Katey Sagal has officially signed on to the cast of the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2. That shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has ever heard her sing in her role as Gemma Taylor on Sons of Anarchy. Katey is an accomplished singer who is presently on the road performing at various venues in her effort to promote her latest CD Covered. She will no doubt add both of her abundant talents to the new film.
In Pitch Perfect 2, Sagal will play the role of Hailee Steinfeld’s mother. Hailee is a newcomer to the Pitch Perfect cast as well. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Brittany Snow are among those reprising their roles for the new film. The movie is in pre-production and is expected to arrive in theaters in May of 2015. Elizabeth Banks has made the leap from actress to director as she takes the helm for this highly anticipated production. She is known for several film roles including The Hunger Games and Walk of Shame.

“Elizabeth originated the idea for Pitch Perfect and was instrumental in making the first film such a huge success,” Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley said during a recent interview. “She brings an enormous amount of energy and experience to everything she works on and we’re thrilled that she is making her feature directorial debut on Pitch Perfect 2.”
Depending on the kind of mother Katey Sagal plays in Pitch Perfect 2, it might be a far cry from her Sons of Anarchy persona. Will her TV show fans follow her to the big screen–and then back to TV again?
