Join a live chat with 'Mom's' Anna Faris

Join Anna Faris for a live Web chat with @glennwhipp on Tuesday at 11:20 a.m. PDT
Where did Chris Pratt learn his glorious French braid technique? Discuss with Anna Faris on Tuesday.

Anna Faris, star of "Mom" and a recent parent herself with husband Chris Pratt, will be stopping by the Los Angeles Times for a live Web chat on Tuesday at 11:20 a.m. PDT.

A 2011 New Yorker profile called Faris "Hollywood's most original comic actress." The title of the story: "Funny Like a Guy: Anna Faris and Hollywood's Woman Problem." So, yes, while Faris took no prisoners when hosting "Saturday Night Live" and provided many of the more memorable moments in the "Scary Movie" series, she had a hard time finding her niche. Until "Mom."

On the Chuck Lorre-produced comedy, Faris plays a newly sober single mother who decides to reboot her life, moving in with her mother (Allison Janney), who's also a recovering addict. Farris' character is frazzled and funny and became kookier as the show's first season went along.

We'll talk to her about signing up for a network sitcom, particularly so soon after giving birth to her son, Jack. But then, we're imagining Pratt's handy around the house, going by this evidence alone. And this. So we'll ask about all these things and mix in your questions as well. If you have one, tweet it to us, using the hashtag #asklatimes. See you Tuesday.

    A look at the new Emmy rules and what they might change

    Last year's Emmy season started off confusing ("Orange Is the New Black" is a comedy? Really?) and ended up wholly predictable, with no new winners in the drama and comedy series and acting categories, and "Modern Family" taking the comedy trophy for the fifth year running. And while television...

    They've never been lovers. They're definitely not cop buddies. And they're not really related. But some TV twosomes are more than the sum of their parts. They may have been thrown together by writers unsure what else to do with their quirky characters, by circumstance of age or even worldview....
