Weeds Series Finale Serves Up American Pie Alum
There’s not much to know about Weeds’ well-guarded series finale, but now we know this: American Pie’s Natasha Lyonne is involved.
Lyonne, who recently guest-starred on New Girl and Law & Order: SVU, will play a character named Tiffani, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She’ll show up in the Showtime dramedy’s final episode, a two-parter slated for Sept. 16.
The details we do have about the series’ parting shot come from reliable sources: star Mary-Louise Parker and creator Jenji Kohan. Kohan recently told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour in Beverly Hills that the hour would be “a trip down memory lane” featuring characters from the series’ eight seasons.
Parker, who at the press tour said the finale’s script moved her to tears, praised Kohan’s masterful touch. “She didn’t make it a ‘happily ever after thing,’” the actress said, “but there was hope in it and there was some sort of benediction.”Follow @kimroots
