The driving force behind Emily Thorne’s thirst for vengeance in Revenge’s second season will be the search for her long-lost mother.

And after months of speculation, Weeds actress Jennifer Jason Leigh has been cast in this central role.

According to Deadline, the 50-year-old “will be part of a major story arc in Revenge‘s second season.”

This is the second addition to the Revenge cast in the last month. British actor Barry Sloane will also be moving to the Hamptons as a mysterious potential love interest for Ms. Thorne.

What do you think of Jessica Jason Leigh as Emily Thorne’s mother?
