Richard Dreyfuss To Guest Star on WEEDS

Richard Dreyfuss

Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss will guest star in at least four episodes of Showtime’s original series WEEDS when it returns for its sixth season on August 16th at 10pm PT/ET. Dreyfuss will play an unexpected character from Nancy Botwin’s past.

This season, Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker in her Golden Globe® Award-winning performance) and family are now on the lam after Shane (Alexander Gould) bopped Mexican VIP Pilar to death with a croquet mallet. To elude the Mexican FBI, police and mafia, they grab what they can, toss their cell phones and IDs and hit the road. Previously announced guest stars include Linda Hamilton, Peter Stormare, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, as well as returning guest stars Alanis Morissette and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
