Cynthia Nixon is heading away from “SATC” and towards “The Big C” as she signs on to a multi-episode arc of the new Showtime dramedy starring Laura Linney.
Linney plays Cathy, a woman who learns she has cancer and decides to reclaim her life in the face of the terminal diagnosis. Nixon will play Rebecca, Cathy’s flaky, long-lost college roommate. She is slated to appear in four episodes of the 13-episode first season.
“The Big C” premieres Monday, August 16 at 10:30 p.m. on Showtime, following the sixth season premiere of “Weeds.” What do you think, “SATC” fans? Will you tune in to see Miranda in a brand new role?
