It’s a year of big guest stars on ABC sitcoms. Robin Givens and Alicia Silverstone are coming to “Suburgatory,” while Ellen Barkin and Bobby Cannavale will make appearances on “Modern Family.” Sources confirm that “Happy Endings” is the next sitcom looking to draw in additional viewers with a guest role from Faith Prince.
Prince, an established Broadway star, will appear on the January 4 episode following the holidays. Reports suggest that Prince will play Roz Liebowitz, Penny‘s childhood therapist. Not only will fans likely see Penny trying to dig through her problems once again, but this character will also give us a peak into Penny’s past.
The starlet is best known for her role as Adelaide in “Guys and Dolls,” which she won the 1992 Tony and Drama Desk Award for Best Actress in a Musical. She was also nominated for a Tony for her role as Ella Peterson in “Bells Are Ringing.” In 2009 she took over the role as Ursula in the Broadway interpretation of “The Little Mermaid.”
Though she is best known for her stage work, she did appear in 1995’s “High Society,” “Spin City” and “Huff.” Fans may recognize her also from her guest roles on “Remington Steele,” “Ugly Betty,” “Law & Order,” “Drop Dead Diva,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “House.”
After her appearance on “Happy Endings,” look for Prince on stage with Jason Graae, Debbie De Coudreaux, Tyler McKenna, Sharon Rietkerk and Kelly Sanchez at the 42nd Street Moon's The Best of Times. This is a salute to famed Broadway composer, Jerry Herman. The event is at the Alcazar Theatre on January 26.
