Patton Oswalt and Rosemarie DeWitt have been cast in the upcoming season of HBO's The Newsroom.
The Hollywood Reporter has said that Oswalt will play the new Human Resources VP for Atlantic Cable News. Whereas DeWitt will play a litigator in a wrongful termination lawsuit.
I am glad to see Patton Oswalt take on another dramatic role. Even though he can be very comedic, I think he has just as good, if not better, dramatic acting chops. I loved him in Big Fan. DeWitt can be seen in The Odd Life of Timothy Green and The Watch. This marks somewhat of a reunion for the two actors as they played a couple in the Showtime dramedy United States of Tara.
A return date for The Newsroom has yet to be decided.
What do you think of this casting news? Glad to see Oswalt in another dramatic role? Should he stick to comedy?
