host an Oscar-winner.
Susan Sarandon is guest-starring in an upcoming episode of the CBS sitcom, the network announced on Thursday (Sept. 19).
Sarandon will play JC Small, a literary icon and idol of Molly’s (Melissa McCarthy). JC is part JD Salinger with a touch William Faulkner and a sprinkle of Gore Vidal, a beautiful mind and a tortured soul. This famed novelist gives Molly a lesson in writing that neither she nor her family are soon to forget.
“So excited to be working with Melissa McCarthy again, this time on Mike and Molly,” Sarandon tweeted. “But why am I always playing an alcoholic?”
“Mike and Molly” returns midseason on CBS.
