NURSE JACKIE CASTING NEWS!
SHOWTIME has tapped Emmy Award-winner Tony Shalhoub (Monk) in the hit comedy NURSE JACKIE, starring Edie Falco as a flawed emergency room nurse. Shalhoub will recur as Dr. Bernard Prince, a new ER doctor who has a great bedside manner, a special touch with Akkalitus and who offers Jackie something she desperately needs – a friend.
Best known to television audiences as the obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk, in Monk, a role which earned him four straight Emmy nominations and three wins, Shalhoub has been starring in hit television and movie projects for years, including the long-running sitcom Wings, Men in Black and Men in Black II. Other film appearances include Stanley Tucci’s hit Big Night, Made Up, Barton Fink, Cars I and Cars II, and the current Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

SHOWTIME will premiere provocative new drama series THE AFFAIR on Sunday, October 19th at 10 pm ET/PT. The series stars Golden Globe nominees Dominic West (The Wire) and Ruth Wilson (Luther), as well as Emmy nominee Maura Tierney (ER) and SAG Award nominee Joshua Jackson (Fringe). As an added bonus, an early look at footage from the seductive one-hour drama is now available: http://s.sho.com/TheAffair
THE AFFAIR explores the emotional and psychological effects of an extramarital affair. The provocative drama will be told separately from the male and female perspectives – using the distinct memory biases to both misdirect and intrigue. Wilson plays Alison, a young woman waiting tables at a popular Hamptons diner, trying to piece her life back together in the wake of a tragedy. Her husband Cole (Jackson), struggles to keep it all together, both with his wife and the financially-strained ranch that has been in his family for generations. Their emotionally-charged marriage becomes even more complicated when Alison begins an affair with Noah (West), a New York City public school teacher and aspiring novelist who is spending the summer at his in-laws’ estate out on the island. Tierney plays Helen, Noah’s college sweetheart, best friend, mother of his children, lover and wife of 17 years. Award-winning playwright and writer/producer Sarah Treem (House of Cards, In Treatment) wrote the original script from a story created with Hagai Levi. They first worked together on the American adaption of Levi’s show In Treatment. Treem and Levi will both serve as executive producers, along with executive producer and director Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights) and executive producer Eric Overmyer.
