Leigh to play Nancy Botwin's sister in at least two episodes of the award-winning comedy series

LOS ANGELES, CA � (April 16, 2009) � Award-winning film actress Jennifer Jason Leigh will take on the role of �Jill Price-Gray,� Nancy Botwin's (Mary-Louise Parker) older sister in the fifth season of SHOWTIME's highest-rated comedy series WEEDS, premiering Monday, June 8th at 10pm PT/ET. Leigh will debut in the season's second episode (June 15th) and appear in at least two episodes.

This season, as Nancy finds herself and her family in harm's way, she sends Andy (Justin Kirk) to take her son Shane (Alexander Gould) to live with her estranged older sister (Leigh). But when Jill gets fed up with her own suburban family, she finds her way back into Nancy's life, jealous, frustrated, and intent on finally hashing things out with her little sister.

Best known for her breakout performance in Cameron Crowe's '80s teen comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Leigh has made a name for herself in eclectic roles in films as wide ranging as Single White Female and Bastard Out of Carolina. She wrote and directed the 2001 film The Anniversary Party. Leigh is set to star opposite Ben Stiller, Greta Gerwig, Rhys Ifans and Juno Temple in Focus Features' Greenburg, written and directed by Noah Baumbach with Scott Rudin producing. Her recent film credits include Charlie Kaufman's award-winning film Synecdoche, New York and Margot at the Wedding, also written and directed by Baumbach and produced by Rudin.
