"Revenge" fans will see a new face when the series returns in the fall. Entertainment Weekly reports Jennifer Jason Leigh, 50, has joined the cast of the nail-biting Hamptons drama for its second season.
Leigh has landed the recurring role of Emily Thorne's mother, according to the publication.
The role was teased in the show's finale back in May, when producers revealed that Emily VanCamp's character had a special family tie that would be revealed in the future.
"What you're going to discover about the woman who was Emily's mother is the circumstances under which they were separated, and you're going to find that there's some deep psychological issues with her, which I think is going to be fun for us to explore," show creator Mike Kelley told EW in a previous interview.
"For Emily," he concluded, "she's going to start seeing some of the psychological damage that her mother has in herself."
"Revenge" returns to ABC on Sundays this fall starting September 21.
Yeah, I love that show. I don't care who's in it, I'll be watching. One of the best shows on tv.
Cool! Leigh is gonna ROCK as Em's mom – she's great w/the psycho-but-still-human stuff.
She is soooo annoying! I stopped watching Weeds (which was my favourite show) because she was on it more and more. Now I will be avoiding Revenge as well. Such a bummer!
I'm I the only one that feels really old reading that JJL is 50!! LOL
Thats because you r
Sept 21st is a Friday? Is this an edit in the Copy?
Good she is a good actress and wish to see more of her.
Her Dad. Vic Morrow, was a real hero.
Always wondered why this woman was under rated. Happy to see her on a series.
She's the same age as I am (I'll be 50 myself in less than a month). I still see her in early parts, and forget that she's an ADULT just like me.
I can't count how many times I fapped to her in Fast Times.....splurt!
Yeah, that was one of the hottest scenes ever! ~ ~ ~ <======3
That was Phoebe Cates
I can not believe she is 50. She was so great in Fast Times At Ridgemont High – and so young. eXistenZ was also a cool movie. I really hope things work out great for her.
