Gwyneth Paltrow's mum Blythe Danner is bouncing back after being axed from sitcom TWO AND A HALF MEN - the actress is starring in a pilot for new drama HUFF.

Danner will join EMMY-winner Hank Azaria and Paget Brewster in the cast of the two-hour drama pilot for SONY PICTURES TELEVISION, about a psychiatrist - Huff - going through a midlife crisis. Danner will reportedly play his mother.

Producers will be hoping Danner restricts her input to acting, after she was allegedly fired from Two And A Half Men for interfering with the making of the show.
