BEN AND KATE: Brittany Snow to Guest Star
November 9, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
The BEN AND KATE guest cast is expanding (again!): a rep for the show confirms that Brittany Snow will appear on the Fox comedy for a couple of episodes in 2013. According to E! (who was first to report the casting news), Snow will play Lila, a love interest for Echo Kellum’s Tommy.
What interests me most about this is what BEN AND KATE creator Dana Fox said recently about how she viewed a potential Tommy and Kate coupling: “I think what’s interesting about Echo [Kellum (Tommy)] is he’s so funny and so great and so loving and such a puppy dog, but he’s a real man. He’s somebody who you’d be lucky to get that guy as your boyfriend. So that’s one of the things I’m exploring with Kate and Tommy: there’s this guy who has always been there and always loved you and you look at him and think I can take it for granted because it’ll always be there. And then at a certain point, that guy goes, “I really love you, and if you don’t love me, I’m not going to waste the rest of my life for this.” And he gets a girlfriend and you’re watching this guy be the best boyfriend in the world to somebody and you’re wondering, ‘Did I miss something here? Did I make a mistake?’ So that’s the stuff we’re going to put out over the next year.”
Will Lila’s arrival perhaps signal a shift for Kate? We’ll have to tune in to find out…
BEN AND KATE airs Tuesdays at 8:30 PM on Fox.
