Weeds alum Mary Louise Parker is set to guest star on Season 2 of Showtime drama series Billions. She’ll play George Minchak, a brilliant strategist, in one episode. Season 2 picks up immediately after the season one finale, as hard-charging U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) squares off against billionaire hedge fund king Bobby “Axe” Axelrod (Damian Lewis), scorching the earth in a costly war for personal domination. Parker recurred on The Blacklist and will next be seen as one of the leads in ABC’s event limited series When We Rise. She’s repped by WME.
