Jane Seymour to Guest Star on ABC's BACK IN THE GAME
TVGuide.com reports that Jane Seymour will appear in an upcoming episode of ABC's freshman comedy BACK IN THE GAME. The 'Doctor Quinn' star will be featured in the 12th episode of the show, set to begin filming next week.
Seymour will portray Ms. Crosby, described as "feisty and authoritative, and is the strictest, meanest teacher ever. Nicknamed "The Eviscerator," she takes a liking to The Cannon (James Caan) and asks him out on a date. The feeling isn't mutual, so The Cannon kicks her to the curb - but needless to say, Ms. Crosby doesn't handle rejection well."
Back in the Game airs Wednesdays at 8:30/7:30c on ABC.
About the show:
Terry Gannon Jr. (Maggie Lawson) was an All Star softball player until life threw her a couple of curve balls -- a baby, a lost college scholarship and a cheating loser for a husband. After striking out on her own, Terry and her son, Danny (Griffin Gluck), move back in with her estranged father, Terry Sr., aka "The Cannon" (James Caan). The Cannon is an opinionated, beer-guzzling, ex-athlete who never quite made the cut either as a single father or professional baseball player. As hard as Terry tries to keep Danny away from the sports-driven lifestyle that corrupted her youth, Danny continues to be interested in baseball, if only to gain attention from his new crush, Vanessa (Kennedy Waite). Danny's stunning lack of baseball skills (he doesn't even know which hand the mitt goes on) makes him the laughing stock of the field, and of his grandfather's living room. When Danny and a group of other athletically-challenged hopefuls fail to make the local youth baseball team, coached by Terry's new rival, Dick Slingbaugh (Ben Koldyke), Danny's disappointment forces Terry to face her past. So when Lulu (Lenora Crichlow), the wealthy parent of another child who didn't make the cut, volunteers to finance a new team for the rejected kids, Terry reluctantly offers to coach the team of misfits.
"Back in the Game" stars James Caan as Terry "The Cannon" Gannon, Sr., Maggie Lawson as Terry Gannon, Jr., Ben Koldyke as Dick Slingbaugh, Griffin Gluck as Danny Gannon, Lenora Crichlow as Lulu Lovette, JJ Totah as Michael Lovette, Kennedy Waite as Vanessa Leeds, Cooper Roth as David Slingbaugh and Brandon Salgado as Dudley Douglas.
