Today, Monday, November 15, Lauralee Bell (ex-Christine, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) launches the fifth webisode of her award-nominated cyberseries, FAMILY DINNER! You can watch it right now at FunnyorDie.com! In addition to the regular cast, the webisode will feature several well-known guest stars, including the legendary Shirley Jones (ex-Colleen, DAYS OF OUR LIVES).

"At this point in my life and career, I love trying new things," Jones says of her guest appearance on the webisode. "The experience was wonderful. I had just come from two concerts, one in Ohio and one in Pittsburgh, and my manager picked me up at the airport and drove me right to the set. I was a little tired!" she recalls with a laugh. "I had very little time to learn my lines, but Lauralee made it so easy for me."

The showbiz vet adds that she was also attracted to the fact that her character was a music therapist. "I loved that idea... trying to get these people together through music," she smiles. "That part was fun for me. I'd love to come back now that I know what [a web series] is. I really enjoyed the fun and humor, and the actors were so good, such pros, that part was really great for me."

Bell says that the format of producing a web series is ideal for busy actors. "It's a very cost effective way of utilizing actors, because you don't have to have the entire cast in all the time. It's conducive to getting bigger name guest-stars," she shares. "I think they're fascinated by the fact that you can get it done so quickly. And our previous guest-stars -- Cloris Leachman and Phyllis Diller -- didn't hurt!" The latest installment of FAMILY DINNER will also feature Rick Springfield (ex-Noah, GENERAL HOSPITAL), AMERICAN IDOL Jordin Sparks, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and singer Richard Marx.
