✿ Elizabeth Perkins will guest star in The Closer as the wife of the LAPD Police Commissioner in an episode airing on Monday, December 19th. Elizabeth’s character, Gail Meyers, gets into some serious trouble when she tries to cover up a potential scandal. Gail’s husband is played by the great Mark Moses, better known as Paul Young from Desperate Housewives. And look who else is joining the star-studded episode titled “Road Block”– Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Maggie Wheeler, who will play Gail’s friend who is interrogated by Brenda (Kyra Sedgwick).
✿ The Closer returns Monday, Nov. 28 at 9/8c on TNT.
MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET (Wednesday, 8:30 p.m., ABC Family): This is the 1994 “classic” version of the movie with Elizabeth Perkins and Mara Wilson. Oh sure, some say there’s no topping the 1947 version, but I say humbug! If Hollywood can remake The Karate Kid, they can remake this holiday classic — in color — as well.
