On Masters of Sex, the parents of Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan) show up for an unannounced visit. If you think Virginia’s mother must be a liberal-thinking swinger you are wrong. Virginia’s mother grills her daughter about her controversial work and her lifestyle at home. The mother is portrayed by Frances Fisher.
Virginia’s father is portrayed by veteran actor Michael O’Keefe. He’s been in everything from Maude and M*A*S*H to Roseanne (Fred, Jackie’s husband) and most recently Homeland (John Redmond). But the role he might be recognized for most is as the lovable caddy Danny Noonan in the cult classic movie Caddyshack with funnymen Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and Ted Knight. Masters of Sex airs Sundays at 10pm on Showtime.
