HBO is adding staffers to The Newsroom.
Oswalt will play Jonas Pfeiffer, the new vp human resources at cable network Atlantic Cable News, while DeWitt will portray Rebecca Halliday, a litigator brought in to defend the network in a wrongful-termination lawsuit.
The casting marks a reunion for Oswalt and DeWitt, who played a couple on the Showtime dramedy United States of Tara.
Oswalt, repped by CAA, Generate and Ginsburg Daniels, most recently had arcs on CBS’ Two and a Half Men and HBO’s Bored to Death. ICM Partners, Wishlab and Ziffren Brittenham-repped DeWitt’s credits include Mad Men and the feature The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
A return date for Newsroom has yet to be determined.
