From mobsters (THE SOPRANOS) to power-hungry families (THE TUDORS, ROME), television has seen its fare share of dysfunctional families. Yet no family puts the fun into dysfunctional like the cast of WEEDS. Showtime’s most buzzed about series returns to TV this August 13 at 10PM and theTVaddict.com is thrilled to give you a first look at the returning cast.
New additions include half an Olsen twin (Mary-Kate plays a new love interest for Silas) and Matthew Modine (as Sullivan Groff, a mysterious land developer for Majestic, a new Christian, mega-church development being built right near Agrestic).
“WEEDS isn’t your eight-o’-clock family fare. It’s an adult show with adult subject matter and we’re confident Mary-Kate is right for the role,” says WEEDS creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan. “She came in and read with Hunter (Parrish) and was absolutely charming and real and seemed like a great fit. Audiences have seen only one side of Mary-Kate but here, we’ll see her in a whole new light.”
