Jennifer Jason Leigh Signs on For Revenge


Weeds star Jennifer Jason Leigh is ready to dish out some Revenge. According to TVLine, Leigh has landed the role of Amanda Clarke’s (Emily VanCamp) mother, who was believed to be dead.

“This [character] is going to have some deep psychological issues,” Revenge creator Mike Kelley told TVLine back in May. “So we’re going to need somebody that can play volatile and dangerous; all of the scariest parts of Emily’s personality are going to be present and apparent and a little bit out of control in her mother. But at the same time, what works so great for Emily is that sweet façade, so this woman needs to feel like she’s got potential for kindness. You look at her and you don’t know that she’s as damaged as she is inside. But you’ll quickly learn that this is a very dangerous person.”
