How to Get Away With Murder Adds Oscar Winner Marcia Gay Harden

Marcia-Gay-Harden-HTGAWM

Look for Murder to top Marcia Gay Harden‘s list of New Year’s resolutions for 2015.

The Oscar-winning actress, last seen on TV in the lovely but short-lived Trophy Wife, is joining ABC freshman smash How to Get Away With Murder in a mysterious recurring role, TVLine has learned.

While the network declined to give details about Harden’s character, it noted that her stint on the Viola Davis drama will begin after the show’s mid-winter break.

HTGAWM will air three more new episodes in 2014 — on Nov. 6, Nov. 13, and a Nov. 20 “winter finale” that promises to return to “the evening of the bonfire” and “finally see what exactly happened on the night of Sam’s death.”

Stoked about Harden jumping into the Murder mix? Any theories or wishes about who she might play? Sound off below!

  3. Shaun says:

    bleh,I got her confused with Marcia Cross and was excited for a second.

    • Angela says:

      Heh, I made that mix up at first, too.
      But still, cool news. The fact that they’re not giving any info on her character has me really going, “Hmmmm…” now. Interest officially piqued.

      That’s more of an indictment of your own personal tastes than a slam on Marcia Gay Harden, lol

  4. TW says:

    Hmmm. Maybe the first Mrs. Sam?

  5. Juan says:

    Awesome love her and scenes with her and viola would be amazing.

  6. Mina says:

    SHe’s amazing, she was the only reason I watched Trophy wife

    • radmcawesome says:

      Remember when her character got obsessed with Scandal and dragged her house keeper and her husband into binge watching with her? I loved that episode.

  7. B says:

    Fantastic news! She and Viola Davis will be great together!

    • Shelley says:

      Wow, amazing news. Possibly the first mrs to Sam. Just 3 more episodes in 2014. It’s gone by fast, such a great show. Viola and Marsha G will be great.

  8. Bryce says:

    After her poorly-written Damages arc, I’m glad to see her in another flashback-y legal drama. Redemption!

  9. Kim says:

    I disagree with adding Marcia to the show. Viola Davis made this show a hit.

    • radmcawesome says:

      I agree that Viola Davis is the powerhouse that grounds the show but adding Marcia Gay Harden will be an amazing addition for the show.

  10. Lee says:

    Viola Davis doesn’t need support to make the show a hit. She’s a strong character.

  11. Christian says:

    Fantastic news. She will only make a great show even more must see TV.

  12. Eva says:

    Viola Davis and MGH on one show? The rest of the cast can just go home :p Can’t wait!

    • Ron says:

      Agreed. The rest of the cast is good. But next to Viola–not even kinda sorta competition. Next to Viola AND Marcia–the rest of the cast can just have many seats.

    • herman1959 says:

      DITTO. MGH is the first of the caliber to play against Viola Davis. Any scenes they have together should burn up the set!

    I don’t like her at all, but I like the show. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to suffer through it.
