An actress known for an iconic role in an Alfred Hitchcock movie — and for being one of the last “Hitchcock blondes” — is on her way to “Cougar Town.” TV Guide reports that Tippi Hedren, who played the lead in Hitchcock’s "The Birds," is set for a guest spot on the TBS series.
Besides her landmark performance in “The Birds” in 1963, Hedren starred in Hitchcock’s “Marnie” in 1964. She made a guest appearance earlier this season on the Fox comedy “Raising Hope.”
Hedren will play a Hollywood icon on “Cougar Town.” After the shoot, the longtime animal activist will head to Washington to testify in support of the Exotic Wild Animal Safety Act, the piece notes.
"Cougar Town" premieres Tuesday, Jan. 8, at 10 p.m. ET on TBS.
