Alanis Morissette is heading to television! She’s nabbed a role on one of the best shows on cable—Weeds. She joins the cast in the fifth season of the Showtime, playing Nancy’s (Mary-Louise Parker) no-nonsense OB/GYN Dr. Audra Kitson, and will appear in at least seven of the thirteen episodes.
On this season of Weeds, Nancy’s pregnancy brings security, then jeopardy and maybe the end of Esteban’s (Demian Bichir) political career; Celia’s return to Ren-Mar brings a powerful new job prospect, Andy’s (Justin Kirk) new love interest brings unexpected consequences; and Doug (Kevin Nealon) and Silas (Hunter Parrish) open a new pot club.
We don’t know much else, except for the fact that Alanis’ character is rumored to be a love interest for Andy. He’s never had much luck I that department. So will be hooking up with his sister-in-law’s gyno? Only on Weeds!
According to EW, Alanis will also have to partake in “tasteful nudity.” Don’t forget, as Hollyscoop previously reported, Jennifer Jason Leigh will also be a part of the cast this season. We have a lot to be excited about!
Tune in June 8th at 10PM on Showtime for the season 5 premiere.
