Deadline reports that stage vet Marcy Harriell has joined the cast of the Showtime comedy series NURSE JACKIE in a recurring story arc. She will join recently announced new cast member Morris Chestnut on the series.

The actress will play 'Marta Rodriguez,' described as "a new nurse on the floor — a mother of three who takes extra shifts whenever she can." Chestnut will portray 'Ike Prentiss,' described as "a new trauma doctor, a former Army medic who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is very good at his job but can learn a lot from Jackie (Edie Falco) about bedside care."

Harriell is best known for her lead roles in the Broadway productions of Rent and In The Heights. Chestnut was recently seen on the FX drama series 'American Horror Story." His film credits include 'Think Like a Man' and the upcoming Kick Ass 2, Identity Thief and The Hive. He is currently in negotiations to play the role of Graham Jackson in Fox Searchlight’s Baggage Claim.
