Former UNITED STATES OF TARA co-stars, Patton Oswalt and Rosemarie DeWitt, are set to join the second season of Aaron Sorkin hit HBO series, THE NEWSROOM, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed today.

Jeff Daniels (Golden Globe nominee for "The Squid and the Whale," "Something Wild" and "The Purple Rose of Cairo") stars as Will McAvoy andEmily Mortimer ("Hugo," "Shutter Island") stars as MacKenzie McHale.
