“Weeds” star Elizabeth Perkins is hopping away from Showtime.
The actresss’ five-year run as breast cancer survivor and Nancy Botwin-antagonist Celia Hodes has ended, says The Hollywood Reporter.
She’s landed a role in the James Marsden-starring film “Hop,” which follows unemployed slacker Fred (Marsden) who must put up with the cranky Easter Bunny (voiced by Russell Brand) as a roommate after he accidentally injures him.
Perkins will play Fred’s mom.
There has to be more than just a movie to lure her away from “Weeds.” Apparently, she’s also developing a comedy series in which she’d star.
Perkins’ rep could not be reached for comment.
The sixth season of “Weeds” premieres on Aug. 16.
Casting call: James Marsden buddies up with Easter Bunny
‘Weeds’ returns in August. Happy 4/20!
