'Fringe' exclusive: Look who's playing Walter's wife (and Peter's mom)!

The Bishop family unit is complete!

Irish actress Orla Brady — you may remember her as James Woods’ ex on Shark — has nabbed the pivotal role of Walter’s other half and mother to Peter, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The character — described in the initial casting breakdown as strong, smart, and likable — will debut in early ‘10.

Thoughts? She kind of has a Lena Olin vibe going for her, no?
