Jane KaczmarekJane Kaczmarek knows a thing or two about playing an outspoken mom on sitcoms. She's taking that skill she honed on 'Malcolm in the Middle' to NBC's new series 'Whitney.'

According to Deadline, Kaczmarek will replace Beverly D'Angelo as mom to Whitney Cummings' title character. The Emmy nominated actress will appear on a recurring basis. D'Angelo played the role in the pilot episode sent to media outlets, but the scenes will be reshot with Kaczmarek in the role.

After 'Malcolm,' Kaczmarek moved to drama and appeared on TNT's 'Raising the Bar' as Judge Trudy Kessler.

Earlier this summer she appeared in an episode of FX's 'Wilfred.'

Elsewhere in the casting world, Bobby Cannavale is joining the cast of 'Nurse Jackie.' He'll appear billed as a special guest star for 10 episodes of Season 4. Cannavale will play a hospital administrator sent from the new bosses to improve All Saint's Hospital's efficiency and profitability.

Someone hire me. Entertainment industry would be a great place to work. I even have a reality show; I am unemployed so now that enables me to be a housewife. "Housewves of Stark County" I have a different perspective;
After volunteering for some organizations, my life is fantastic compared to some. So when I think I have it bad, my first thought, I have a place to sleep. Ever seen a homeless shelter where they really have no where to go? Next time you think you have it so bad, think of the fact that you have a place to come home to, food to eat, a car to get around. In most cases, even a family waiting for you to come home!
