Isn't it ironic: Alanis Morissette lights up 'Weeds'

Actually, there’s nothing all that ironic about Alanis Morissette joining the cast of Showtime’s Weeds. I just really wanted to work that song title into the headline.

Anyway, a Weeds rep confirms that the Jagged Little Pill actor-singer-songwriter has been cast as pregnant Nancy’s (Mary Louise Parker) trusted baby doc, Audra Kitson. Morissette will appear in a minimum of seven episodes during the upcoming fifth season (debuting June 8), and could return next season as well.

Hey, this qualifies as ironic: I’m told the obstetrician role may require Morissette to engage in “some tasteful nudity.” No, Nancy won’t be turning the tables on her lady doc; sources confirm that all Morissette’s character really wants is Justin Kirk’s Andy.

    Sweet! Like Suz though I do miss Helia and Conrad. This whole pregnancy thing is going to be insane. I love MLP and I cannot wait for a new season!

    We ALL know how much Alanis loves the weed, so no surprise here… she cannot act though.

    “Nancy won’t be turning the tables on her lady doc…” That’s a damn shame. But yay! Alanis rocks!! To Up, how the hell can you tell whether or not she can act? She’s only had one small part in Dogma, and she was on You Can’t Do That on Television as a kid which can’t be counted as a serious measure. Are you just down on her because she’s a supposed feminist?

  • hugofan

    At first I was doubtful about this news, but then I remembered when she was on Lovespring International. She’s pretty good.
