Mom fans, get ready to meet Dad!
Stand-up comic Kevin Pollak is set to guest-star as the long-lost father of Anna Faris' character on the CBS comedy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Pollak will play Alvin Biletnikoff, the boyfriend who abandoned Bonnie (Allison Janney) while she was in the hospital giving birth to Christy (Faris). Alvin now owns a body shop a few hours away from Napa and has grown kids of his own. Pollak will first appear on the freshman sitcom in January, but there is potential for him to return in additional episodes.
