Filming of The Newsroom season 2 is about to begin and HBO Watch can now confirm that the cast will expand by at least two when the show returns in Summer of 2013. Patton Oswalt and Rosemarie DeWitt are joining Will McAvoy on the set of The Newsroom.
The two have already worked together on United States of Tara (image right).
Ms. Oswalt’s character is described as:
Jonas Pfeiffer, the new vice president of human resources at the cable network Atlantic Cable News.
While Rosemarie will portray:
Rebecca Halliday, a litigator brought in to defend the network in a wrongful termination suit.
We’re excited to see what they bring to the show! We expect more news from the now filming Newsroom season two and we’ll bring it to you when we have it. The second season is due to premiere in Spring/Summer 2013.
