Sigourney WeaverSigourney Weaver has booked a guest role on HBO's new Tea Leoni pilot, 'Spring/Fall.'

According to Deadline, Weaver will play a very "authoratative" fashion editor.

In September, Weaver told Moviefone that she wasn't quite ready to book a starring role on a TV series. However, she wasn't ready to rule it out.

"If the right thing came along, I'd jump at it," she said. "To be a part of a wonderful -- I think it would have to be a comedy or I wouldn't like it -- to be part of a comic ensemble that gets to work together for a long time is just ... what a wonderful idea."

Jessica Hecht, Matt Letscher, Jason Antoon and Marin Hinkle have also joined 'Spring/Fall.' Hope Davis and Tea Leoni star as two women who have a dysfunctional friendship in the world of fashion.
