Gilmore Girls’ Kelly Bishop Joins Gilmore Girls Creator’s Show

Kelly Bishop and Priscilla Lopez attend the Off-Broadway opening night of "By the Way, Meet Vera Stark" at the Second Stage Theatre on May 9, 2011 in New York City.

Kelly Bishop has been cast alongside Sutton Foster in Amy Sherman-Palladino's Bunheads, EW reports, thus creating both a Gilmore Girls,  reunion (between Bishop, who played Emily Gilmore, Lorelai's mother and Rory's grandmother, on Sherman-Palladino's GG) and a powerful vortex of potential excellence: Could this show actually be really good? Bishop will play Foster's mother-in-law, who runs a small-town dance studio — which means we might get to see a little bit of Bishop's dance moves now and again. (She's still got it! She put Baby in a corner, but she's still got it.) Who knew ABC Family would be stocking up on Tony-award winners?
