I told you a while back that Nurse Jackie was coming back in 2012 for season four. Well, now there are some casting news for that fourth season.
Award-winning actors Aida Turturro and Joel Grey will each guest star on one episode of the upcoming season of NURSE JACKIE. This will mark a reunion for series star Edie Falco and Turturro as both starred together on the long-running hit drama series The Sopranos. Production on season four of NURSE JACKIE is currently underway in New York for a 2012 premiere. The two stars join the recently announced Rosie Perez and Bobby Cannavale as season four guest stars.
Turturro earned a SAG® Award and two Emmy® nominations for her role as Janice, Tony Soprano’s (James Gandolfini) narcissistic, manipulative sister who often found herself on the wrong side of Tony’s wife Carmela, played by Falco. On NURSE JACKIE, Turturro will guest star in one episode in a pivotal role. She has made memorable performances on Curb Your Enthusiasm, Mercy, Medium and ER.
In addition, veteran stage and screen star Joel Grey will make an appearance in one episode as a patient suffering from dementia. Grey is one of only eight actors to win a Tony® and an Oscar® for playing the same role (Cabaret). He’s starred in countless films and television series, including Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy, Brothers & Sisters, Oz and Alias. Most recently he co-directed the Tony®-winning revival of The Normal Heart and is currently starring on Broadway in Anything Goes.
