Linda Lavin having fun in new sitcom
Linda Lavin says she began reading the script for a new show called “9JKL” and halfway through she knew she was going to have a good time. At this stage of her career, the veteran entertainer says having fun is the big deciding factor. Lavin, who turns 80 in two weeks, plays the mother of series lead Mark Feuerstein. He stars as an actor down on his luck who finds himself living in an apartment next door to his meddling parents on one side and his brother’s family on the other side. “9JKL” debuts Monday on CBS.
