Melody Thomas Scott, Nikki Newman of “The Young and the Restless,” is set to make a primetime appearance on another CBS show. The actress will appear on the sitcom, “The Crazy Ones,” which stars Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar.
TV Guide’s Michael Logan broke the scoop, and revealed that Melody will be playing a librarian who is a complete and total lush. Her scenes will be with both Robin and Sarah, and described her experience on the set to Logan:
“It came completely out of the blue. I was originally called in for another role on the show and was told by the producers that I was too young, which was fabulous! But they thought Robin and I would play off each other well, so they created a role for me in a different episode. It’s a great character and not at all glamorous like Nikki. This poor girl is really trying to be sexy but she’s just not cutting it — and she has no qualms about pulling out her flask during library hours.”
Look for Melody Thomas Scott to air on “The Crazy Ones” sometime in mid-April on CBS.
