Celia Hodes from Weeds is coming to TNT’s The Closer!

EW has learned exclusively that Elizabeth Perkins – best known for her terrific run on the Showtime drama – will guest star as the wife of the LAPD Police Commissioner in an episode airing Dec. 19. Perkins’ character, Gail Meyers, gets into some serious trouble when she tries to cover up a potential scandal.

Gail’s husband is played by the great Mark Moses, better known as Paul Young from Desperate Housewives. And look who else is joining the star-studded episode titled “Road Block”– Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Maggie Wheeler, who will play Gail’s friend who is interrogated by Brenda (Kyra Sedgwick). Nice.

The Closer begins its winter run on Nov. 28.
