ABSTRACT
The article presents information about actress Mary-Louise Parker. Nobody does long-suffering like Parker. From her breakout film role as an abused housewife in 1991's film "Fried Green Tomatoes," to her performance as a valium-addicted woman married to a gay Mormon in the HBO 2003 telefilm "Angels in America," her characters always seem to be tortured and riddled with anxiety. And she's perfected that wrenching imperfection to an art form. It was on vivid, darkly comic display during the summer in her role as pot-dealing suburban mom Nancy Botwin in the Showtime comedy series "Weeds," which is expected to return for a second season in 2006.
