Miriam Shor was a hoot to watch as the crafty and wicked Cricket Caruth-Reilly on ABC's too-short-lived GCB, opposite Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth's Carlene Cockburn. And now the stage and screen favorite is going to be frenemies with another awesome Tony winner: Sutton Foster! According to Deadline.com, Shor is joining Foster's previously announced TV Land pilot Younger as a series regular.
Written and produced by Sex and the City creator Darren Star, Younger features Foster as a New Jersey divorced single mother in her early 40s who kickstarts her career by passing herself off as a 20-something, landing a hot job at a New York City publishing company. Shor will play Diana, the high-strung head of PR for Passion Press. Known as “Trout Pout,” Diana is an arrogant woman who gets ahead by standing on the shoulders of her underlings.
Shor made a splash with her performance in the 1998 off-Broadway production of the rock musical Hedwig and the Angry Inch and in the 2001 film adaptation of the same name. Her TV credits include The Good Wife, Swingtown, My Name Is Earl, The West Wing, Damages, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Bored to Death, Royal Pains and Mildred Pierce.
