The Young and the Restless vixen Melody Thomas Scott is taking a break from the drama of Genoa City to guest star on The Crazy Ones. TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan is reporting Scott has landed a role on the CBS comedy. She will play a librarian who can't hold her liquor. Sound familiar? The actress will mix things up with Robin Williams and All My Children alum Sarah Michelle Gellar.
According to Scott:
I was originally called in for another role on the show and was told by the producers that I was too young, which was fabulous! But they thought Robin and I would play off each other well, so they created a role for me in a different episode. It's a great character and not at all glamorous like Nikki. This poor girl is really trying to be sexy but she's just not cutting it — and she has no qualms about pulling out her flask during library hours.
CBS has picked up the Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendal Hart, All My Children) comedy The Crazy Ones for a full season by giving it a back nine order, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The comedy also stars former One Life to Live star Amanda Setton (ex-Kimberly Andrews), former As the World Turns star James Wolk (a sailor) and features Days of Our Lives' Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan).
The Tiffany network also ordered full seasons of The Millers and Mom.
"We’re proud of CBS' leadership position in comedy and excited to build on it with the back nine pickups of these three new comedies," said CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler. "These series are creatively distinct, continue to improve each week and are led by strong showrunners, writing and production staffs, and feature amazingly talented casts."
