Mary Louise Parker has 2 films in theaters this weekend


In the sequel, "Red 2", you'll see more fighting, more explosions, and more of Parker, who's back for round two. This time around, she joins the ex-CIA operatives in their mission to track down a deadly nuclear weapon. But she does make a few rookie mistakes along the way.

Parker has been acting professionally for more than 20 years on screen, on stage, and most recently, in her Emmy-nominated role on "Weeds." All those credits, but she is very un-Hollywood.

"It is a particular world in Hollywood. I never lived in Hollywood, but when you go out there it is a 'land' and you see people with their lunches and their meetings and things and it's not something I've ever really been good at," said Parker. "When I went to drama school, I just thought I was going to be an actor and I would do rep theatre for the rest of my life and I would be happy. To me, the movies was some other planet."

Parker gets to show off different sides to her acting skills this weekend with both "Red 2" and "R.I.P.D." I asked her what she would really like to do that Hollywood has not seen her do yet.

"I always wanted to do like a Disney animated thing. I think they think I'm not very Disney because I was on a show about marijuana, but I'm actually very Disney. I can give you a tour of Disneyland with my eyes closed," said Parker.
