ConstanceConstance Zimmer is going from slash-and-burn doctor to spin doctor.

Zimmer’s character, named Taylor, is a rep for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. (Remember, the HBO drama is set in the recent past, and Season 2 will cover the run-up to the 2012 national election).

The Aaron Sorkin series also recently tapped Marcia Gay Harden to replace guest star Rosemarie DeWitt as a lawyer defending ACN in a wrongful termination suit.

In addition to Entourage and Grey’s, Zimmer’s TV credits include Royal PainsBoston LegalThe New Normal and Netflix’s House of Cards.

  • As long as she still on “House of Cards”, I’m OK if she goes to “The Newsroom”, which let’s face it, is not a good show.

  • Constance rocks – glad she’s coming aboard Newsroom. :) Her Dana on Entourage was one of that great series best characters. Love her.

  • I don’t have anything against her acting at all, but any warmth she may exude as a person is completely gone once it hits the camera. Even when she plays nice, warm people, I don’t feel it from her. She gives off a weird vibe to me.

  • Constance Zimmer is great. Would love to see her spar, in more than one way, with Will. Would make for an interesting storyline.
