The Younger star will appear in the upcoming Netflix revival of Gilmore Girls, according to TVLine. Foster has a history with the series’ creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino: she starred in her short-lived ABC Family (now Freeform) comedy Bunheads.No official word yet on exactly who Foster will play, but it’s not impossible for the Broadway favorite to reprise her Bunheads performance as Michelle Simms. When she stopped by for Role Call, Foster revealed that was the role she would most love to do again. Stars Hollow, the fictional Connecticut hamlet where much of Gilmore Girls takes place, even has its own dance studio, run by fan favorite Miss Patty LaCosta (played by Liz Torres).A handful of original Gilmore Girls actors are lined up for the series’ next chapter, including Lauren Graham, Tony winner Kelly Bishop (who also starred in Bunheads), Alexis Bledel, Scott Patterson, Yanic Truesdale, Sean Gunn, Keiko Agena, Milo Ventimiglia and Matt Czuchry. Foster is the first addition to the cast who did not appear in the original WB (and later CW) incarnation.A Tony winner for Anything Goes and Thoroughly Modern Millie, Foster’s additional stage credits include Violet, Shrek, Young Frankenstein and The Drowsy Chaperone. Fans can currently catch her as 40-year-old-but-pretending-to-be-26 Liza Miller on TV Land’s Younger (and in GIF form in’s recaps). View Commentslast_img read more
