What brings the star of the eponymous ‘Mary Tyler Moore Show‘ back into the erstwhile Sue Ann Nivens’ orbit? Well, in the Season 2 premiere, airing January 19, Moore will guest-star as someone who somehow gets involved with Elka, White’s character who got sent to the slammer in the Season 1 finale, Deadline reports.
While this represents Moore and White’s first shared acting gig in decades, the ladies did appear on TV together in September 2008, as part of the Primetime Emmy Awards. Shortly before that, they took part in a NATAS event that marked White’s 60 years in the biz and assembled a larger bunch of the ‘MTM’ cast.
Will you be tuning in for the Moore/White reunion in ‘Cleveland’? What sort of “in jokes” would you like to see sneaked into the script to wink at the actresses’ previous show together?
