Mary-Kate Olsen goes solo

Mary-Kate OlsenMary-Kate Olsen has been chosen to play a part in Showtime’s hit series Weeds. It will be her first acting role in which she appears without her twin sister, Ashley Olsen. She’ll play Tara, a devout Christian teen who becomes a love interest for Silas, the teenage son of the lead character played by Mary-Louise Parker. Mary-Kate told the Hollywood Reporter, “I’m thrilled to be a part of the show. It’s really an honor to be a part of such a talented group of actors and writers.” Executive producer Jenji Kohan says, “Weeds isn’t your eight o’clock family fare. It’s an adult show with adult subject matter, and we’re confident Mary-Kate is right for the role. She came in and read with Hunter and was absolutely charming and real and seemed like a great fit. Audiences have seen only one side of Mary-Kate, but here we’ll see her in a whole new light.”
