Jacki Weaver to play Rebel Wilson's mom on Super Fun Night

Monday, September 16, 2013 4:24 PM | Anonymous

BREAKING: Two-time Oscar nominee Jackie Weaver is set to play Rebel Wilson's mom on ABC's upcoming comedy "Super Fun Night". 

Weaver will play Pamela Boubier, Kimmie's (Wilson) overbearing mother who comes to town for her other daughter's engagement party. A former Broadway showgirl, Pamela still carries herself as if she's about to go on stage at any moment. 

“When I was at university, as part of my theatre major, I would go and watch Jacki perform in these amazing plays in Sydney,” Wilson said in a statement. “She’s an inspiration to me and an Australian classic,” she continued. 

“She can be funny and real and super dramatic … often all at the same time. My real mother is going to be so impressed to find out Jacki is playing my mother. I know my sisters are fighting over which of them Ashley Tisdale is playing. I can’t wait to get on-set with all these lovely ladies and crush it!” 

Super Fun Night premieres on US network ABC October 2nd.
