via press release:
Award-winning actors Jane Seymour, Beau Bridges and Peter Weller are set to guest-star on TNT’s hit series Franklin & Bash.
In the episode entitled Viper, Seymour will play Colleen Bash, the freewheeling, indecisive Earth Mom of Mark Paul Gosselaar’s Peter Bash. Seymour played the title role on the hit series Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman for six seasons, earning a Golden Globe(R) for her performance. She previously earned a Golden Globe for her performance in the television adaptation of East of Eden and an Emmy(R) for the television movie Onassis: The Richest Man in the World.
In the episode “For Those About to Rock,” Bridges will reprise his role as Leonard Franklin, the estranged father of Breckin Meyer’s Jared Franklin. The pair will go up against each other in court. Bridges is a 14-time Emmy nominee, winning the award three times for his work in The Second Civil War, The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom and Without Warning: The James Brady Story, the latter two also winning him Golden Globes.
The same episode will also feature Weller as Bert Mazzani, a reclusive rock star whose estranged son is being evicted from the Hollywood music club he created. Weller is known for his big-screen work in the blockbuster RoboCop and the indie film Naked Lunch. He was recently nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award as a member of the cast of Dexter. In 1994, he earned an Oscar(R) nomination as director of the short film Partners.
