The Latest Weeds Buzz: Martin Short! Aidan Quinn! Details on the Time Jump and Big Move!
As the season picks up starting Monday, June 27, Nancy will have just completed a three-year stint in prison, after surrendering to the Feds for the murder of Pilar Zuazo. Nancy is now on probation, and in of all places, opportunity-rich New York City. There, she’ll live out of a strictly monitored halfway house while attempting to restart the “family business” from scratch — as Andy, Silas, Shane and Doug make tracks for Manhattan after laying low in Copenhagen.
Short, hot off a stellar run on Damages, will guest-star an eccentric attorney in at least three episodes, while Quinn (a cast member of NBC’s upcoming Prime Suspect) will play a charismatic investment firm CEO in at least four episodes.
Also on board for Season 7: Jennifer Jason Leigh, reprising her role as Nancy’s estranged sister Jill (who has been watching Stevie while Nancy was in the clink); David Clennon (thirtysomething) as the husband of the artist being played by Lindsay Sloane; Pablo Schreiber (Lights Out) as an army supply sergeant/brother of Nancy’s former cellmate, who helps outfit her newest endeavor; and Gary Anthony Williams (The Boondocks) as Nancy’s halfway house counselor.
