JENNIFER Jason Leigh is joining the cast of ABC’s Revenge.
The 50-year-old — whoshot to fame in 1982′s Fast Times at Ridgemont High — landed the recurring role of Emily Thorne’s mother on the Hamptons-set melodrama.
According to Entertainment Weekly, the role was teased in the show’s May finale, when it was revealed that Emily VanCamp‘s character still had a very special family tie after all.
“What you’re going to discover about the woman who was Emily’s mother is the circumstances under which they were separated, and you’re going to find that there’s some deep psychological issues with her, which I think is going to be fun for us to explore,” show creator Mike Kelley previously said.
“For Emily,” he said, “she’s going to start seeing some of the psychological damage that her mother has in herself.”
