Revenge Casts Emily's Mother!

by at . Comments

Revenge has cut through the Weeds and tracked down Emily Thorne's mother. Well, really Amanda Clarke's mother, but still.

ABC sources confirm that Jennifer Jason Leigh has been cast in the highly-anticipated role of the woman long presumed dead by her troubled daughter. The first season of this thriller concluded, of course, with the discovery that Mrs. Clarke was still alive.

As you might expect, the character has been described psychologically damaged, dangerous and a bit of a loose canon. And to all of those who have only seen Leigh's comedic side on Weeds over the last couple seasons, rest easy:

There's plenty of time to pick up Single White Female before Revenge Season 2 premieres in September.

What do you think of this casting choice? Sound off now and check out the first official trailer for the show's move to Sundays this fall.

If you have only seen Jennifer Jason Leigh on "Weeds" you have missed out on more than half of her talent. She is an awesome dramatic actress. Rent and watch "Georgia" as well as "Single White Female."

I don't know what to think. I feel indifferent to the choice.

Revenge Quotes

[to Aiden] Hate is a lot like love. You can't force it. You can't fight it. You just have to embrace it when it comes along.

Emily

The greatest weapon anyone can use against us is our own mind. By preying on the doubts and uncertainties that already lurk there. Are we true to to ourselves? Or do we live for the expectations of others? And if we are open and honest, can we ever truly be loved? Can we find the courage to release our deepest secrets, or in the end are we all unknowable... even to ourselves.
