In the 9JKL episode “Make Thanksgiving Great Again,” the Roberts prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving together. When Josh (Mark Feuerstein) asks doorman Nick (Matt Murray) to pick up Nana Roberts from her nursing home, Nick returns with the wrong nana. And she’s not nice. She antagonizes everyone including Judy (Linda Lavin) who realizes that she also has a tendency to be critical.
The Wrong Nana is portrayed by Lois Smith. The 87-year-old actress is known for her roles on True Blood (Adele Stackhouse), ER (Gracie), One Life to Live (Aunt Betsy Cramer), and in the films Twister (Meg Greene), Dead Man Walking (Susan Sarandon’s mother, see link above), Fried Green Tomatoes (Mama Threadgoode), Five Easy Pieces (Jack Nicholson’s sister Partita Dupea), and East of Eden with James Dean and Jo Van Fleet (Anne), among many others. 9JKL airs Mondays at 9:30pm ON CBS, right after Superior Donuts, and right before Scorpion. You can also stream 9000+ episodes and live TV with a CBS All-Access free trial.
