The actress, best known for her role on Friends as Ross' ex-wife's lesbian lover, and more recently seen on Bored to Death and Breaking Bad, will come on board the show's final season as Jane.

UPDATE: Andrea Parker (Less Than Perfect) has actually nabbed the role. Negotiations with Hecht broke down at the last moment.
