Stage and screen actress Alicia Silverstone will join the cast of ABC's "Suburgatory," according to TVLine.com.
Silverstone will have a multi-episode arc as Eden, a potential love interest for George, played on the series by Jeremy Sisto.

Silverstone has been seen on Broadway in Time Stands Still and The Graduate. She is best known for her film and television credits, including "Clueless," which also starred Sisto, "The Babysitter" and "Batman & Robin," among others.
"Suburgatory" airs Wednesday nights at 8:30 PM ET on ABC.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
