UPDATED: Actress Melanie Griffith in Talks to Appear on ‘Raising Hope

According to E! Online film actress Melanie Griffith is in final talks to appear on Raising Hope this fall.

And who will she be playing, you may ask? Well, she’ll show up as none other than Sabrina’s (Shannon Woodward) mom and she won’t be around for just one episode but rather for multiple episodes.

It seems that FOX wouldn’t comment on the casting so there are no details on her character, but given that fans know Sabrina comes from a rich family, it can easily be speculated that her mom could be a spoiled housewife; but only time will tell if that is true.

Among the box office films for which Griffith has starred include ‘Working Girl’, ‘Pacific Heights’, ‘The Bonfires of the Vanities’, ‘Shining Through’ and ‘Mulholland Falls’. She has also made TV appearances in the short-lived comedy ‘Twins’ and guest roles on ‘Nip/Tuck’ and ‘Viva Laughlin’.

‘Raising Hope’ will return for its third season on FOX on October 2.

UPDATED: Just as the news broke that Melanie Griffith would be appearing as Sabrina’s mom on ‘Raising Hope’, more news broke that Melanie’s own mother – the legendary Tippi Hedren herself (she starred in the classic Hitchcock film ‘The Birds’) – would be playing Sabrina’s grandmother.
