Actually, there’s nothing all that ironic about Alanis Morissette joining the cast of Showtime’s Weeds. I just really wanted to work that song title into the headline.

Anyway, a Weeds rep confirms that the Jagged Little Pill actor-singer-songwriter has been cast as pregnant Nancy’s (Mary Louise Parker) trusted baby doc, Audra Kitson. Morissette will appear in a minimum of seven episodes during the upcoming fifth season (debuting June 8), and could return next season as well.

Hey, this qualifies as ironic: I’m told the obstetrician role may require Morissette to engage in “some tasteful nudity.” No, Nancy won’t be turning the tables on her lady doc; sources confirm that all Morissette’s character really wants is Justin Kirk’s Andy.
