Broadway Plucks Mary-Louise Parker from Weeds

Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker already treads on dangerous territory as the pot-growing Nancy Botwin. This winter, she'll be taking on another edgy role as Hedda Gabler in a Broadway revival of Henrik Ibsen's classic play.

Starting January 25, Parker will be starring in the new production from the Roundabout Theater Company, the AP reports.

While Parker has become known for her turn on Weeds --which won her an Emmy nomination this year and a past Golden Globe -- she's no stranger to the stage. She also won a Tony for her role in Proof, and last year she appeared off-Broadway in the play Dead Man's Cell Phone.
