I Hop is directed by Tim Hill, the April 1, 2011 release tells the tale of an out-of-work slacker (James Marsden) who accidentally injures the Easter Bunny (voiced by Russell Brand) and must take him in as he recovers. As Fred struggles with the world’s worst houseguest, both will learn what it takes to finally grow up.

Elizabeth will play Marsden’s exasperated mother in the Illumination Entertainment/Universal production. She also is developing a comedy series as a starring vehicle for herself.

  1. hello, Just now getting into weeds. Elizabeth is so much fun to watch.I Cant Help Seeing A Glimps of a young The Great Geraldine Page .And I love It! James

  2. I just recently get into ‘Weeds’ and Celia is my favorite character. Elizabeth absolutely dominated that role. Knowing that she won’t be a part of season 6 makes me not want to watch the show. I can hardly wait to see what kind of series she will star in next. Whatever it is, I’m in!
