written by Staff   |   February 14, 2017

It’s been nearly a decade since the end of Reba, but JoAnna Garcia Swisher is totally in for a reboot. The half-hour sitcom starred country star Reba McEntire as a single mother, whose character’s ex-husband married a younger woman. Swisher played Reba’s oldest daughter. Reba aired for six seasons on The WB and The CW, ending its run on Feb. 18, 2007.

“I think we would all be super pumped to get together professionally,” Swisher told ET’s Katie Krause at the Fist Fight premiere in Los Angeles on Monday. “But we all are pretty tight and stay pretty close and connected and spend a lot of time together, so it doesn’t really feel like it’s ever gone away. It airs like 100 times a day, so we’re reliving the moments.”

Last June, the 37-year-old actress welcomed her second daughter, Sailor Stevie, with former baseball pro husband Nick Swisher, and she gushed about how her oldest daughter, 3-year-old Emerson, is adapting to the little one.

“I think her older sister is handling it very well. She’s a really good big sister, but I kind of go a little over the top for the birthdays,” Swisher said, sharing her plans for Sailor’s upcoming 1st birthday. “Kicking around a little Alice in Wonderland theme. Always something a little crazy!”

Swisher also shared the lessons she’d instill in her two young children from her high school days. “Don’t sweat the small stuff. It all works out,” Swisher said. “But it’s the drama that’s part of what makes high school so great. The heartaches and the falling in love — hopefully the firsts, but not [the first] of everything.”

As for Swisher’s Valentine’s Day plans, she’ll be busy promoting Fist Fight in New York City. But, as she shared, the city has special meaning for her and her husband, who played for the New York Yankees from 2009-12.

“New York is a really romantic city and has a lot of great memories for my husband and I, so it’ll be good,” she shared.

Hello JoAnna fans! The first official teaser trailer for JoAnna’s upcoming film “Fist Fight” has now been released, and you can catch it below! Sadly I couldn’t spot our girl in it, but hopefully we’ll have some clips of her soon. It’s still worth a look, though…

Watch “Fist Fight” when it opens across the Philippines on February 22, 2017.

On the last day of the year, mild-mannered high school English teacher Andy Campbell (Day) is trying his best to keep it together amidst senior pranks, a dysfunctional administration and budget cuts that put jobs on the line. But things go from bad to worse when he accidentally crosses his much tougher and deeply feared colleague, Ron Strickland (Ice Cube), who challenges Campbell to an old-fashioned throw down after school. News of the fight spreads like wildfire and ends up becoming the very thing this school, and Campbell, needed.

“Fist Fight” also stars Tracy Morgan (“30 Rock”), Jillian Bell (“22 Jump Street”), Dean Norris (“Breaking Bad”), Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”), Dennis Haysbert (“The Unit”), JoAnna Garcia Swisher (“The Astronaut Wives Club”).

Keen directs from a screenplay by Van Robichaux & Evan Susser (Funny or Die’s “What’s Going On? With Mike Mitchell”), story by Van Robichaux & Evan Susser and Max Greenfield. “Fist Fight” is produced by Shawn Levy, Max Greenfield, John Rickard, and Dan Cohen. Serving as executive producers are Toby Emmerich, Richard Brener, Samuel J. Brown, Dave Neustadter, Charlie Day, Ice Cube, Marty P. Ewing, Billy Rosenberg, and Bruce Berman.

New Line Cinema presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a 21 Laps/Wrigley Pictures production: “Fist Fight.” The film will be distributed in the Philippines by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

Fox’s upcoming baseball series Pitch is adding to its cast lineup.

The fall drama has enlisted JoAnna Garcia Swisher for a recurring role, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Pitch — produced in partnership with Major League Baseball — centers on Ginny Baker, a young female pitcher (Kylie Bunbury, Under the Dome) who defies the odds when she becomes the first woman to play in the major leagues.

Garcia Swisher will play Rachel Patric, a Katie Couric/Megyn Kelly-type newscaster. Intelligent, quick-witted, extremely competent and great at her job, she is tenacious and knows how to get the story. She also is catcher Mike Lawson’s (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) ex-wife. The character instigated the divorce and is already engaged to someone else, much to Mike’s chagrin. Garcia Swisher will first appear in the second episode of Pitch, production of which began Monday at Dodger Stadium, where scenes featuring the show’s Padres taking on the Dodgers were being shot.

Garcia Swisher’s casting comes as her career is beginning to intersect with her personal life as the actress is married to former New York Yankee slugger Nick Swisher. Her recent credits include Once Upon a Time, Grandfathered and The Astronaut Wives. She iss repped by WME and John Carrabino Management.

Also confirmed to return to the baseball series from Dan Fogelman, Kevin Falls and Rick Singer are Bob Balaban, who appeared in the pilot and will recur as Frank Reid, the owner of the Padres; Chastity Dotson as Janet Baker, Ginny’s mother; Ryan Dorsey as Tommy Miller, the pitcher Ginny replaced on the team’s roster and her antagonist; Jack McGee as Buck, the team’s pitching coach; and Michael Beach as Bill Baker, Ginny’s father.

Pitch is set to premiere Thursday, Sept. 22, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. Watch the trailer, below.
