Rosemarie DeWitt’s loss is Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden‘s gain.

The Newsroom has tapped Harden to replace DeWitt in the HBO drama’s upcoming second season, TVLine has confirmed.

Harden will play the recurring role of Rebecca Halliday, a litigator who defends Atlantis Cable News in a wrongful termination suit.

As TVLine reported last week, DeWitt — who has already shot several episodes as Rebecca — was forced to leave the show due to scheduling conflicts. (Her scenes will be reshot with Harden.)

Harden’s TV credits include arcs on Damages, Law & Order: Svu and Royal Pains.
