Emmy Winner Alan Alda Scrubs In for The Big C

Legendary M*A*S*H doc Alan Alda is scrubbing in once again, this time for Showtime’s The Big C.

Shameless Finale Earns Record Ratings

The three-time Emmy-winning actor will appear in one episode of the series’ second season as Dr. Atticus Sherman, an oncologist Cathy (played by Golden Globe-winner Laura Linney) consults with after she discovers that her previous melanoma treatment has failed.

Alda last appeared on TV in December, in what was his third appearance on NBC’s 30 Rock as Jack Donaghy’s (Alec Baldwin) polar opposite father, Milton Greene. Since M*A*S*H finaled in front of more than 100 million viewers, the acting vet also has had extended runs on The West Wing and ER.

    I am very excited for The Big C to return. It’s one of my favorite new shows. Laura Linney is genius!

    Does this mean Dr. Todd is no more? I’m gonna miss him if that’s the case :(

    The Big C was amazing, best show of 2010, but it ended in a way that another season isn’t needed. However this just makes season 2 even more amazing.
