Well, alright then. Comedian Patton Oswalt's TV career definitely seems to be taking off to new heights, first with a recurring stint on FX's gunslinger drama 'Justified,' and now as we've learned, another recurring gig on HBO's Aaron Sorkin drama 'The Newsroom.' Oswalt isn't alone however, as Rosemary DeWitt has also been tasked for a recurring role, but who will the former 'United States of Tara' stars (yes, both) play?
It was only a few short months ago that everyone was up in arms over whether or not Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama 'The Newsroom' was either his best work to date, or a pale imitation of beloved past dramas like 'The West Wing.' Well, regardless of how you feel, nostalgia seems ot have won the day as the entire cast of 'The West Wing' has reunited to deliver a special political message in a new video! But what cause could bring such Hollywood greats together again for a 'West Wing' reunion?
Whether you love or hate HBO's new Aaron Sorkin media drama 'The Newsroom,' there's no denying that it has people talking. That is to say, it has people arguing! Critics of the series have been extremely vocal about the manner in which Sorkin portrays women, as well as recycles both lines and plots from his past works, as well as the recent changes to the writing staff, but what happens when Sorkin faces a room full of inquisitive reporters?
With 'The Newsroom' locked down for a second season after only 2 episodes airing, it's certainly time to start thinking about expanded roles for the Aaron Sorkin drama's next year. We've just learned that 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2' star Terry Crews will join the show's first season later on, but for how long? And is there a chance of making it into the second season?
We hope you like sexy vampires and hard-hitting journalism, because HBO is about to give you another helping! Though they certainly make for strange bedfellows on Sunday nights, The pay-cabler network has officially given renewal orders for a sixth season of 'True Blood,' and a second season of Aaron Sorkin's hotly-debated newsroom drama, titled eloquently enough 'The Newsroom.' So when might we see new helpings?
Between 'True Blood's upcoming fifth season, and the current run of 'Game of Thrones,' there hasn't been a whole lot of promotion in the way of Aaron Sorkin's return to TV in the Jeff Daniels-starring 'The Newsroom.' No longer! With a June 24 premiere mere weeks away, HBO has given us our third official trailer, but is it more 'West Wing' or 'Studio 60?'
Sure, 'Game of Thrones' is great and all (I mean, did you see last night's "The Ghost of Harrenhal?"), but with 'Boardwalk Empire' still on hiatus, it may feel like we've been a little lacking for down-to-Earth HBO drama. So before we settle in this summer, how about a fresh look at Aaron Sorkin's upcoming news drama 'The Newsroom?'
