ABC’s ‘Revenge’ season 2 spoilers: Gabriel Mann on dream mother casting

RevengeDoes anyone else want some more mommy drama on “Revenge” season 2? Given that we already have met maternal figures for both Emily Thorne and Victoria Grayson, it only makes some sense that executive producer Mike Kelley could continue the tradition by showing us another parent at some point later this season: Nolan’s mom, who did not exactly do the best job caring for him throughout his life.

While we don’t know for certain that this will actually happen, actor Gabriel Mann is promising now that if it does, he thinks he has the prefect actress more or less committed to the role. Speaking to TVLine on the subject,  he explained via an anecdote that should keep us guessing for some time:

“I don’t want to jinx it, [but] I had an actress — one of my favorite actresses on one of the most amazing shows that is no longer on the air, but I would say is quite iconic — approach me at a party about her love of [Revenge]. [She] said that since we’re doing all sorts of mama drama in Season 2 here, why don’t we meet Nolan’s mom?

“There was an unofficial Kim Basinger-like verbal agreement that she would be interested in signing up … So, I’m hoping that happens.”

Mann also claims that executive producer Mike Kelley smiled upon first hearing the idea, which is always a good sign for those of us desperate to try and see this happen … even if we don’t know who the mystery woman is just yet. (Personally, we’re hoping for Susan Lucci given her passion for the soap world.)

Who would you want to see playing Nolan’s mom? If you want to watch the first preview from the show’s upcoming return to ABC on January 6, you can do so over at the link here.
