The Newsroom casts Marcia Gay Harden in lawyer role

Date January 22, 2013

LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) - "The Newsroom" has found new representation.

Aaron Sorkin's HBO drama has cast Marcia Gay Harden in the role of attorney Rebecca Halliday, an attorney who represents Atlantis Cable News against a wrongful-termination lawsuit, a spokeswoman for the network told TheWrap on Tuesday.

Harden, who has appeared on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Body of Proof," is replacing "United States of Tara" star Rosemarie DeWitt, who had to bow out of the series after filming two episodes. DeWitt's scenes will be re-filmed with Harden in her place.

DeWitt bowed out of the series due to scheduling conflicts. The second season of "The Newsroom" will premiere in the summer.
