The Killing - Season 4 - Casting Call

Get ready for How We Met Linden’s Mother — laugh track not included.

Yes indeed, The Killing – which was canceled by AMC, but got a second lease on life last when Netflix ordered a six-episode final season – is looking to cast the role of its lead detective’s mother, a woman described as being in her mid-50s or 60s, with a “startling” physical resemblance to her daughter (played by Mirielle Enos).

Fans of the gritty Seattle-set crime drama know that Sarah Linden was abandoned by her mom as a girl — and subsequently grew up in the foster-care system. According to a casting notice, we’ll learn that the woman has since been living in a completely different world, and that Sarah will find her mother happy, well-mannered and well put-together, having “built a stable life” with a new, middle-class family.

The role is only expected to span “two great scenes,” but will find the estranged mom proving “unexpectedly insightful” about her girl — despite all the years that have passed without seeing one another.

Additional casting notices for Season 4 — including a quartet of series regulars and one guest star — shed some light on the mystery that Linden and her most excellent partner Holder (Joel Kinnaman) will investigate. The series regulars include:

* Linden’s Season 4 nemesis — Margaret O’Neal, a (possibly androgynous) woman from a long line of military types who’s in her mid-40s or 50s and is “the head of an all-boys military academy based outside of Seattle.” Dishonorably discharged from the military “due to her involvement in a questionable incident during one of her tours in the Gulf,” Margaret prides herself on a rigid exterior of strength and discipline, but has “a deeply buried maternal instinct, one she has projected instead onto the troubled academy boys she is charged with molding into men.” O’Neal inherited her job from her father, and her grandfather before him, and it’s all she’s got to hold onto. In other words, don’t look for her to be too cooperative in helping Linden and Holder determine her school’s role in this season’s murder investigation.
