Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life brought back basically all of your favorite Stars Hollow citizens—and then some. In addition to your series regulars Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop and Scott Patterson, there were guest appearances from the old friends like Carole King, Sally Struthers, Melissa McCarthy, Milo Ventimiglia and Matt Czuchry—and then some. New famous faces joined the Gilmore Girls universe for A Year in the Life.
For starters, there was Mae Whitman, Graham's Parenthood daughter as Marcy, the girl on the New York City street who helps Lorelai get some coveted sneakers in exchange for the latest pastry craze. Whitman is an admitted Gilmore Girls super fan and said she played the whole cameo game cool, and once she was signed up and on set, she was creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's for the taking.
