Bet you didn't know... During her last two years in college (from 1963 to 1964), Susan worked as a Playboy Bunny for Hugh Hefner.

Susan Sullivan plays Richard Castle's mother Martha Rodgers on Castle, but it's the other moms she's portrayed that have made her famous. You probably remember the New York City native best as either Kitty Montgomery on Dharma and Greg, or as Cameron Diaz's mother in My Best Friend's Wedding. The two-time Emmy and Golden Globe nominee also starred in the soap operas Another World and Falcon Crest. Among her many other credits, Sullivan was also a spokesperson for Tylenol.
