How very! The Heathers TV reboot just expanded its ranks by adding none other than Selma Blair to its cast. Selma posted about joining the ten-episode Paramount Network show on her Instagram and shared an on-set photo of her in costume. In her recurring role, Selma will play the part of an unrefined, money-hungry stripper named Jade, who’s married to the elderly father of Heather Duke (played by Brendan Scannell).

Of course, the line from the original Heathers referenced by the caption is, in its entirety, “Fuck me gently with a chainsaw. Do I look like Mother Teresa?” Judicious paraphrasing, Selma! The show, which is set to premiere in 2018, also recently added original Heathers star Shannen Doherty to the cast in a “pivotal, unnamed role.”
