Marcia Gay Harden has just signed on as a recurring guest star on How to Get Away with Murder, EW has learned.

The Trophy Wife alum, who can next be seen on The Newsroom, will first appear during the second half of the first season. Details on her role are being kept secret, so start guessing in the comments. My money’s on her being the legal representation of whoever killed Sam (Tom Verica).

How to Get Away with Murder airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
