Casting News - March 7, 2018

Amazon's Homecoming and CBS' Mom.

  • Tony and Grammy winner Patti LuPone will appear in an upcoming episode of the comedy's fifth season. Her recent television credits include a starring role on Showtime's Penny Dreadful and a guest appearance in The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.
  • She will play Rita, the demanding new owner of the building that Bonnie (Allison Janney) manages. She is a bit of a live wire. Freshly divorced, she's either barking orders or sharing way too much about her personal life.
  • Alex Karpovsky will co-star on the upcoming drama starring Julia Roberts, Bobby Cannavale and Stephan James. He starred for five seasons in HBO's Girls.
  • He will play Craig, who works at the Homecoming facility and helps coach the clients through various real-life scenarios using improvisation as part of their rehabilitation into civilian life. He's often frustrated when the clients don't take the process seriously, but he's excited to finally put his three years of improv training to use.
