This week’s “Rake” episode welcomes Annie Mumolo (“Bridesmaids”) as gambling-addicted mom Carol, who defrauds an insurance company with an insidious scheme.

Star Greg Kinnear teases that in “Cancer,” Keegan defends “a woman who was able to procure a great deal of money from an insurance company because she claimed that her son was sick and had cancer and shaved his head. And he, uh, wasn’t sick. At all.”

Sounds like Carol should get together with Frank from “Shameless.”

“Cancer” also features professional skateboarder Tony Hawk making a cameo as himself. “Rake” airs Thursday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
