'Mom' casts Justin Long as love interest for Anna Faris; plus, Octavia Spencer to guest

Justin Long is going to get the hots for Mom.

Chuck Lorre, executive producer and creator of the new comedy from CBS,  announced today during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association press tour that Long has been cast as a love interest for Anna Faris’ Christy, a newly sober single mom at the center of the series.

“That’s going to come up in the first few episodes,” Lorre said of the character. “Poor bastard doesn’t know what he’s in for, but he’s going to be her first shot for a meaningful relationship.”

Meanwhile, Lorre also announced that Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer (The Help) would guest star in an early episode as “a woman who turns out to have bigger problems than Christy. So Christy gets perspective,” he said.

Mom, which also stars Allison Janney and Matt Hones, premieres on CBS Sept. 23.
