Though with less fanfare than 'Game of Thrones' or 'True Blood,' HBO's controversial Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom' will premiere its second season this coming Sunday with "First Thing We Do, Let's Kill All the Lawyers." Mouthy titles aside, the new season will introduce a host of new characters from the likes of Grace Gummer, Marcia Gay Harden, Hamish Linklater and Constance Zimmer, so why wait to meet the new faces delivering Sorkin's favorite recycled lines?
Marcia Gay Harden
Late last week we brought you the news from HBO's second season of 'The Newsroom,' which unfortunately revealed that a scheduling conflict with 'Mad Men' star Rosemarie DeWitt meant the actress had to bow out mid-shooting, and be replaced with another actress. Now, HBO has announced that TV vet Marcia Gay Harden will replace DeWitt in the role, but will it change anything about the second season of the Aaron Sorkin drama?
For a woman with an Oscar on her shelf, Marcia Gay Harden's career has been rather quiet recently. Rather than headline movies, she seems content to take scene-stealing supporting roles in a wide variety of projects, appearing in everything from 'Into the Wild' to 'The Mist.' However, for the first time in awhile, it looks like Harden is ready to step into the spotlight, taking the title role in the indie drama 'The Librarian.'
