Now that she has screwed Mer's head (mostly) on straight on
, Amy Madigan is teaming up with longtime gal pal Holly Hunter on the third Season 2 episode of TNT's
. "She was kinda brilliant," Hunter says of Madigan's guest-star turn as the wife of a murdered cop. "She made me really step up to the plate."
Hunter and Madigan go back a ways, having previously costarred in the TV-movie
Roe vs. Wade
(1989). To reunite on Grace, Hunter says, "was such a privilege because she's been a friend of mine for years. And to play opposite her... she was so electrifying!" -
