Revenge Casts Emily's Mother!

by at .

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.

JJ Leigh

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."

    She's not who I expected, but I can't say I'm disappointed. Let's just wait and see.
