Mary-Louise Parker Seeking New Show After ‘Weeds’

Actress says she cried reading "Weeds" finale

Mary-Louise Parker wants to return to television after the finale of "Weeds," an episode so "beautiful" that she wept upon reading it.

Parker says she will appear in an as-yet-untitled movie that begins shooting Saturday, and will then shoot a sequel to "Red." Then she hopes to return to television, which she said she prefers to film.

The actress, a three-time Emmy nominee for "Weeds," spoke at a Television Critics Association panel for the show's final season.

"I just cried when I read it," she said of the final script. ""I think it's beautiful."

In the film before the "Red" sequel, Parker said, she will play two roles: a suicidal, alcoholic mother, and a "patron saint of teenage boys" who is both sexy and motherly.
