Hagman, Turner, Shields go in for ‘Nip/Tuck’

Source: MSNBC

In addition to Sanaa Lathan joining the cast, I just read that Larry Hagman, Kathleen Turner and Brooke Shields will appear as guest stars on Nip/Tuck in season 4!! FX is definitely putting the $$ behind the show this year.

According to the article, Hagman will play the much older husband of a beautiful thirtysomething woman (Sanaa Lathan), who buy McNamara/Troy, the Miami-based plastic surgery practice of Dr. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon).

I am glad to see Kathleen Turner appearing this year as I loved her guest star appearances on Friends as Chandler's mom dad. Turner will play Cindy Plumb, a scotch- and cigarette-voiced phone-sex operator who comes to McNamara/Troy to rejuvenate her voice through a vocal cord surgery.

Brooke Shields will appear in the "Nip/Tuck" fourth-season opener as Dr. Wolper, a shrink in whom Troy confides.

Hagman is best known for his roles in "Dallas" and "I Dream of Jeannie." Turner voices one of the characters in Sony's upcoming animated feature "Monster House." Shields starred in "Suddenly Susan," which ran for four seasons on NBC.
