Mary-Kate Olsen on WEEDS

Mary-Kate Olsen will be joining the cast of the Showtime hit WEEDS. MK will be playing the girlfriend of Silas, the son of Mary Louise Parker’s character. A dark, adult comedy like WEEDS is a pretty big departure for Mary Kate who has always put forth a squeaky clean image in movies such as “To Grandmother’s House We Go” and “The Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley: The Case of the U.S. Space Camp Mission”…well at least she did, when she was 8.

This is one of Mary-Kate’s first roles where she won’t be co-starring with her twin sister Ashley. I still don’t know which one is Mary-Kate. Is she the super skinny one that is always drinking Starbucks and looks like a bag lady or the blonde super skinny one that is always drinking Starbucks and looks like a bag lady? I always get those Olsen twins confused.

An inside source tells me that Mary-Kate had a rough first few weeks. It seems she held up production often by randomly stopping in the middle of a scene, looking towards the camera and saying “You got it, Dude”. But a quick meeting with director Kimmie Gibler seemed to work wonders and filming has resumed.

    I’m actually kind of interested to see how she does. I’ve surprised myself.

    Cut–it–out, GMMR! 🙂

    Awesome entry, for the record.

    Yeah, all Kimmie had to say to get MK in line was, “You’re in big trouble, mithter!” 🙂 I read about this yesterday, and I’ll admit I was intrigued. Supposedly she’s playing a clean-cut Christian girl, so it will be interesting to see how they de-baglady-ify her.

    I’m pretty much a total nerd who has never smoked pot, but for some reason I love Weeds. I’m looking forward to the new season.
