Marc Anthony Joins The Cast Of TNT’s Hawthorne

marc-anthonyMarc Anthony is joining the cast of  TNT’s Hawthorne, the powerful drama series starring and executive-produced by Jada Pinkett Smith. Anthony will reprise the newly expanded role of Police Detective Nick Renata, the character he introduced as a guest star in two episodes last season. Hawthorne is scheduled to return for its third season this June. I have to admit that when I first heard about this show before it premiered I was convinced it wouldn’t make it through the first season and while I still don’t watch it it seems lots of people do so good for them.

Anthony joins Hawthorne as a series regular just as Pinkett Smith’s Christina Hawthorne, Chief Nursing Officer of James River Hospital, struggles with news that she is pregnant. The two developed a strong bond last season while Renata investigated a pair of criminal cases involving the hospital. But Christina, whose on-again, off-again romance with Dr. Tom Wakefield (Michael Vartan – Alias) has been a mess of mixed signals and bad timing, told Nick she was not ready to jump into a new relationship.
