News broke earlier this week that our final special guest panelist Ginger Gonzaga booked a recurring role opposite Jim Carrey on Showtime’s upcoming half-hour comedy series Kidding. She will play ‘Vivian,’ a cancer patient at the hospital where Jeff’s (Jim Carrey) wife works in this 10-episode series. She also booked a series regular role on ABC’s untitled Bobby Bowman pilot about a family who learns how to put up with a Dad who has mental illness. She will portray the adult version of the titular daughter character ‘Lola’ (Lilla Crawford).
Gonzaga is currently playing ‘Dana’ on NBC’s Champions (airing two episodes including the season finale happening tonight at 8/7c).
She is best known for her role as ‘Christy’ on the Duplass Brothers’ critical darling Togetherness on HBO, and as Jim Jefferies’s frustrated and immature girlfriend ‘Peggy’ in FX’s dark comedy Legit.

Her feature film debut was in Seth MacFarlane’s popular 2012 comedy Ted. She was also seen in Demetri Martin’s dramedy Dean, and Henry Phillips’s And Punching the Clown. She made her directorial debut with the short film Your Day starring herself and Jason Ritter, which she also wrote.
