PETER FACINELLI, FRED WILLARD AND MARILU HENNER ADDED TO THE CAST OF HALLMARK CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE 'MULLIGAN,' SLATED TO AIR IN 2011
It's a family affair for "Mulligan" starring Jennie Garth ("90210"), a Hallmark Channel Original Movie penned by her husband, Peter Facinelli ("Twilight," "Nurse Jackie"), who has also just joined the cast along with Fred Willard ("Modern Family") and Marilu Henner ("Taxi"). Garth and Facinelli's daughters will also be taking part in small roles.
A disgruntled actor (Ethan Eriskon, "Melrose Place") wants to do more than play "Mulligan the Rabbit" on a children's TV show and discovers life can change in a heartbeat when he causes a car accident with single mother, Annie (Garth). Facinelli has signed on as Eddie's mooching childhood buddy, Scott. Willard joins the cast as Eddie's slick agent, Dick while Henner will portray Annie's well-meaning mother.
