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?

Despite its premise of following real-world events approximately one year after they take place, we still know relatively little about the second season of Aaron Sorkin's controversial HBO drama 'The Newsroom.' Previously, we'd learned that 'Mad Men' and 'United States of Tara' star Rosemarie DeWitt was to take an important recurring role in the season as a litigator, but now it seems the actress has been forced to exit the production after shooting several episodes. Will HBO recast and re-shoot, or write around the departure?

Much like HBO's other buzzy hot-button drama 'Girls,' we're excited for a second cycle of Aaron Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' regardless of what people had to say about the first.  We've already heard about a few high-profile guest stars for the second season, including comedian Patton Oswalt and 'Mad Men' star Rosemarie Dewitt, but who else might be go for a trip to 'The Newsroom?'  Meryl Streep would certainly be a good get, but if not her, how about her daughter Grace Gummer?

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?
