‘Ben and Kate’ spoilers: Jane Seymour pays a visit!

As someone who finds “Ben and Kate” to be one of the funniest new comedies of the season, this new makes us smile nearly as much as seeing Tommy and Kate almost have a moment on the show every week: we’re about to meet BJ’s mom!

According to a new report from TVLine, former Bond Girl Jane Seymour has been cast to play the role of the mother to Lucy Punch’s character, who is described as a smart and even “sexy” middle-class British woman who discovers that her daughter has not been completely honest with her about every aspect of her life.

With this casting, there are really two hopes that we have for the Fox sitcom:

1. Seymour’s appearance inspires fans of Bond, “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” or even “Wedding Crashers” to actually check out this show and improve some of its low ratings.

2. That she provides some memorable scenes that show us even more of BJ’s personality, and hopefully even breaks down some of her walls. We already know that she is clearly the zaniest character of the bunch and even at times a bad influence on Kate, but there has to be a reason that she ended up the way that she has in life.

Thanks in part to the Presidential election, “Ben and Kate” will not be on the air Tuesday night as is typically planned; instead, we will be waiting until next week to see some more adventures from this crazy brother / sister duo and their friends (which includes Lucy front and center).

What do you think about Seymour’s casting?
