'Suburgatory' Taps Malin Akerman to Play Tessa's Mom

Suburgatory is primarily about the relationship between a single-dad and his particularly precocious teenage daughter. Since our species (currently) demands both male and female genetic material, the viewer knew there had to be a mom out there somewhere. That mom will be Malin Akerman and is described as a singer-songwriter who's never been a part of Tessa's life. She'll appear in at least two episodes. Akerman's hiring comes after Erinn Hayes joined the cast of Guys With Kids and Rob Corddry was to cast as a guest star on Happy Endings and a reoccurring on Ben & Kate. Adding in the fact that Henry Winkler is likely back shooting some Barry Zuckerkorn scenes and things are really coming up Chidrens Hospital.

    Wow. Really bad casting decision. Tessa is in her late teens and Ackerman is what in her early 30s and looks like she's in her 20s? Did she have Tessa when she was 13?
