Megan Mullally is making the rounds as a guest-star this fall. First she made an appearance on the season premiere of 30 Rock, and now she’s taking a turn on The New Adventures of Old Christine. Next week, Mullally will appear in the episode “Unidentified Funk.”
Mullally will play Margaret, a homophobic corporate representative from Christine’s gym, who threatens to shut the franchise down because Christine and Barb (Wanda Sykes) broke the “family values” clause when they got married.
My gym has a “family values” clause too. It goes like this: If you value your kids, keep them away from the weight machines.
The plot details of Mullally’s episode are sparse, but you can be sure there will be hijinks. Observe:
Did I say homophobia? Maybe the teaser was wrong.
I’ve always felt like Mullally is one of the most underrated actresses in Hollywood. She can sing and dance. She’s got a biting wit, great comedic timing, and she likes to kiss girls. On Will & Grace, Grace said she’d kissed Mullally’s Karen Walker more times than she could count. (“Now, when do I get to French kiss a girl? Come on, when? When?” she once asked Jack.)
If 30 Rock‘s awards luck continues, Mullaly will probably get an Emmy nod for her guest appearance on the show. She could add it to the two she won for Will & Grace. You know, in addition to the four Golden Globes and four Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.
“Unidentified Funk” airs Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Will you be watching?
