According to Deadline.com, stage and screen star Blythe Danner is set to guest star on NBC's new series 'Up All Night,' as Christina Applegate's mother.
Danner first appeared on stage with the Theater Company of Boston and the Trinity Square Repertory Company (now Trinity Repertory Company) in Providence, Rhode Island. She first gained national attention at age 25 by winning the Theatre World Award for her performance in the Lincoln Center Rep's production of The Miser. In 1970, she appeared in her first film role, in a television production of Dr. Cook's Garden. She was the toast of Broadway when she created the adorable ingenue in Butterflies Are Free for which she won a Tony Award in 1970 (a role Goldie Hawn played in the film).
Danner is more recently known for her role opposite Robert De Niro in the 2000 comedy hit Meet the Parents, and its sequels, Meet the Fockers and Little Fockers.
'Up All Night' premieres September 21 at 8pm on NBC.
