Spark a fat blunt? 'You got it, dude.'

Marykate_lMary-Kate Olsen will join the cast of Weeds this season as a love interest for Nancy’s son, Silas. JUST her. No Ashley in sight. I’m pretty psyched for this — I don’t know anyone who doesn’t watch Weeds (I keep a very select social circle), but if I came across one, I’m pretty sure I could reel him/her in now that one of our generation’s greatest fashion icons and most annoying child actors is in the picture! OMG! OMG! OMG! What will she wear?

Her character? "Tara, a devoted Christian girl living in the newly developed megachurch community Majestic." Oh I get it. Rhymes with Agrestic. That’s cute. But I have to say, if we’re not treated to at least one scene of Mary-Kate getting, then actually satisfying the munchies, I’ll be very disappointed. No Starbucks allowed. And I don’t wanna see no stunt muncher either. DIY, MK.

PopWatcher Gary Susman has already put tons of thought into a preliminary list of "merch opportunities" for Mary-Kate: "Olsen-branded rolling papers, roach clips, etc." I’ll take this idea one step further and propose a Mary-Kate Olsen Mac And Cheese And Fritos concoction, available in both "Easy" and "Fat-Free (Oh Puh-leeze)" varieties. What else can one-half of Michelle Tanner sell?

    How about a free plunger to stick in the back of the throat? Makes post munchie bolemia sessions much easier.
    Oh, I’m going to catch some heck for that one…

  • Ron Mexico

    Not from me, you’re not! Well, maybe a little for the soda I just spat on my screen, Ep. Christ that was funny – and utterly tasteless!

  • Houstonian Jen in Baltimore

    Ep Sato, this “BOOOOOOOOOO!” is for you. (Brother, at least spell bulimia correctly if you’re going to go there. We expect more from you.)
    I’m over it. Now let’s move on.

    Matilda, Matilda! SO WHAT! I throw up after lots of meals!

  • Ed

    Can one of the writers please bring up the blog about the new He-Man movie that is in the works. I hear the producer of the cartoon wants to make it look similar to 300 – freakin awsome!

  • Fatima

    That is the single best blog title in the history of forever.

  • Ceballos

    This is the worst bit of casting news I’ve seen in a long time…Ashley Olsen is CLEARLY a superior actress and was born to play Tara the devout Christian girl.
    Mary Kate is completely miscast and in over her head!

  • Ron Mexico

    Why isn’t this blog not taking off more? What – MKO not controversial and trashy enough? Dammit, Brit, where are you, hun?

  • Pete

    wow, im shocked to hear that very intresting i hope she doesnt ruin the show ill keep an open mind bc i looooooooooove weeds and i think they know what there doing….i cant wait til the new season

  • mikey

    Who wouldn’t buy a designer bong modelled after a “smokin’ hot” version of Mary-Kate?

  • Ep Sato

    Foiled again by my poor spelling and mean spirited humor!
    Personally, I was dying to see at least one of the twins go bad. My more sinister side kept hoping for one of the Olsen’s to end up in a Larry Flynt publication, but this is just as good.
    The ultimate “Weeds” tie in product would be a Chris X created marijuana seed that would always grow into a twin, or two stemmed plant. Extra cool would be if the buds on one were red haired and blonde haired on the other. The taste would be sweet, but would have a high bad enough to make one want to dress like a bag lady.
    Okay, okay, enough picking on Mary Kate. I’m looking forward to seeing her on season 3.

    LOL @ Ep Sato. That’s just cruel…

  • Ron Mexico

    No, Ep, I’m sure there are alot of us waiting for one (or both) of them to go work for Mr. Flynt…

  • Houstonian Jen in Baltimore

    Ep Sato, you’re off the hook. You’ve got me cracking up at work about the bag lady thing.
    I wish upon a star those Olsen girls would dress like the millions of dollars they are worth—as opposed to looking like my little cousins after a full day of playing “dress up” out in the grass.

  • tiamria

    I think this is a pic of Ashley, not Mary-Kate. And I can’t believe I know that. Excuse me while I go cry in a corner.
