This is fantastic news. I’ve watched “Whatever It Takes” at least twenty times this past summer thinking that Marla needs to be on a new television show or in a new movie because she is truly splendid. Who could forget her as “Gia” on “Full House” or as “Cokie Mason” in “The Baby-Sitters Club” movie?!? Congrats girl because you’ve been missed!
One of The Fostersis cozying up to a Practice alumna.
TVLine has learned exclusively that Marla Sokoloff has landed a recurring role on the hit ABC Family drama as a sober companion — and then some — for Danny Nucci’s character, Mike.
The actress’ pretty and edgy “Hurricane Dani” is a real force of nature who acts first and thinks later and becomes the recovering alcoholic’s new squeeze.
Sokoloff — whose TV credits include guest spots on Melissa & Joey, CSI: NY and Desperate Housewives — will first appear in the Feb. 17 episode.
The Fosters returns for Season 1B on Jan. 13.
