The Story Behind How 'The Bear' Was Able To Land Jamie Lee Curtis For That Wild Christmas Episode
  • 2 months ago
In a season already jam-packed with big-name guest stars like Olivia Colman, Sarah Paulson and Bob Odenkirk, Oscar winner Jamie Lee Curtis stole the show as Carmen Berzatto's mother Donna on "The Bear."

Viewers first met Curtis' Donna Berzatto in Season 2's sixth installment, the critically acclaimed "Fishes" episode, which flashes back approximately five years. We see Carmy (Jeremy Allen White) return from Copenhagen to Chicago to spend Christmas with his family and friends, including his intense, alcoholic mother. Curtis' Donna would later memorably pop up in that eventful season 2 finale.
