NBC has confirmed to EW that Virginia Madsen (Sideways) will join the cast of its freshman series The Event, in a recurring role. The Oscar-nominated actress, who most recently starred in ABC’s Scoundrels, will play attorney Catherine Lewis, the widow of an Alaskan senator who has inherited his position. Deadline broke the casting news earlier this morning, after initially reporting NBC had offered the role to Friday Night Lights‘ star Connie Britton. The Event is currently on hiatus and will return with new episodes on February 28.
