Exclusive: Weeds High On Lindsay Sloane

There’s some nice buzz surrounding Andy Botwin’s love life on Weeds.

Sources confirm to TVLine exclusively that the Showtime comedy has tapped the hilarious and underrated Lindsay Sloane (Bring It On, Grosse Pointe) to join the cast as a love interest for Justin Kirk’s alter ego.

Sloane — whose deal calls for her to appear in at least six episodes of the show’s upcoming seventh season — will play Maxeen, a quirky conceptual artist in New York who takes a liking to Andy.

Sloane next appears opposite Saturday Night Live‘s Jason Sudeikis in the big-screen comedy A Good Old Fashioned Orgy.

Weeds‘ seventh (and possibly final) season kicks off on June 27.

  • Nice casting. Hopefully Alanis Morrisette will return at some point as well.

  • Finally! Thank you for the WEEDS scoop, even if it is just a casting update. I’m looking forward to next season to see how they wrap everything up. Also, I’m thinking they’re going to fast forward and when it returns the baby will be bigger and Nancy will be out of jail. Or something along those lines.

    • I’ve heard this is the plan. I love Andy and am happy he is going to have a story that doesn’t revolve around Nancy.

  • Of course she’s going to play Andy’s love interest. She looks just like Nancy.

    • ding ding ding! You are so right about this. Guarantee she’s just a surrogate.

  • amazing choice for the best show on television. Sloane is so funny, she’s going to be a great addition to a perfect cast. It would be nice to see even more of her.

  • I want Andy and Nancy to get together before the end of the series. Those two are made for each other.

  • Lindsay Sloane is best known for her role on Sabrina the Teenage Witch and it wasn’t even mentioned in this article!

  • I hope:
    - This won’t be the final season for Weeds
    - They bring back the Hodes, Carlton, Guillermo and Esteban
    - Shane becomes more of a badass (I didn’t like him when he used to be a kid)
    - Silas gets back with Quinn Hodes (crazy couple)
    - Nancy stops having random sex and becomes more responsible with her family (she is almost 50 years old!!). I’d like to see her end up with Andy (he is the only one who loves the whole family).

    And I really really hope the actress stops smiling all the time (it’s really annoying especially in dramatic scenes)

  • As for Andy’s girlfriends, Zooey Dechanel was the only funny one and Alanis Morisette is a fantastic singer but should really really stay away from acting.
