Sharon Lawrence

Brooke (Sophia Bush) is about to have some help planning her wedding to Julian (Austin Nichols) on ONE TREE HILL. Entertainment Weekly reports that Sharon Lawrence is joining the show in the recurring role of Julian’s mother.

There are no details about Lawrence’s role other than her character will be in town to assist in the wedding preparations. She will first appear in episode six, airing in late October.

Sharon Lawrence is quickly becoming the most sought after TV mom around. The NYPD Blue alumna received an Emmy nomination in 2009 for her role as Izzie’s (Katherine Heigl) mother in Grey’s Anatomy and she has so far appeared in two episodes of Drop Dead Diva as Deb’s grieving mom.

The eighth season of One Tree Hill premieres on the CW Tuesday, September 14 at 8pm/7 central. You can find all the fall premiere dates and times here.
