‘Newsroom’ Recast: Marcia Gay Harden to replace Rosemarie DeWitt



The Newsroom‘s second season will feature Marcia Gay Harden, whose tv credits also include Law & Order: SVU, Damages, and Royal Pains. 

Harden will play the recurring role of Rebecca Halliday, a litigator who defends Atlantis Cable News in a wrongful termination suit.

As TVLine reported last week, DeWitt — who has already shot several episodes as Rebecca — was forced to leave the show due to scheduling conflicts. (Her scenes will be reshot with Harden.)
