As if we weren't already counting the months until Party Down's return to our small screens, now there is one more reason to long for it. Funnylady Megan Mullally is joining the cast of the Starz show, which is tentatively slated to come back for season two in April 2010.

The Emmy-winning Will & Grace star will play Lydia Dunfree, a middle-aged mom who moves from a small town to Hollywood in hopes of her 13-year-old daughter Escapade (yes, her name is Escapade) making it big as an actress.

Hilarity is sure to ensue as we see Lydia search for Mr. Right as she works at the Party Down catering company alongside returning castmates Lizzy Caplan, Ken Marino, Adam Scott, Martin Starr and Ryan Hansen.

Perfect gig for Megan or what?! Tell us what you think in the comments below.
