Parker is currently in production on Season 3 of Showtime's critically-acclaimed hit comedy "Weeds,” from Emmy-winning writer-producer Jenji Kohan. The show centers on a suburban mom (Parker) who turns to selling pot to make a living after her husband dies unexpectedly. Season three began in August 2007.

In film, Parker will next be seen in "Romance & Cigarettes,” written and directed by John Turturro and produced by the Coen brothers. She stars opposite James Gandolfini, Kate Winslet and Mandy Moore. The film premiered at the 2005 Venice and Toronto Film Festivals.

Parker most recently starred on stage at The Biltmore Theater in the Broadway revival of Craig Lucas' "Reckless,” the bittersweet comedy which follows Rachel (Parker) through a bizarre, fantastic and sometimes nightmarish journey as she travels across the country, finding "home” with a succession of intimate strangers. Parker starred opposite Rosie Perez and Debra Monk. The play was co-produced by Second Stage and The Manhattan Theatre Club and directed by Mark Brokaw. Parker received a 2005 Tony nomination for her performance as well as a 2005 Drama League Performer of the Year nomination. The show was also nominated for Best Revival of a Play by the Drama League.

She also earned the 2001 T. Schreiber Award for Outstanding Achievement in Theatre.

For her role as Rita in the Craig Lucas/Norman René Broadway production of "Prelude to a Kiss,” Parker received a Tony nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play, Theatre World Award, The Clarence Derwent Award and a Drama Desk nomination. She originated the role of L'il Bit in the critically lauded "How I Learned to Drive” alongside David Morse, for which she received an Obie Award, a Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actress and a Best Actress nomination from the Outer Critics Circle. Parker followed "How I Learned to Drive” with the American premiere of Alan Ayckbourn's play "Communicating Doors.” Previously, she appeared on Broadway as Cherie in the Broadway revival of "Bus Stop” and originated the role of Brenda in the Manhattan Theatre Club productions of "Four Dogs and a Bone” and "The Art of Success.”
