Yet another terrific actor has joined the cast of the TV pilot “Rizzoli.”
I’ve long been a fan of Lorraine Bracco, so I’m delighted to learn that she’ll be playing Jane’s mother, Angela. If the pilot gets picked up for a series, I hope they’ll let her develop along the same character arc that’s been spinning out in my books. Because after her husband leaves her, Angela comes into her own — a wild new woman in low-cut dresses and spike heels. I can’t wait to see Lorraine in the part!
