Curtin, repped by ICM Partners, will play Charlie’s cigarette-smoking mother-in-law, Louise, who, along with her husband, lives in his house and displays her relaxed attitude toward child-rearing when forced to babysit.
WME-repped Riggle has been recurring on Modern Family. Curtin, an original Saturday Night Live castmember who returned to the “Weekend Update” desk for the SNL 40 special, recently co-starred on CBS’ Unforgettable and recurred on TNT’s The Librarians.
