Lori Loughlin's drunk, former movie star, monster-in-law on The CW's 90210 has been cast and it's none other than soap vet Jessica Walter (Love of Life, One Life to Live). Walter is perhaps best known for her rip-roaring turn as Lucille Bluth on the hilariously-underrated Arrested Development. As much as I was rooting for Donna Mills (ex-Abby Ewing, Knots Landing) for the part, I can't imagine anyone better than Walter to play an aging, Beverly Hills lush who was once a Hollywood starlet, yet now has teenage grandchildren. Daytime could really learn a lot from this primetime soap in creating juicy roles for women of a certain age.
