Linda Hamilton to guest star on 'Weeds'

Linda_Hamilton Former "Terminator" heroine Linda Hamilton will join Showtime’s “Weeds” for a two-episode arc when the show returns for its sixth season, the network confirmed Monday.

The new season picks up with Nancy (Mary-Louise Parker) and her kooky family on the run after Shane (Alexander Gould) wallopped Pilar (Kate del Castillo) with a croquet mallet -- which we can only assume was simply payback for the time Pilar unsuccessfully tried killing Nancy but instead hit Shane with the bullet.

Hamilton will play an “eco-conscious marijuana grower who, along with her life partner Fiona, helps Nancy’s endeavors in Seattle take bloom," which was first reported on EW.com.

Those endeavors will be sans a vital family member: conniving mom Celia (Elizabeth Perkins); Perkins ended her five-season, Emmy-nominated run on the series last season.

In addition to Hamilton, Peter Stormare (“Prison Break”) joins the mix. He'll play a cranky German chef who isn't too keen on his new dishwasher, Andy (Justin Kirk).

The sixth season premieres Aug. 16.

So Show Trackers, what do you think of the additions?
