Jennifer Jason Leigh has joined the cast of “Revenge.”

A rep for the show confirmed to Access Hollywood on Thursday night that the former “Single White Female” star will play Emily Thorne’s mother.

As Emily VanCamp’s character, Emily, learned in the season finale, her mother, whom she thought long dead, is actually alive.

No doubt Jennifer will add even more suspense to the drama.

Jennifer recently played Jill in Showtime’s “Weeds.”

“Revenge” returns this fall on a new night on ABC – Sundays — at 9 PM.
