Mary-Kate Branches Out on “Weeds”

May 24th, 2007 // 3 Comments

The somewhat skinnier and very often slightly more heavily layered Olsen twin, Mary-Kate, will be gracing the small screen for the first time in five years. And she’ll be doing it without her twin sister. The “Full House” star is set to appear on Showtime’s comedy series, “Weeds,” which is premiering its third season August 13th. Her character will act as the love interest for the son of Mary-Louise Parker’s character, Nancy Botwin, Olsen signed on to appear in 10 out of 15 of the third season’s episodes.

“‘Weeds’ isn’t your 8 o’clock family fare,” series creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan said. “It’s an adult show with adult subject matter, and we’re confident Mary-Kate is right for the role.”

Well, good for her. It’s refreshing to hear that she’s not going to the tiresome and typical route of the child actress attempting to blossom into more “mature” roles, by taking on the obligatory role of young prostitute. Yay! I’m so encouraging.
