If you've ever wondered who brought Nip / Tuck's wild Kimber into the world, you'll soon meet her - and she'll be played by Melanie Griffith.
The Working Girl actress will play Brandie, Kimber's beautiful and considerate mother, who visits her ex-pornstar daughter from Wisconsin, a show insider confirms exclusively to TVGuide.com. (Griffith couldn't be better cast in terms of looks - her resemblance to Kelly Carlson, who plays Kimber, is striking.)
Brandie will be joined by Les, her too-tan, on-again-off-again car-salesman boyfriend of six years. Les, played by Robin Thomas (Another World, Who's the Boss), ignites insta-hate from Christian (Julian McMahon). The breast-cancer-battling doc sees too much of his own abuse of women - especially Kimber - in Les's treatment of Brandie.
Griffith's arc begins in the FX drama's seventh and final season. No airdate has been set for it or Season 6.
