'Weeds': Elizabeth Perkins exits show?

elizabeth-perkins-gi-320.jpg "Weeds" star Elizabeth Perkins is hopping away from Showtime.

The actresss' five-year run as breast cancer survivor and Nancy Botwin-antagonist Celia Hodes has ended, says The Hollywood Reporter.

She's landed a role in the James Marsden-starring film "Hop," which follows unemployed slacker Fred (Marsden) who must put up with the cranky Easter Bunny (voiced by Russell Brand) as a roommate after he accidentally injures him.

Perkins will play Fred's mom.

There has to be more than just a movie to lure her away from "Weeds." Apparently, she's also developing a comedy series in which she'd star.

Perkins' rep could not be reached for comment.

The sixth season of "Weeds" premieres on Aug. 16.
