“This character is going to have some deep psychological issues,” Revenge creator Mike Kelley revealed several months ago.   He want on to say, “So we’re going to need somebody that can play volatile and dangerous; all of the scariest parts of Emily’s personality are going to be present and apparent and a little bit out of control in her mother.  But at the same time, what works so great for Emily is that sweet façade, so this woman needs to feel like she’s got potential for kindness. You look at her and you don’t know that she’s as damaged as she is inside. But you’ll quickly learn that this is a very dangerous person.”

Leigh is currently recurring on the final season of Weeds‘ playing Mary Louise Parker’s older sister.   So what do you think about the casting of Jennifer Jason Leigh as Emily VanCamp’s on-screen mom?  Thumbs up? Or, thumbs down?  Let us know your preliminary thoughts.

Good Actress.

I regard her, as an independant… character… fearless. Actress… who, losses herself in all her roles. She takes over, whomever, she plays out. She’s a scene stealer.

ie: Miami Blues – w/Alec Baldwin
Rush – w/Jason Patric
Dolores Claiborne – w/Kathy Bates
A thousand Acres – w/Jessica Lange and Michelle Pfieffer.

I hope, Jennifer and Madeleine Stowe have meaty encounters….

I don’t know anything about her. I thought maybe she’s too young, but she’s 50, so the age is right. I’ll reserve judgement until she has a chance to get into the role. Can’t wait until REVENGE is back!

I give it a thumbs up!!! She’d be great playing that part. I remember her in “Single White Female” movie, which was good. Also, she was in the movie with Tim Matheson called “Buried Alive” on TV. I liked that movie, which she cheated on Tim Matheson with her co worker and got buried alive at the end; and she was in the TV movie a long time ago, about a young high school student who got to be a cheerleader and her parents did not praise her, or acknowledge her, or wasn’t proud of her (reminds me kind of… Read more »
