Quentin Tarantino has a reputation for casting actors in unexpected roles – John Travolta in Pulp Fiction or Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, for example. The director's forthcoming film, the western Hateful Eight, will feature Jennifer Jason Leigh in one of her highest-profile roles in years: as Daisy, the sole female member of the titular group of tough characters.

Emmy snub aside, there's exciting news for fans of ABC's Revenge: Jennifer Jason Leigh is joining the cast for the show's sophomore season.
Leigh, 50, who shot to fame in 1982's Fast Times at Ridgemont High, landed the recurring role of Emily Thorne's mother on the Hamptons-set melodrama, EW.com reports.
The role was teased in the show's May finale, when it was revealed that Emily VanCamp's character still had a very special family tie after all. (And this means the Hamptons's reigning queen Victoria Grayson, played by Madeleine Stowe, has some competition ... assuming she's still alive next season.)
