Sassy Michael Ausiello has once again got the scoop: the divine Kelly Bishop (Emily Gilmore on Gilmore Girls) will be featured in a multi-episode arc of NBC’s hospital drama Mercy. Kelly will play a patient of Jamie Lee Kirshner’s character, Sonia, named Elaine. I can only hope that “Elaine” is half as entertaining to watch as some of Emily Gilmore’s best one-liners.
Kelly’s last turns on TV were three episodes of Law and Order: SVU and one episode of Army Wives. Are you excited to see Kelly back on the screen? I am! Emily was always a guilty pleasure (I know I should have been rooting for Lorelai) and Kelly just seems like such a class act of an actress, I’m happy to support her.
