Michael Douglas is set to reunite with his “Romancing the Stone” and “The War of the Roses” co-star Kathleen Turner in an episode in the second season of Netflix comedy series “The Kominsky Method”.
Turner has signed on to play Ruth Bederman, the former second wife of Sandy (Douglas) and the mother of his daughter Mindy (Sarah Baker). Turner is scheduled to appear in one episode and the character reportedly “delights in still being able to push the buttons of her ex-husband”.
Jacqueline Bisset was originally set to play the role of Douglas’ ex-wife Gabrielle but when creative changes were made to the character, producers opted to recast.
The reveal comes as “Romancing the Stone” celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. The pair’s co-star Danny DeVito has already appeared on the series playing urologist Dr. Wexler.
Jane Seymour and Paul Reiser also guest star on the upcoming season which is currently filming and will premiere later this year on Netflix.
