Marcia Gay Harden will join the cast of ABC’s HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER. The freshman legal drama stars Viola Davis as a criminal defense professor who gets entangled in a murder plot that seems to implicate the students in her class. There are no specific details on the character Harden will play but she will be a recurring guest star after the series comes back from the midseason finale.
Although Harden is probably best known for her roles in films like Mystic River, Into the Wild and Space Cowboys, she’s no stranger to the TV landscape. Over the years Harden has appeared on series like Damages, Royal Pains, The Newsroom, and ABC’s short lived series Trophy Wife. Her upcoming projects include roles in Fifty Shades of Grey and the comedy Get a Job.
Harden is repped by ICM and Framework Entertainment.
