Hedren, 82, has made a number of appearances on both the big and small screen over the past ten years. Most recently, Hedren guest starred in an episode of Raising Hope alongside her daughter, Melanie Griffith. Unfortunately for Hedren, her character didn’t make it.
Hopefully Hedren’s character on Cougar Town will have a little more luck. The legendary actress’ episode on the show airs at some point following Cougar Town‘s debut on TBS which is scheduled for January 8, 2013.
Here’s what TBS has to say about Hedren’s role:
“The cul de sac crew scheme to capture Tippi Hedren to cheer up Jules’ dad, Chick [Ken Jenkins]. From harassing a tour guide to stalking Tippi’s home, the crew will stop at nothing for Chick to have a glass of champagne with one of his favorite stars.”
Hedren isn’t the only celebrity appearance TBS has lined up for the fourth season of Cougar Town. Zap2It reported back in November that Shirley Jones, Alexandra Wentworth, and Gillian Vigman have all been confirmed as guest-stars.
In addition to Hedren’s numerous appearances in the entertainment industry over the past ten years, the actress also had an HBO movie made about her and her dealings with Hitchcock, who Hedren described as being “obsessed” with her.
