Brooke Shields Joins Lifetime's 'Army Wives'
The Golden Globe nominee becomes the latest addition for the drama's seventh season.
Lifetime's Army Wives reboot continues to add star power.
Golden Globe nominee Brooke Shields (Suddenly Susan) has joined the ranks of the drama as a recurring player, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Shields will play the brash and brilliant Air Force Col. Katherine "Kat" Young, who's a crack pilot who can hold her own in the boys club atmosphere of the military. She'll almost immediately clash with Army Gen. Michael Holden (Brian McNamara) in her new assignment at Joint Base Marshall. Never one to step away from a fight, Kat is a fierce advocate for the Air Force as she and Holden jockey for their respective branches at the highest levels of power on base. Only after their initial skirmishes does Holden learn of Kat's tragic past, discovering they have more in common than he thought.
The former Lipstick Jungle actress joins a swelling cast that includes actor-musician Jesse McCartney (Greek), who will have an 11-episode recurring arc and three new series regulars in Broadway alum Elle McLemore, Ashanti and Torrey DeVitto (The Vampire Diaries).
Army Wives, which was renewed in September, will return with a major shake-up for its seventh season with star Kim Delaney exiting the drama and co-star Sally Pressman recurring as the series will confront the aftermath of the deadly plane crash featured in its sixth-season finale.
Season 7 of Army Wives premieres March 10 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.
Shields is repped by UTA and Untitled Entertainment.
