On the Mom episode “Snickerdoodle and a Nip Slip,” Christy (Anna Faris) catches the eye of Candace’s wealthy, handsome father Fred. While Candace (Sara Rue) and Christy’s ex Baxter (Matt Jones) are not happy with the idea of Christy and Fred dating, Christy’s mom Bonnie (Allison Janney) thinks there’s great potential and prays for it to work.
Candace’s father Fred is portrayed by Harry Hamlin. The Yale graduate is best known for his roles on Glee (Walter), Mad Men (Jim Cutler), Shameless (Lloyd “Ned” Lishman), Army Wives (Professor Chandler), Veronica Mars (Aaron Echolls), and L.A. Law (Michael Kuzak). You can see Hamlin next on the big screen in Penn Jillette’s horror movie, Director’s Cut. P.S. Hamlin is the husband of Lisa Rinna on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Mom airs Thursdays at 9pm on CBS.
