Now in its second season, the CBS comedy series Mom is an irreverent and outrageous take on true family love and dysfunction. Single mom Christy (Anna Faris) has been sober for a year now, and is still struggling to raise two children in a world full of temptations and pitfalls. Testing her sobriety on a daily basis is her formerly estranged mother, Bonnie (Allison Janney), who is now back in Christy’s life and eager to share insights into her daughter’s many mistakes.
During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Anna Faris talked about what it was like to return for Season 2, how much she’s enjoyed sharing this experience with Allison Janney, learning the world of a multi-cam series, what’s most surprised her about the journey that she’s taken with this character, the fun of dream sequences, and what’s still to come for Christy and her loving but dysfunctional family. She also talked about how awesome it would be, if they could find a way for her character to be a part of the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs TV series that’s being developed, developing a comedy called Vacation Friends that she hopes to shoot with her husband, Chris Pratt, next summer, and why she’s interested in playing characters who are messes and losers. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
