Mary-Kate's Smokin' New Role

Has Mary-Kate Olsen actually acted in anything since Full House and those terrible twin sister movies? I haven't seen her in anything but paparazzi shots, looking like a bag lady, but she's finally getting a "big girl" role -- and it's going to be a goodie. Showtime has added the skinny starlet to the cast of Weeds, where M-K will play "Tara, a devoted Christian girl . . . who becomes a love interest for Nancy Botwin's (Mary-Louise Parker) son, Silas (Hunter Parrish)." The show's executive producer told Hollywood Reporter, "Audiences have seen only one side of Mary-Kate, but here we'll see her in a whole new light." Emphasis on the "light," I hope. I'd love to see Mary-Kate take a big bong hit and then head to 7-Eleven for some burritos and a Big Gulp.
