Harden won Best Supporting Actress for her role as artist Jackson Pollock’s wife (played by Ed Harris) in the 2000 movie Pollock. She earned another Oscar nomination for her supporting role in Clint Eastwood’s Mystic River. (Source: IMDb)

Very nice addition! And can’t you just see her going toe to toe with Elena Lincoln (aka Mrs. Robinson)?!

Once we get Carrick cast, the Grey family will be complete. We don’t know about the rest of you, but we keep thinking Kevin Spacey will be cast somewhere along the line. Both he and Marcia Gay Harden are 54. There’s Carrick Grey, Ray Steele, Dr. Flynn… You never know. Regardless, it’s so much fun seeing the cast come together.
