Elizabeth Perkins is Leaving ‘Weeds’ – Say Goodbye to Celia Hodes
This news is devastating. Elizabeth Perkins is leaving ‘Weeds’ to play James Marsden’s mother in ‘I Hop,’ a live-action CG-Animated comedy. Good for her? Perhaps I am biased since she is my favorite character on ‘Weeds,’ but I am not sure this is the best career move. Television is a consistent, high-paying gig, and film roles are hard to land. What will she do after this? Couldn’t she do both? I actually think the last season of the show was the best, so why jump ship now? Maybe she’s sick of playing second fiddle to Mary Louise Parker. Who knows.
