Just when you believed Big Little Lies could not perhaps get any much better or larger, here comes Meryl Motherf * cking Streep to show you incorrect.
Streep has actually simply signed on for the 2nd season of the HBO series. She signs up with returning stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.
Streep will play the mom of Perry Wright (Alexander Skarsgå rd), violent spouse to Celeste (Kidman). His character was (Season 1 spoiler alert!) eliminated in the very first season.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Streep’s Mary Louise is worried for her grandchildren in the wake of his death, and she’s shown up in Monterey looking for responses.
As The Playlist explained on Twitter, Streep and Skarsgå rd currently have an onscreen connection … sort of.
