Mary-Kate Olsen will be in 10 out of 15 episodes of Weeds this season. This is her first solo role without sister Ashley. MK will play Tara, a devoted Christian girl living in the newly developed megachurch community Majestic who becomes a love interest for Silas. The second season of the Showtime series starts August 13th.
The series' executive producer said, "It's an adult show with adult subject matter, and we're confident Mary-Kate is right for the role. She came in and read with Hunter and was absolutely charming and real and seemed like a great fit. Audiences have seen only one side of Mary-Kate, but here we'll see her in a whole new light."
I don't watch Weeds, but looks like I have to watch it now. MK probably had no idea what she was signing up for. She wanted to buy some weed not star in it. Ok, really bad joke. It's early!
