On “Crazy,” Dawber will portray a daring travel writer, according to TV Guide. Williams’ character Simon meets and is attracted to Dawber’s character Lily when the two encounter each other at a book signing for Lily’s newest work titled “Ninety Countries, 90 Dances!”
“Crazy” stars Williams as unconventional advertising executive Simon and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star Sarah Michelle Gellar as his daughter who works at the same company. The show debuted this past fall and was picked up for a full first season by CBS soon after.
Williams turned to Twitter to express his happiness about the casting.
“The secret is out!” the actor tweeted. “Can’t wait to work with her again.”
Dawber and Williams’ sitcom ran on ABC from 1978 to 1982 and the alien character of Mork is often credited as being Williams’ breakout role. Dawber portrayed Mindy, Mork’s roommate and later wife. Actor Jonathan Winters played the couple’s child, who aged backwards.
According to TV Guide, the episode where Dawber and Williams meet will air sometime this spring.
