Alanis Morissette Joins Cast of Weeds

Alanis Morissette

Jenji Kohan sure has interesting taste in Hollywood women. In her ganja-centric comedy, Weeds, quirky starlets are sprinkled throughout the show as numerously as those little boxes (made of ticky-tacky) that dot the landscape of Agrestic. Now, following in the tracks of doe-eyed Zooey Deschanel and well-heeled hobo Mary-Kate Olsen comes the dark queen of break-up music herself, Alanis Morissette.

Morissette will play the role of the obstetrician charged with taking care of pregnant Nancy Botwin (Mary Louise Parker), Entertainment Weekly reports. Although she is confirmed to appear in at least seven episodes during the fifth season, there is a possibility that she'll reappear in the sixth season as well.
