A new Anna Faris role has been provided by the newest upcoming Chuck Lorre sitcom. Faris, primarily known for various movie roles, will start appearing on TV in the new show called "Mom" later this year.
A Jan. 4 report from Zap2It.com indicates that Faris will have the lead role for the show. The script for "Mom" was done by Chuck Lorre. He reportedly co-wrote it with Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker, the producers of "Two and a Half Men." If the new series gets the green light for this coming fall, it will make for a total of four CBS sitcoms from Lorre on the network at once.
Other shows Lorre is involved in include "The Big Bang Theory," "Mike and Molly," and the aforementioned "Two and a Half Men." The good news for Faris in terms of taking on this role is that she also just became a mom herself, as she and her actor-husband Chris Pratt had their first child, a son named Jack, in August of 2012.
Faris is known for starring in a variety of comedy films including "House Bunny," and multiple "Scary Movie" films. Among her TV acting credits are a hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live" in 2011, and multiple appearances in guest roles on "Friends" in 2004, as well as HBO's "Entourage" in 2007. Faris has also voiced a character on the animated series "King of the Hill" between 2002 and 2004.
