My favorite sporadically employed actress has landed herself an new gig.
According to ComingSoon.net, Angela Bassett will be joining the cast of "ER."
Angela Bassett will join the cast of the Emmy-winning medical drama "ER" as a regular next season.
Bassett will play a tough attending with a troubled past who's coming back to Chicago after a few years in Indonesia doing tsunami relief. Her arrival in the second episode next season promises to shake County General's ER to the core.
"Angela is a wonderfully talented actress whom I've long hoped to work with," said "ER" executive producer John Wells.
I don't watch "ER" and I never have and I likely never will (even with Angela on it), but I like it when Angela holds down a check. Granted, this is (of course) the last season of "ER," but why not go out with some Angela "Git Yo' Shit" Bassett in there?
