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.)

Just seven months after the birth of their son, Jennifer Jason Leigh is seeking to end her five-year marriage to director Noah Baumbach.
Leigh, 48, whose real name is Jennifer Morrow, filed for divorce on Nov. 15 in Los Angeles Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.
She's seeking spousal support as well as primary custody of their son, Rohmer, with visitation for Baumbach.
