Scoop! Sergei & Channing Join Alyssa Milano In Lifetime Movie
by Matt Webb Mitovich Sep 15th, 2010
Emmy winner Stockard Channing (’The West Wing’) and Ivan Sergei (’Jack & Jill’) have been tapped to round out the cast of ‘Sundays At Tiffany’s,’ the recently announced Lifetime Original Movie headlined by Alyssa Milano.
Based on James Patterson’s best-selling novel, ‘Tiffany’s’ stars Milano as Jane, who as a young girl regularly accompanied her mother to the titular NYC landmark – with her imaginary friend “Michael” in tow.
Now a grown businesswoman, Jane is set to be married. The return of Michael (‘Brothers & Sisters’ Eric Winter) after a 23-year absence, however, threatens to throw Jane’s plans askew when he prompts his old “friend” to rethink her life path.
Channing will play Jane’s mother, Vivian, Fancast has learned, while Sergei has been cast as her fiance, Hugh. And yes, Milano and Sergei were on ‘Charmed‘ at the same time, so this marks a reunion of sorts for ol’ “Henry” and “Phoebe.”
‘Sundays at Tiffany’s’ – on which Milano is also a producer – is currently in production in Toronto.
