Sissy Spacek is heading to Big Love for a multi-episode arc, according to the LA Times. She’ll “play a powerful Washington D.C. lobbyist.”

This just in: Big Love‘s cast is amazing. I’m guessing Spacek will be some sort of gaming lobbyist, but honestly, she could play a lobbyist for the cabbage industry and I wouldn’t care — I just can’t wait for this show to come back. The show’s had a steady and spectacular upwards trajectory, and last season’s road-trip arc provided some of the most emotionally resonant hours of TV I’ve seen in years.

Big Love doesn’t have a firm premiere date yet, PopWatchers, but I’m excited nonetheless. Are you optimistic about Spacek’s role, or do you think the cast is big enough as-is?
