'Weeds' pulls in Richard Dreyfuss for guest-starring role

Dreyfuss will play an unexpected character from Nancy Botwin’s (Mary-Louise Parker) past. The role marks a reunion of sorts for Dreyfuss and Showtime: He last appeared as Alexander Haig in the pay network’s The Day Reagan Was Shot.

In 2001, Dreyfuss starred in the CBS drama The Education of Max Bickford. Six years later, he appeared in the Sci-Fi original miniseries Tin Man.

    Loved him in DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS with Nick Nolte and Bette Midler. Classic 80’s comedy.

    Dreyfuss is a has-been. Go away old man and write another Opus so I never have to see you again. You are a joke………..
