It looks like Minnie Driver is going to the small screen. She has officially been cast in NBC’s “About A Boy,” where she will play a vegan mom, Hollywood Reporter reports.

The new comedy is an adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel and film, which tells the story of Will, a “single bachelor man-child,” who forms a unique relationship with the young boy, Marcus, next door and his eccentric single mother, Fiona, played by Driver.

Driver’s role is described as a recent divorcee living in a stage of “vegan throwback hippie-ness,” and a woman who is looking to improve her life, along with her child’s, by moving to San Francisco.

The 2002 film starred Hugh Grant, Toni Collette and Nicholas Hoult.

Driver joins several other actors who also portray vegans on TV including, Emily Deschanel as Dr. Temperance Brennan on “Bones,” Silas Weir Mitchell as Monroe on “Grimm” and Angela Kinsey as Angela Martin on “The Office,” to name a few.

We’re excited to see Driver’s inner vegan come out, and maybe it will also push her in a plant-based direction.
