Rosemarie DeWitt Leaves The Newsroom – Part Will Be Recast

Rosemarie DeWittThe Newsroom is making a casting change for its second season. Rosemarie DeWitt was supposed to appear in the HBO news-focused drama series, however she’s reportedly leaving the show. What’s more, her scenes will be re-shot with a different actor, though there’s no word on who that will be.

EW reports that DeWitt was brought in to play recurring character Rebecca Halliday, “a litigator who defends Atlantis Cable News in a wrongful termination suit.” Dewitt had already shot a couple of episodes, however EW’s source says they changed the story around, which affected the role’s production timeline and presented a conflict for the actor. So it sounds like more of a practical matter than any kind of drama on set or “creative differences.”

DeWitt’s notable TV roles include the part of Charmaine on Showtime’s United States of Tara and the recurring role of Midge Daniels on the first season of Mad Men.
